Stop being stupid. Since when was using ftp or http (ie, the web) a "criminal's tool"? Peer2peer sharing is ftp/http but more efficient on the central server. It means no single server's bandwidth takes a superhit, but everyone downloading takes a small hit instead as they pass on their downloaded chunks to other downloaders.

Hey, do something useful. Download a Linux distro (since these can be redistributed ad infinitum in most cases) and then start a torrent to take the pressure off the main server.
