I always found that hilarious!
Every torrent or download program has filters available, but people don't use them!
I set up an inclusion list(meaning anything not on it is excluded) for every search type available. If the file didn't meet the criteria, it wasn't shown. Part of this was filetype, size minimum, quality, and a few others.
I've used all these programs without having an active antivirus at one point or another and have never had an issue when using this method.
