Default Re: Best Bit Torrent Client

That shouldn't be an issue unless you're downloading illegal content.

In that case it doesn't really matter where you download the torrent from. It's still pretty easy for someone to track you. After all, your IP address is published to the tracker. Which means anyone else downloading the same torrent (i.e. anti-p2p agencies such as MPAA, RIAA, etc.) can get your IP too. All they need to do is run a whois, and contact your ISP.
