From one of the world’s largest bittorrent trackers, The Pirate Bay, comes a new uncensored image hosting service called BayImg.
bayimg.com is a place where you can host all your images. We do not censor them. We believe in freedom of speech, it’s of utter importance to us. As long as your pictures are legal they will be hosted here, but we reserve the right to remove images due to technical reasons though. If something crashes here, you better have a backup yourself – hopefully that won’t happen. Usually we know what we’re doing.
BayImg lets you upload images (no registration) in about 140 different formats. There’s even support for .RAR and .ZIP-archives. (It automatically creates an album-address for all the pictures inside of uploaded archives.)
A removal code (which you enter when uploading images) lets you delete the images in the future.
Settings allows you to set the amount of images to display per page and there’s an option to exclude offensive material.

I first heard about BitTorrents on Linux sites. They use the network to distribute Linux operating systems. Also game updates were frequently distributed in this way, to limit the load on their servers and improve the availability of large data files.
But like many other P2P systems, the bittorrent networks got infested with pirated content and torrents got a bad reputation. Popular sites like The Pirate Bay and Mininova (both ranking in the top 500 Traffic Rank) offer trackers for loads of pirated content and their traffic is increasing steadily according to Alexa.com.
But, fortunately legal BitTorrents sites are also increasing.
NewTeeVee has an article rounding up 10 sites where you can get free and legal torrents.
You’ll find sites offering music, movies, games and more so check it out! (Also check the comments where you’ll find more sites, i.e. Jamendo with 5000+ free & legal music torrents).
