    I was about to download mr robot torrent but I saw a couple of messages in comments about isps watching the torrent and that ppl got warnings

    I then downloaded peerblock and noticed loads of anti p2p things as well as the government which peerblock was blocking so I guess that shit has been happening for a while on my system and no trouble yet?.

    Am I going to be arrested?

    You would have been OK if you had not started this thread. But I have reported this thread to the police. Piracy is a serious crime.

    I am cosigning their reports. I reported your IP. Piracy laws are there for a reason, sir.

    Regarding websites vs downloading I thought it was a toss up between which will more likely infect the computer with malware. Seems like about an even split risk wise unless anyone cares to enlighten me.
