      Newzbin do not share any illegal software and do not hold any to share, all it does is index newsgroups.

      You can use Google to find the same things.

      And those who really want to use that kind of site will, like you said will get a seedbox or a VPN account.

      My worry is when they push more and more normal users to use security avoidance methods how will they then filter out the real criminals/terorists.

      There are substantiated claims that there are many terrorists hiding in Pakistan at the moment. With this in mind, there was a recent story which claimed that the Pakistani Government have banned VPNs and encryption software for anyone in their country.

      Don't ask me how successful the ban has been.

      Yeah, I think I have read about that before but not Pakistan and I think it may have been France, Belgium, or Holand or at least in that area.

      I guess it will be UK next.

      So how are those hundreds of GB's of torrents downloaded each month going then?
