Among p2p or torrenting communities: Derogatory term for a person or network of the bottom feeding classes. One that habitually takes the technical work of others and attempts to pass it off as their own without proper attribution.

Scabs are typically childish, petulant and feeble minded in character, often engaging in primitive but overt "chest beating" behaviour in an attempt to prove they've got a gigantic e-penis and are untouchable. In reality they are stunted specimens, each with a Napolean complex in that much like the emperor himself, they use forceful tactics while their girlfriends are cheating on them.
Person A: Have you heard of this new tracker? I've heard it's pretty good.
Person B: Yeh I wouldn't join if I were you, it's run by a bunch of filthy scabs.
