    Has this ever happened to any of you guys here?

    I grabbed a bunch of porn a while back on Kazaa. I didn't read every description of what I was getting, I just went through the list clicking files. I came back later to check my computer and noticed that one of files had a risky title. What I mean by risky is possible underage crap. It had the word 'teen' mixed in with a lot of other porn words (I did not search for the word 'teen' either). I erased the file without looking at it, but I have still been very concerned that someone (law enforcement) could have grabbed that file from my computer before I noticed it was on there. I didn't check at the time, I was just wanting to get rid of the file and off Kazaa ASAP.

    Has this ever happened to anyone here before? Other than delete it, what else are you supposed to do? This has really been bothering me.

    It would be nice to have some kind of a warning like "hey what you are about to download contains words that are associated with going to prison for a long time, getting beat up, losing your family, never getting a job again, etc.".

    I know that here in Australia, there have recently been massive, massive operations to catch the assholes who spread this disgusting stuff around the internet, but they have assured the public that if they accidentally stumble upon something out of random, they won't be at your door the next day. Just promptly delete it, it is all you can really do aside from be a snitch to the cops, but they can't really do a hell of a lot when it comes to P2P either. So don't stress over it, it has happened to a few of us.

    Thanks, OzMick

    I figured that with undesirable files being mixed in with all the files you are actually looking for, there had to be other people that have stumbled across it. Unfortunately, this whole incident has really turned me away from file sharing.
