So a while back one of our senior members posted this link:
I beg a thousand pardons from the original poster, feel free to claim your props.
It's a pretty cool link, it can serve a bunch of purposes. The scary part is I have no idea who runs it.

So when you are logged into your VPN (or not) and visit this page you get a list of all the P2P traffic related to that IP for the last week including the titles and the category. The last IP I had was trafficking child porn a day or two ago and flagged it as such. Needless to say I dropped that IP like a hot potato.

So on a serious note there is a company "CentralSquare" that maintains records including what's on the above link and sells them on a subscription basis to all branches of law enforcement. I am not here to sell you a VPN but just pointing out it's not a bad idea to have one. If you posses or traffic kiddie pron you are going to die a thousand gruesome deaths and burn for eternity in hell not to mention I hope you get caught so that's not my point.

On a lighter note the above URL is also a good resource to make sure the IP that your provider has assigned you (and easily traced) is clean. Mistakes do happen and just proves it's a good reason to understand and utilize the "Kill Switch" built into most VPN software.
EDIT:
So I ran across quite a few resources worth taking a look at if you care to know more.
A good unbiased comparison of VPN providers:

Some online sites that insure not only that your system isn't revealing info from the VPN client but some will check your torrent client for security as well:

Have fun and be safe!
