First, it appears the forums have shrunk significantly. Has something changed, am I searching incorrectly, or are there really only a few pages of forum posts?
Second, I would like to suggest that we have more control over the P2P category. We run a rather open network, however I need to block "Illegal" P2P sites, while not blocking legitimate P2P sites.
I want to be able to block sites via OpenDNS such as The Pirate Bay, without blocking sites like legittorrents.info which is currently in the P2P category.
- I understand that someone who opens up Bittorrent or eDonkey will connect by IP, and thus OpenDNS will do no blocking.
- I understand some P2P search sites have both legal and illegal content, however I still find value in being able to block sites specifically aimed at facilitating illegal P2P downloads.
- I understand someone could use an anonymous web proxies to find the tracker and then download the .torrent file the P2P by IP directly.
- I understand this doesn't stop people from using VPNs or TOR to facilitate illegal downloads.
Perhaps the category can simply be "Exclusively Piracy Sites" which would include HTTP/HTTPS based sharing such as Mega Upload.
