[citation][nom]schnitter[/nom]I had BitTorrent and uTorrent installed to add the "important" to one and the "get later" on the other.Since both are the same, as soon as I saw BitTorrent throw ads, I downloaded a uTorrent installer before it got infested with ads too and removed BitTorrent.I have since, copied uTorrent ad-free installer in 4 different locations and will never update as long as ads are there.[/citation]
Yeah, because these guys should all work for free making, testing and debugging this software? Ha ha FUCK EM!
A better way would be to make the ads "opt-in." Maybe have several types available for selection. Explain to people why they might want the ads (e.g. to hear a new artist, or learn of a new utility, etc) and then let them choose; but the default must be no ads.
I might want to hear some new music, or grab a game demo or DLC, but I don't need or want credit offers or restaurant coupons, all my body parts are the right size, and I have no interest in "dating" sites or seeing teens with farm animals.
Doesn't it seem pointless to put sponsored ads on a program primarily supported by those who are hell bent on not paying for the things they're downloading? I understand torrent programs are used by more than just pirates and that it's applications span further than simply stealing content but you'd be stupid to say that it's not it's primary use.
So again, why would you advertise (most likely) paid services on a program used to not pay for services and items?
Hey guys, if you want to stop those new commercial ads on the newest version of utorrent , than you can do so during the installation of the utorrent. If you have utorrent already installed than you need to uninstall with an unistaller like revouninstaller.comto make sure that you remove it from your registry as well. And than while installing the utorrent you will see an option where it says something like: put or make an exception on windows firewall , make sure you uncheck that box and you will now not see any ads on utorrent again.
Hope this helps.
