Torrents

One of the replies to the ACS debate taking place on another forum someone replied,
You could just download the torrent and do the searches yourself?
I Have never used a torrent... are they safe ?  Are they free ?
I have no interest in downloading films or music but if I used a torrent could this be flagged up by PNet and my name passed on to ACS or other organisation ?
Would my antivirus & Firewall protect me from anything dodgy on a torrent site ?
Are there good / bad torrents, do you use one, can you recommend one.
Thanks.

Re: Torrents

a torrent is a file held on a server pointing to the file you may want to download.  legitimate uses of torrents include pointers to linux distributions, which is what i use them for.
