You mean to create a new Forum I assume; if so, perhaps two would be better. One for free software another for paid???

If you have "admin" vBulletin privileges, you can create the new forum section, and move this thread there. Make it a sticky, so it's in a central location.

Bit torrents are notorious for viruses and malware -- I NEVER recommend it.
