@craigmaloney It boggles my mind that people still torrent without using VPNs or seedboxes. Not using Usenet I can understand since it's hard to set up. But seedboxes and VPNs are stupid easy.

@craigmaloney This shit pisses me off.

I worked on an deployment for a large institution. Server networks were fine. Access networks hit a snag.

In IPv4, only registered MAC addresses got an IP address from the main DHCP server. This meant if they got notice from the MAFIAA, which contained timestamp+IP, they could look up who had the IP in the logs and hand the offender to the wolves.

There is no convenient equivalent mechanism in v6 so, fearing such a lawsuit, they refused to deploy.
