      Due to dynamic ips the site is useless. It shows I've downloaded a blu ray which of course was downloaded by a previous user of my current ip address. Just scare mongering

      True, but that didn't stop several rounds of prosecutions in the past for illegal filesharing. Each IP will have a timestamp for who was using it at that time, which this site claims to have have, so even if you weren't assigned to that IP at that time, there will be a record of who did, and so will your ISP.

      Of course this is is all just for show, but its interesting nonetheless.

      Hi. We have no records on you.
      This means you are using a private torrent tracker or, of course, you may not be a torrent user at all! It happens.
