instead of inside sources supplying to scene groups who supply p2p, there are hackers trying on extortion for withholding a season of a TV show, that aren't being paid but which bring the attention of law enforcement...

The problem with Torrents going, is that they are useful for the little hard to find things.

I mean everyone should have a VPN by now especially if you are torrenting, so if it's TV you're after then you can just stream it directly from a legit US site. Most movies find their way onto Netflix a month after the Bluray rips are out and there is at least a dozen music streaming site which have decent free streaming options.

But if you want to get a copy of some old Linux distribution you remember seeing as a kid or an open source software library that is no longer supported and isn't on Netflix then torrent sites are usually the best option.

I still use torrents and will continue to do so until I am not able to or something better comes along. I can still find torrents for old games and for obscure movies and what-not.
