    > dramatic

    The ones being dramatic are them. "Under investigation" my arse.

    > You can contact them if you don't watch live TV

    Yes, but this will only (at best) get them off your back for a short while. Also, it gifts them your personal details, which is none of their business, and makes it easier for them to harass you, should they wish to.

    The letters don't bother me. What bothers me are the people who are vulnerable to their scare tactics.

    How is this different to cold-calling, and rather aggressive cold-calling at that?
    Because they have a right in law to enforce the licence. You seem unable to differentiate that from people without such a right.

    Tell them dont tell them up to you. they will just carry on sending the letters then.

    > Tunnelbear

    Someone watches LTT

    I have heard bad things about Tunnelbear tbh
    I actually do occasionally, although I've been using it from before

    It's fastest free vpn from what i've tested, plus it comes as a browser addon so it's hassle free. Your recommendation?

    I'm aware of the law. You are the one struggling to differentiate what is morally acceptable from what is legally acceptable.

    > Free VPN

    I would really tend to avoid those like the plague... but tbf Tunnelbear is probably one of the most reliable FREE VPNs out there.

    Recommendation? Depends what you want to use it for. I don't use mine for torrenting etc., just for generic use.

    I don't use it for any nefarious purposes, it's mainly to stop kikebook/instagoyim and jewgle tracking me even when i'm not signed in. they use your ip to send you ads now.

    >tfw torrent stuff with public ip
    devilish
    although i haven't had any warning letters from my isp in years like some people do, until then i'll continue

    I believe they no longer send completely misleading letters like that having been pulled up on that fact that the majority of it was lies.

    No.. really,... any source what so ever that proves they have any admissible evidence gathered from 'detector vans'...

    Search what? I asked you for a source for your statement, that's all the searching that is required.

    Yeaaaah... the way 'facts' usually work is that they are false until someone proves them as a 'fact'.

    Especially so when you were the first to mention said 'fact'.

    So again, I ask you; Please provide a single source showing that evidence gathered from a detector van was admissible.

    Yeh i dont agree with their letters.
    I was apparently 'under investigation' like others on this thread just because i plain forgot to reply to their first letter because they sent it like the first week of uni and i had/have a million other things to remember.
    I replied now on their website (it's actually hard to find the link to actually reply with idk if that's intentional or not :/) saying i didnt need one cos i dont but thanks BBC for the cardiac arrest you nearly gave me

    You actually don't need to reply at all, there is no legal requirement to inform them that you don't need a licence and by replying you're just confirming your contact details so they can send more personalised harassment.
