Re: ISP Monitoring

said by brianiscool:

When internet service providers start to monitor our data. Will you guys be switching to the TOR browser for privacy reasons?

I was under the impression that "Six Strikes" was about response to IP owner complaints; that the ISPs were not actively monitoring specific protocols. How would an ISP know if a torrent was illegally transferring IP unless the IP owner complained?

In any case, not a problem for me:

• I don't torrent MPAA/RIAA shit.
• My ISP is not participating in "Six Strikes".

How? Just like they have been doing. The copyright owner or proxy jumps into the swarm and collects IP addresses. The notices are then sent to the respective ISPs.

Uhm maybe you need to read my comment again. I answered your question.

My humblest apologies, sir; I forgot to include the [rhetorical]-[/rhetorical] flags. I thought the inclusion of the answer (bolded) was an obvious clue.

So the question that you bolded was really an answer, to my answer, that you were rhetorically saying? If you say so...

Btw, there is no need to be sarcastic and abrasive.
