I knew a guy high enough up at Warner Brothers to have a 1-letter email address. He relayed to me once how he had personally taken down Akamai for a day by using a low-cost alternative to host Moesha.

He relayed to me that the safest place in the world to torrent was Time Warner Cable in Los Angeles because they never responded to a single IP request. Not because they were big on digital freedom but because they were so hopelessly disorganized that they had no actual way to determine who was on what IP address at any point other than "now."
