When I 1st went to the link, It was OK (I was clean), but when I clicked the "Demo" button, I got an IP I never saw before and movies I wouldn't DL with a gun to my head.

When torrenting, your information is publicly available, sure, but it's not searchable in any way. They would have to be logging all torrents at all times, and keeping a massive, searchable database for that horseshit of a site to actually be real.

And, since the address didn't start with www.google...., I'm gonna assume they don't have the resources lying around to do that. Fake, so fake.

It found one movie I downloaded that is so obscure it's got some legitimacy.

Same, hit the button, got a bullshit IP, and it said I downloaded an episode of How I Met Your Mother back in February. I havent downloaded an episode of that shitty show since November. Bullshit.

[Steve] IT'S REAL!![/Steve] No, it definitely pegged two files I downloaded that are not that common. I believe it.

Now I'm trying it from my office, and it's pulling up shit I definitely didn't dl (like Photoshop CS6 Key Generators ad shit). I call shenanigans.

Edit: Oh wait; that's a demo. I am confuse.
