    Cool

    Is there hope for Kazaa to be what it was about a year ago?
    I remember when there were almost 4,000,000 users, and I could download 600MB files in 2-3hours. Now im lucky to see 2,500,000 and it takes almost 1-2 day to download 600MB files.
    It seems to me like it could if more people would stop being so paranoid and share, and if everyone would delete there fake and non working files.
    It is true; everyone seems to be going to BitTorrent. I admit I have used Azureus and it works well, but it still is not what Kazaa used to be.

    Just wondering what others are thinking!

    I hate to so say it but, its primarily the users of Kazaa that suck. It's all the file sharing noobs. I had Bearshare for awhile and never got a fake file in probably 1 1/2 years of sharing there. Same with Soulseek which is where I get 100% of my music these days. Kazaa is just a haven for junk files, porn, and viruses. It should be taken offline for a year or so and maybe start fresh again.

    I think there is a flaw in the harshing method used in the fastTrack network that allows fakes.

    as for fakes, ok use verified files from sites like findhash.com and sharethefiles.com... and you will get a round this fake problems ... it is still the fastest download p2p network for all types of connections and specially for my dial up connection...

    @isamma - that helps, somewhat, unless they corrupt that file by seeding fakes sections. then, even with a sig2dat link, you'll still be fucked

    it doesn't matter much, since you can block a LARGE percentage of fakes by simply using protowall with the latest blacklist. but then again, like skizo said, the network is filled with all the noobs at which you may get a fucked up section from :\

    but in the long run, kazaa is still the best all-around client in terms of ease of use with good speed
