    What are the best options to avoid having your ISP watching what you're doing?

    Well your ISP can see everything that goes through there servers. So your best bet is to encrypt your data as it leaves your computer. That way your ISP will only be able to see the encrypted data. Perhaps a VPN tunnel supporting encryption or a similar alternative.

    You could also just try to stay under their radar, so they have no reason to watch you. :)

    unless you are hacking into big company networks, writing viruses, or stealing cc/personal information, then why does it matter?

    I do tons of illegal shit.. all day long.. including downloading gigs of warez (thanks to my rs premium account).. My isp is the last of my worry..

    you should be more worried about connecting to government servers and crap. Like when downloading through torrents, p2p, and IRC, you should use PeerGuardian. it will prevent your computer from connecting to any "hot" servers. So it should protect you from getting in a "honey pot".

    So what happens if you use hidemyip or something? Does that help obscure what your ISP sees?
