Too bad this program just brutally hitches onto the torrent network and downloads everything as typical brrip, typically what you'd find on TPB. If you block this shitty program then it'll stop working and downloads will cease, if you leave it open then your completely subject to a barrage of attacks from your ISP, MPAA, RIAA, BPI, etc.

What F'ing idiot would knowingly allow this unless you're living in a third world country that most could care less about???
