I'm sure this question has been asked before, but i'll ask it again mainly for my own personal satisfaction.
Why do people offer up *untrue* files?
This is supposed to be a peer to peer filesharing network, where you would think people would help one another out by deleting bad files or naming files correctly, but at least 50% of video files what you try to download are never what they say they are.
Is it that these people who offer these files are making their stance against *piracy* by frustrating kazaa users.
Or is it some little geek who sits in the corner and giggles when someone tries to download a new film only to discover its a bad copy of Pretty Woman or some such dross.
Maybe there should be a geek forum/network where these people could go and send files to one another all day, that would be cool.
I personally have enough problems with finding i have a virus from some file i have downloaded without wasting my time trying to find some episode of Sex in the city for my girlfriend and leaving it downloading, only to later find i've downloaded a program off the bloody home decorating network.
For me, Kazaa was a great find for music, we have obtained lots of rare stuff from here and good quality songs that we had forgotten; filmwise, it's a crapshoot, maybe downloaded 3 good quality films that have actually worked, best quality one being LOTR The Two towers.
I suppose in the end i shouldn't whine really, after all, it's free
