Most people here have full time jobs I'm assuming.
I wouldn't assume that at all.
I'm willing to bet there are a fair number of student aged people on this site. Just see how often someone refers to their parents cable service. Also, old farts like me are not downloading nearly 250Gb of content.
Yep, people with full time jobs dont have time to be gamers and live in gaming land and have time to be always trying out the latest things in PC gaming land.

Kids without jobs also p2p a lot since their allowance wont cover $200 a month of entertainment.
I am 49 and have a full time job.
I am an on-line gamer.
I use p2p when needed.
But I get DVDs from netflix.

If I were to watch movies over the Internet, maybe I could hit 250GB. But I don't have a computer connected to my TV and I don't like watching movies on my computer.

Anyway, 250GB seems like more than I could ever use in a month. I guess I should start downloading every Linux distro out there! OMG I need more disk space! I only have 2TB!
