    Word up kids.

    I just found a site where DOD:S was leaked, which sucks.

    I was looking at it, and I found out, from PeerGuardian, Valve was trying to get into my machine...which was odd.

    Didnt the Internet Privacy Act of 1995 state that a third party cannot access the information of who downloads what from a website? I wonder...

    ..dont mean for this to be Warez talk, sorry if it is. But this is more a discussion about the Internet Privacy Act.

    LOL are you stupid, Any valve game has built in monitoring functions, when you run it, it sends out the info on you and your liscense. If it isn't valid they will check you out and rape you with lawyers. It isn't illegal.

    Nah, they just block your account from accessing the servers for online play. ^_^
