Relatively Obscure: Maybe, but it's just not that goddamn tough. I can open up my browser, type nothing but "PORN" into the address bar, and it brings up a link to streaming porn. That seems easier to figure out than torrents. But, some people are easy to overestimate, it's true. A friend of mine did recently have to give a talk at her work on using email. So, you could be right.
scottydoesntknow: Relatively Obscure: /People pirate porn? Why?Because they're behind on technology. They were just figuring out how to search pictures when torrents started to show up. Now they're downloading torrents when most tech-savvy people know that tons of sites are just straight streaming it.

yukichigai: Here's an odd realization I had: if this is successful, in that the IP address is not considered sufficient to prove an individual user did the downloading, then I expect the industry to (slowly) get behind pushing IPv6.Why? Because there are so many addresses, NAT pretty much doesn't happen anymore, even on residential routers (the few that support IPv6 anyway).
Cewley: fark you subby. i spent six months on a grand jury, and i can assure you most of them had a higher iQ then yours.
