if they bock all the Aussies from viewing porn, they can free up allot of bandwidth on porn sites and be able to load and watch em faster

It wasn't intended to support my argument in any way or form.
Awesomeness. Let's go on then.
Firstly, yes Ubuntu does use it. Thenagain, UBUNTU IS FINANCIALLY BACKED UP BY A CORPORATION (by Canonical inc. to be specific), so of course they have the funds to do so. And I think saying most OSS is hosted in sourceforge is a little over-generalized - and even they can't handle even close to all the OSS out there. There's no way in heck SF could be able of hosting all the OSS that's been previously handled by Torrents.
EDIT: Also, if I recall correctly there was a notice displayed on Ubuntu website asking users to use torrents rather than the HTTP server in order to reduce stress (assuming financial) on Ubuntu supporters.
but seriously now it seems to be the only way to stop P2P piracy, even if it affects the legal uses ,
but i doubt it will work very effectively and the ISPs will just tell the government to try another method and it will be the last we will hear about it
