Torrents: love, hate, or neutral towards them?

So do you love, hate, or are you neutral towards torrents?

Oh wow...If I had gotten anything like that I would have freaked the fuck out. o_o
I'm extremely lucky to live in a place where no one cares about pirating, yay! But still, that must have been scary getting letters like that. That's my biggest nightmare

It does get annoying though when my brother uses them and wrecks the internet speed ~_~
"That's why Youtube is the largest entertainment site.
Not only the videos are a form of entertainment, but also the comments have their own genre.
There's drama, comedy, horror, suspense, thriller, zombie (comments that are just plain brainless), action, and even motivational (ones that provoke you to do something, punching babies included)"

nothing irritates me more than hearing someone from the forum saying he got it in two days when It took me three weeks!

I live in a rather small country
Torrents are nice but each user is responsible for making it work. I seed my torrents all the time, even when I don't want to download anything.
They've always been useful but increasingly so for large files, what with speed and size caps everywhere on direct downloading sites.

8Mb my ass , i'm happy if i have half than that , and i's not often i see more than 300 ko/s

Tsk tsk tsk. Not fast at all, just 4mbps ┐('～`；)┌
(I wished I lived in school library too oTL)
Waltz a seed or seeding? I have tried to read google articles about it but it's too complex for me.

That's actually the reaction they're going for. The MAFIAA (RIAA and MPAA) are well known for spamming DMCA notices to people who aren't actually doing stuff in hopes they'll 'settle' instead of actually going to court.
The funny thing about a DMCA notice is that it has to be filed by the actual copyright holder, and you can counter-sue if they filed a frivolous one against you. You may want to learn a little more about these things....

I know you're just joking, but I probably could have gotten it faster if there were more seeders. I have fiber (connected with an ethernet cable to the router), and my plan says it goes up to 100mbps. I usually get upwards of 1mbps in any given torrent, and my max was probably 5mbps (memory is blurry here), but I know there are several factors that might reduce its performance + ISPs always overselling. Bandwidth is also unlimited so no problem there. Bear in mind that this plan also includes a ton of TV channels and phone, which I seldom use but, yeah. I'm pretty happy about it.
As for browsing the web, I know in advance that if a website is slow/offline, it's definitely a problem on the server's end, as everything loads lightning fast otherwise (VO for instance).

So yeah, really helpful download tool to me.

Also a quick question but what torrent client are you guys using ? For me it's uTorrent.
