Kinda stupid question, but I honestly have been curious. :)

    Just to clarify before-hand, I am female, and have NEVER downloaded porn. Just used the xtube stuff.

    Now that the personal/humiliating info is out of the way... The question, and this can be moved if in the wrong place!!

    When downloading porn to use in projects and stuff, is it more recommended to find a program that rips it from places like xtube? I found that Limewire seems to have so much that would be useful, but at the same time it just seems to me the only benefit uploaders get is adding a virus/ppi. Is downloading this kinda content from Limewire not recommended for those reasons? Is there any kinda file that cannot have a combined nasty?

    -yes, running AVG, really just wanted to ask this before grabbing anything there, whether not worth the trouble or whatever.

    I have not ever used limewire because like you said, it is the virus that I am worried about. However some still use it and don't worry. However, you might as well download the "download helper" addon for mozilla which will help you download from video sharing websites. Then go to a variety of video sharing sites to rip out the videos. There are also other ways, like a buddy of mine who got a rapidshare premium account and went on a rampage downloading x videos. The videos were massive. So from all the videos, he broke all of them down into 1min clips. This way he got about 50 to 60 one-minute clips from each video.

    '...The problem with Limewire and other P2P clients is some people find it amusing to name a file one thing but after downloading, it is clearly something else.

    From sites such as Limewire it is relatively easy to unknowingly download illegal child porn in the belief you are getting something else. For this reason, at the very least, you should always use a proxy.

    When downloading from Limewire, viruses are the least of your worries and in my case, any viruses are immediately and automatically removed but probably wouldn't harm me as I use a Mac.

    limewire and frostwire both have preview options, which should always be used before downloading the entire file.

    if you want to download a lot of stuff from limewire and so on, its a good idea to switch to linux, ubuntu is great.

    adware and virusus cant harm your system.

    99.99 % of virusus are written for windows, so..
