Bittorrent

Is it against forum policy to link .Torr files?

I mean technically I am simply pointing to a file hosted on another site - I dont see how that could be illegal. if that person should choose to follow the link and then download the file that doesnt seem to be my (or darkoforums) liability.

"...depends on the country, in Switzerland there is no law against "downloading" period, whereas "uploading" is illegal..." mentioned the goblin, also noting those two other problems of "proving identity" and "ownership" played into the hands of the perpetrator here , adding "...for example, if they need to prove that x or y computer downloaded something that is on a USB key where there is no harddrive on the computer, ie, that one is using a live CD where the IP is static and the mac address behind it is cloned, proving that fact can only be done if one is caught red handed, also if one denies that the USB key is yours, having only found it, etc., etc., you get a good idea why Switzerland has given up on the matter...", though the goblin understood that linking and downloading were different too, but then again it was almost impossible to link anything that couldn't in turn be downloaded by doing so, "...no wonder, Youtube stopped having music streams then, since converting streams to MP3 is child's play isn't it..."

no shit sherlock - what I was asking is if it is OK to post a link pointing to a .tor file hosted on another site.

I could see why hosting the .tor file here on darkforum would be against forum policy - but I dont see how pointing a link to another site who is hosting the tor file would be a problem.

I wouldn't suggest it, if it turns out the file is infected it's gonna look bad on you and i'm sure no one wants that.

True that, isn't there a way to p2p link up with specific people using bittorrent? Anyways linking someone up with a torrent seems pretty minimally spammish compared to the shit we deal with everyday right?! Buy shoes, shoes this, gay sex that, I mean I doubt it will cause an upheaval or anything.

"...is the thing you are linking something "open source" or something actually belonging to you then..." asked the goblin

Well this is what I think- If it's on the net, it belongs to me.

Precisely, I'd suggest maybe figuring out who is interested and private messaging the link. You know haters are gonna hate, it's their nature.
