    I used to like it, but my enthusiasm has waned recently.

    If you want multi-network connectivity, then shareaza is your boy.

    Since you posted this in the BitTorrents section, I guess you're using it for downloading torrent files. I imagine that if that's all you want to do with it, then there are better torrent clients around

    But the shareaza interface is nice, and like I said, if you want to connect to multiple networks, it's pretty good.

    I heard it is banned because is saves the .torrent files (which have the users passkey in it) in a public folder so anyone could get ahold of it, connect to the tracker and download without being a member of the site.

    If you are running Windows and only want a bittorrent cilent then the easiest to use and on resources is uTorrent. If you search through the threads you should find some more info about different cilents as well.
