• With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

...the end of the world as we know it...

Ya know, I've about had it with all this 'Big Brother' **** going on.

Time to drop out of school, sell all my gadgets, and build a cabin in the woods.

Don't most bittorrent clients already use some encryption protocols to get around the ISP's bandwidth throttling?

It sounds like something the hackers would just find hacks and work arounds as well as creating nothing but problems for legit transfers.

When the Comcast issue was big, the big clients were all planning to add suitable encryption to their next releases, not sure what came of it.

I have my WinXP system running uTorrent with encryption enabled for over a year I believe. I don't know if it's doing anything, I don't think my ISP is throttling, but it was a recommended setting.
