    I've noticed that there is an increasing number of:

    1. Corrupt files (e.g. wrong file names, parts missing or just corrupted)
    2. Files which redirect you to websites

    Anybody else noticing this?

    Also, if you want to criticise P2P, please do it in your own thread.

    It's fairly easy to identify and avoid files which redirect you to websites.. they're usually tagged "sponsored result" or something along those lines.

    And regarding the corrupt files problem.. it has always existed in my experience. Hasn't particularly become more pronounced. Generally I just d/l the file anyway, and *usually* it turns out time. Occasionally there's the rare pain which will send me scurrying away looking for alternative sources.

    utorrent is the program of choice.

    "corrupted files" indeed!

    That's what I do too. Hardly ever found a need to download albums though.
