    im against blocking users, its against the p2p ideia, but i think we should make a M.F.L. ( Mother Fucker List) and list all the mother fuckers who dont rename/delete their fake files and also name all users who are the source of them, maybe that way we can contain fakes (wich is virtually impossible&#33 but at least we would piss them off...



    dunno if its a bad idea...

    let the discussion begin

    If we tried, it wouldn't work effectively. There will be problems and mistakes, which is just too much to do just to piss off a small group of fake sharers.

    Unworkable and impractical.Usernames in kazaa are not unique.

    learn to spot the fakes and use avi preview to test the ones you do start
    its not hard really if you learn how to spot fakes. this is totally not an
    issue to me. there a number of things you can do to spot fakes.

    he says the list then changes his user name stright away simple

    and what about defaultuser??? there probaly 5 million people who use that we name 1 of them and that means 5 million people suffer

    This is so true. I can't explain how valuable Avi Preview is, though I wonder why their are still people complaining about fake movies on the boards. Are people that desperate for posts?

    Since when are ips unique?

    defaultuser@kazaa with ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx has matrix reloaded i have 4/5 main software/movies sharers ips wich are on fixed ip (probably t1) and they only have fakes, my fake list droped 95% when i download something just by ignoring the threads were they are present, if one of the sharer' s is in my MFL i dont downlad i look for a thread where any of those MF are not and do it... its been working for me!

    to jibbler:

    Uh, yeah, well, you can't blacklist users because they share a fake file. You'll end up blacklisting nearly every user. Kazaa has nearly reached its limitations. In fact, the decentralize server system is probably the only thing keeping it going. In my opinion, there are far better filesharing formats, but soon fakes will be a problem on every network. There is little we can do regarding fake files, you just have to live with them.

    Constructive enough for you?

    "you can't blacklist users because they share a fake file"

    not 1 fake file, but some have ALL fakes files!

    browse user files once, see how many files there are, 345 same sized files of different movies???

    matrix reloaded size 745.123kb
    lord of the... size 745.123kb
    Jibbler the postman size 745.123kb

    and so on...

    mmmmmmh, id guess they were all fakes.
    and ive only found 4 users like this. not 2/3 million and i repeat when they are on a thread i dont download from them.

    90% of all fakes can be discovered before downloading just by hovering over the file name in the search window and reading the description in the box that pops up. Usually the file name does not match the listed name (i.e. the search and file may be the Matrix Reloaded but the file name in the pop-up box may say Oceans 11). Dead give away "Fake".

    The description in the pop-up box usually also does not match. That file that everybody downloads that thinking it is the real but is "Porn" usually has the word "Marta" and sometimes "Karlson" in the description at the bottom of the box. Besides that file is always 727,529 Kb without exception.

    Finally click on the (+) sign and expand the listing. Usually there is one good person who has downloaded the file but corrects the name and leaves it so that others don't make that mistake.

    Finally as stated above use the AVI preview as soon as possible to verify the file.

    Whining about the fakes isn't going to make the problem go away, in fact I seriously doubt that problem can be eliminated. But you the user can minimize the damage just by using a little precaution before downloading. Also use the "Verifieds"
