At the same time since these P2P softares are not exactly what we call "Well Made" always, they are easy to hack and people abuse that tremendously. A good example of is Fake Sharers in Direct Connect. They make Direct Connect say that you have a 100GB share or whatever and when someone looks in your file list, you have nothing. Samething with Kazaa, it has become a porn ground. People don't really use it for music anymore. If Napster stayed alive, to be honest I think it wouldn't be as bad. Then the rest of these softwares would be based on Music Only (which is highly arguable), but thats what I think. This would help music, as well as games and softwares and such only available of off of IRC, NewsGroups, & Websites. It would also make it harder for people to get roms and allow more new games and softwares to be made in the future. After Kazaa was made, over 10,000 internet softwares, games, etc, were discontinued or should I say everyone stopped working on them because they had to rewrite all of the codes to make it so people can't post it on the net or something.

a simple way to get rid of the fake sharers in the dc hub would be to only allow peeps using dc++. i know of many hubs that have done this for the reason that dc++ is difficult to hack or something...at least, that is what i have heard.
Well believe it or not, DC++ has already been hacked since the source code for it is public. I myself did a lot of research on fake sharers and all of the major clients they use and one of them is a exact hacked version of DC++. I won't release the name since that will just provoke other people, however some sources say all of these fake sharers contain a backdoor hack that the maker of these fake sharers can reformated or do something even worse with all the people using his fake sharing clients.
So it could be maybe be the end for fake sharers.
However about 10% of all hubs users are fake sharers too or make their share say 100GB when they really have 50GB. So its not exactly always based on if that person is just not sharing anything at all.
