First of all I'm currently sharing 872 files... a mix of movies, mp3s software, ebooks, bla bla bla...
Lately, I've been getting users IM me in the midst of a download, saying, "What are you, crazy? No sharing = No Downloads." That's the nicest one I've received. I've gotten chewed out by quite a few people in various languages.
One night, a user said, "F*** off, you leech!!" and I wrote back, informing this person of how many files I'm sharing. Then I noticed that my AutoSearchMore was going at the time and turnt it off. I told this lovely individual I feel the same way about leechers and to check it again. They showed up, and I continued my DL.
Sooooo... I guess my tip would be:
Before you rip someone a new one for leeching, check to make sure that they're really leeching. They could have the AutoSearchMore running.
Anyone else have this happen to them?
