Why torrent files the normal way when you can become anonymous by
torrenting small chunks of huge numbers of files instead? I'm sure ISPs and
prosecutors will understand!

Even if they start mentioning this little detail, their implementation
would still be horribly broken: ECB mode without authentication, no RSA
padding, poor random numbers, and code like this:

        raise ImportError()
        from Crypto.Random.random import StrongRandom
    except ImportError:
        from random import Random as StrongRandom

The list goes on:

Tribler is the Telegram of torrent clients. Stay far away from it.
