Torrents suck. Usenet rocks. I constantly max out my connection, and don't have to upload shit.

darkside.org You don't need an invite but it will take about 24 hours for your account to be activated. Here is link http://94.75.224.58/forums/ You will need to be registered and logged in before you can access torrents.

Private torrents? Anyone care to explain to a n00b.

I'm familiar with regular torrents, utorrent, and I use torrentz.com... but whats the difference in a "Private" torrent?

Private torrent sites are just that Private. You usually need to be invited by a reputable member in order to join, less risk of getting busted downloading copyrighted material and less chance of people uploading fake torrents to the site. Demonoid is an example of a private torrent site, you cannot just go there and upload/download torrents unless you are a member and you cannot just become a member you must get a invite code from someone who has a certain amount of post, uploads/downloads ect ect.

usually private sites are ALOT faster than public sites.

the site i use people care about seeding, you have to have a good ratio or you'll get ban.

Usenet is nice, but it cost money aswell. I usually only use it for things harder to find. And I usually use public trackers for torrents, I have 22mb gaurenteed at the house so I still pull 1.5-2mbs down on a good file. I'd like to look into a free usenet service though. I can get roughly 9mb/s with usenext! :)

You set your upload to 0kbps? Isohunt is still a torrent site to the best of my knowledge.

Also, there is less risk of your IP being recorded, as it is not P2P.
