Girls Aren't Into BitTorrent or The Pirate Bay

A new study found that, of the 75,000 Pirate Bay users polled, only 5% were women. Factoring in the standard 3% - 5% margin of error for most online polls....that number shrinks even more. big grin

The Cybernorms research group at Sweden’s Lund University partnered with The Pirate Bay earlier this year to carry out the largest survey among file-sharers in history. 75,000 people from all over the world participated in the study, and today the researchers revealed some of the initial results. Girls don’t fancy The Pirate Bay, most pirates download movies, and they are increasingly worried about their anonymity.
