Torrents are not anonymouse, in fact many company's try to track down torrent downloaders that download copy written matiraial.

Torrents are harder to shut down than websites but you are not anonymouse when you download from them. You are actualy exposing your self to everyone else that is downloading/uploading on the torrent.

More anonymous. (at least compared to providing an email address to an individual, and profiling your interests by subscribing) Additionally, many trackers are private, have encryption and who uses torrents without Peer Guardian these days? So, torrents are significantly more anonymous.

Now, before you say it, yes, you can create a disposable account to use for a mailing list, but that means remembering to use it to check for that email. (Not as much of an issue with a client, but still)

Don't get me wrong. I like your idea. I just know there are always people who don't sign up to things like this, and torrents are an alternative for those jittery folks. ;)

In fact, news servers are another. Most people have news access through their ISP, or can find access through free news servers posted on the net (anonymous) and may have binary newsgroups where the user could download the adscan rar/zip files.

Not that it matters this time (no Harbor Freight locations near me), but I signed up about a week ago, and didn't get an email with the harbor freight adscan yet. Should I try signing up again?

OK, I double checked the logs and it looks like only around 20 people got the harbor freight email. I made some fixes and have sent out the harbor freight email agian.

Should be all working now for when we get the important ads. Let me know if you get it this time around.

Did you already resend the email? I haven't gotten anything yet.
Edit: Never mind, I just got it. Thanks!

did you sign up at http://www.bfemails.com/? and when did you sign up? You might have signed up after the emails were sent out.
