    They are horrible and deserved to be banished, but they will still be here. So, you have to deal with them.

    They are an unfortunate fact of p2p life.
    I just hope the saying "Wot goes around,comes around" has some truth in it for these scumsuckers.

    Just use the avi preview to check it before you download the whole thing. I know how irritating it is, especially when you have a slow connection.

    I've never heard even a semi-reasonable explanation for why people do this (so I must assume that there isn't one), but I do wonder... not only is this VERY irritating to the people dl'ing from you, but how in the world do you find anything in your folder if everything is mislabeled? I mean, how long can you remember that the file titled "The Matrix Reloaded" is in fact "The Greatest Moments of Rob Schnieder" ( and thus an empty file)?

    Funny you mention this. I was on cough emule cough and was so happy to be getting reloaded. I figure after leaving it alone to dl, I would check out the movie to see the quality. Much to my suprise, I was not getting reloaded, but a screener of Joy Ride. I don't know why they got to do this to us, but I'd love to make 'em pay.

    The root of the problem is when the "file name" and the descriptiuon name are diffirent. If you look at the file name in the actual shared folder, it will be diff. than the file name in the kazaa program it self. So, when you are in the "My Kazaa lite" tab in the Kazaa prog., it will appear to be the correct file. I think I just confused myself
    Anyway I think some dumb bastard gets some freakish thrill out of screwing people over..

    I too fell for the Reloaded scam and got (part of) Joy Ride. All I can figure is that someone was so pissed of that they wasted their bandwidth dl'ing that piece of dreck in the first place that they retitled it and took revenge on the world...

    Isn't that the truth.
