Default Is it true that NZB's are SAFER than TORRENTS?

Is it true that NZB's are SAFER than TORRENTS?

Quote:
Yeah, you wouldn't recommend newsgroups because you do not understand newsgroups (and likely don't understand torrents either).

To put it super simply, when you download a file from a torrent site, you are making a connection with every person who is also downloading that file. Including gub-mint groups and anti-piracy groups who now have your IP address.

When you download a NZB, it is a private transaction between you and your ISP - no other person or PC is connecting to your PC. The only place that has your IP is your service provider. Your service provider will demand warrants of anyone wanting that information.

Plus, newsgroups aren't actually websites, lol, there are a few places that help newbs find nzb's faster, and have filters to get rid of "bad" nzb's, but we are talking the old-skool Newsgroups servers here. You don't need a site to find what you are looking for.

Of course, NZB's do take a bit of compuliteracy, and many folks are lacking that...

No they won't. They'll give your shit up right away, and even if they do put up a fight they'll lose.

Highly doubtful. The law has sided with Usenet Providers time and time again. Only time they've found themselves in legal trouble was a reseller targeting the service towards method of piracy and not a fundamental service.

A very rudimentary version of a forum where you "post" text files or binary (files) on a server for others to see and manually download. It's kind of the predecessor to BBS/Forums.

Providers do not fight for u at all. The only company that faught in my case was microsoft and in the end gave nothing. Everyone else caved and gave what they were asked and even more.

Nah, usenet exists for old school tech troubleshooting and child porn. And with the advent of tor, the latter has become obsolete. The "you connect to untrusted peers" argument is retarded since it's ISPs that chase down piracy, not government agencies (at least not in the last ~decade). Usenet activity is more easily tracked than P2P activity.
