    One interesting thing I've noticed is that people lie, face to face, about whether or how much they're sharing.  I've checked on it.
    That could be very true.. but heres another consideration, alot of people (such as myself) post under one name and share under another.

    Its like this, I like using regular Kazaa. I like the idea of people knowing who I am, that these are my files, because when I registered every info I gave them was fake. All they can do is ban me, which proved to napster pointless, cuz I can just get a new account. I also have ad-aware, and cracked their little spyware, no ads, nothing. I did this long ago, had I known a year or two back, I would have switched.
    Its certainly your right to do what you want.. but why not take advantage of all the add-on tools not available in the original version? No matter what version you use people are still going to see your files.. you have the option of showing your media file list (or not showing it) I too have several hundred "unique" files because I obtain them from sources other than p2p programs, from sources that most people dont have access to. They see 'em because they're being uploaded by the hundreds each day.

    I have to tell you that it used to royally piss me off when I would get up in the morning and find that literally several hundred files where uploaded to users that shared no files..not ONE.
    were the people you checked still uploading from you? I have never been able to browse a users files unless they were either uploding or downloading from me at the time. I leave my connection open while I&#39;m asleep as well, and found that i couldn&#39;t browse the files of completed upload users. Is it the same for everyone, or is this a problem with my version?
    Sorry RP.. I posted alot more information in my reply to you than I normally would..this was done for the benifit of those that never used that program,so they could get an idea of how it works..and how I came to the conclusion that people were taking files (alot of them) and not sharing any. [/b][/quote]
    NP Fatal Error. I would still like an answer from someone though. Can anyone bowse a users files on K-lite without them being connected to you?( upload or downloading at the time) I really think this causes confusion when people try to browse files

    I dont think this is possible without you being connected to them. I dont think you can do this if your not sharing the same Supernode either... Not positive here. oooh Paul..

    File sharing is good Karma.............The only problem with thinking that..... Is what if Karma is bullshit?.........the only problem with thinking that..........Is What if Karma is real?............and so on.......and so on....just let your mind rest and still the littel inner monkey of yours child ......1

    If you have the means to share than do it.
    If you dont have the means, dont worry about it.
    It&#39;s simple.

    Most things are(simple) We have a choices to make.
    Make the right ones in life.
    I share because I am thankful for the P2P community,and the files they provide.
    I mean damn people dont you love the freaking fact that you have all this for free&#33;
    I figure it this way. I share because I want files from other users,and they want them from me.
    What&#39;s more simple than that.

    Im not going to be a hyprocrite and say Lets Share than decide to cut off someone elses download,because there not Sharing.

    Besides If your like me .....I bet you you would rather just masturbate or take out the trash,or anything else than waste your time arguing with a selfish person whos dead set on being right


    Peace brotherdoobie

    just to add my 2 cents...

    I use my girlfriends broadband (NTL) connection (as I am now) and I leave it on as long as she will put up with...&#33; I also have my own dial-up connection, but as you can appreciate I don&#39;t have to use it much. But use it I do, and I use Kazaa (lite) on that too.

    On this comp, I am sharing about 4gb of stuff. I don&#39;t really know how much that is in the long run, but I thought it would be okay... I mean, one of them is a 1.4gb version of LOTR, the Fellowship screener - maybe that isn&#39;t worth having on there as others are about and no-one has ever tried for mine, and if they did I would be the only one with it... Other stuff I share includes about 10 music videos (mostly Muse), one Southpark, 4 Simpsons, the UK ITV Digital Al & Monkey adverts, 50 (320mb) mp3&#39;s - some music, some spoken word comedy) and some applications (a few DVD rippers, utilities & such like).

    What does anyone think of that? I mean, is that respectable? The thing is, I only made this PC with a 20gb HDD - and it soon fills up&#33;

    When I am using my Dial-up, I share about 50 mb of stuff - some videos, some mp3&#39;s and a few essentials (winzip serial keygen, etc) - half populars and half rare stuff that I want to spread. I figure that that is not too unreasonable - I hope&#33;

    It does get a bit annoying when, using original Kazaa (on dial-up), I would get no or 0.25k D/L&#39;s but my uploads would always get 4-7kb/s of my bandwidth... most users seem to share though. I have only ever cancelled people that don&#39;t have any shared files. Maybe if you are on a 56k connection, it is an idea only to share small files, but a fair amount of them.

    The other business about being unlawful I&#39;ve never really thought about before - although I am a bit now. The mp3&#39;s I&#39;m not too bothered about, but stuff like Cracked apps and keygens, along with DivX&#39;s - what is the legal standing / chance of a bollocking?&#33;

    later all

    Unless individual companies want to make an example of someone then I personally believe there&#39;s little chance of legal trouble. At most you would probaly recieve a letter telling you to remove the offending article. The one to watch is your ISP as they have the power to disconnect or limit your service. i.e. block the ports that filesharing apps connect on or disconnect your service entirely. I dont worry too much&#33;
