Also a fine option in some cases. The goal is to figure out what's going
on their heads -- they probably don't actually care much, and they just
want some way to make this stuff not take much of their time. For example,
several Tor exit nodes at universities I've talked to know the people
who answer the abuse complaints, and they have an informal deal where
they just pass the abuse complaints on the Tor operators, who process
them as needed (in most cases this means ignoring them).

Technically speaking, this isn't quite true. Bittorrent can run on
whatever port the tracker and/or clients pick.

(Most of the Internet is slowly moving to port 80, as corporate and
government firewalls start to push people to put all their traffic there.)
