I knew that it wasn't legal, but goddamn, I never thought I'd potentially go to jail for it

They weren't even new games or anything, all I had was Morrowind and KOTOR 1

Sure, I downloaded Baldur's Gate 3 too, but I couldn't even play it since my graphics card wasn't up to date

They're probably monitoring my activity on .co too, that's probably how they found out about it :feelsohgod:

@bigantennaemay1 I guess your not gonna get that Morrowind review

That's all? They just threatened you to shut down your internet?
That's so random. I hope no one sold your infos and used this "downloaded for free game GO GET EM :fbi:" as a casus belli.

Damn hasn't happened to me, i don't even use VPN. Enforcement of those rules probably varies from state to state. You probably live in a red state

It was the government or your ISP?

They did sneak in some legislation in the COVID shit that made it a crime to pirate streamable content. Mostly likely it was your ISP and your mom was confused though.

I asked her whether it was the service provider and she said it was the FBI

It sounds crazy, I know, but it really did happen

It's not impossible if they're counting video games as "streamable content," which you do stream dl it on steam I guess. But seems farfetched.

Stay off public torrent trackers without a good VPN regardless.

microwaving wont destroy solid state memory. do you have any evidence that it will?

depends on the state. in city/crowded areas no or very rare. but in rural red state areas more so

Paying for a VPN is a lot cheaper than going to jail. Using bittorrents without a VPN is like foid level stupid.

I used to get warnings from my ISP and my internet was temporary shut off from pirating.

I now use a VPN.

Damn, I never even got the notification for this. And damn, that sucks, bro. I used to pirate games without VPN back in the day, but I stopped once I was able to get steady income. I never got any notices or anything. Dunno if things were different back then; haven't pirated in almost a decade, I think.:feelsbaton::feelstrash:

I normally stream stuff but the torrent was HD and i didnt want to wait a week or two for the stream to get better quality so i downloaded sumotorrents or something like that and the very next week my mom got a letter tHat said our ptovider was going to slow down and monitor our intermet for a few weeks and if i download more illegal movies they would sue us

my mom was so furious and scared, she beat me good
