    Well it is illegal, so I don't know what you want us to tell you?
    :confused:

    The IP log is probably just a scare, but that doesn't alter the fact that you are engaged in an illegal activity.
    No "blah blah blah" about it.
    ;)

    Just going to a website isn't in itself a crime, so it's just a scare message.

    Well if you want to P2P file share, use acquisition or limewire. I will bet that the website saying they logged your IP address is just a scare tactic, as the above poster stated, so I think you're fine.

    canyouseeme. Every website can see your ip address. It's like an ID number for your computer online.
