like i said hobo,
i get them all the time. this was the one from saturday. its not every day i get them, but they arent rare in my experience.
this one was just happenstance. after id finished diner i thought id check my connections seeing as id been busy focusing on checking uploads out for the other posts screenshots, i didnt check them before starting the session
this is another one id saved for another post, he was a good one, hundreds of files, all the same size
this is why i was quizzing you about force ultrapeer the other day.
why would somebody be an ultrapeer if they just want to share spam, the two are incongruous, being a spammmer to bugger the system, and being an ultrapeer to make the system work better????
it just seems to me if i wanted to bugger up the system, and i knew, or could pay people that do know how the system works, i wouldnt be farting around with a few spam files on one computer in my garage. i think somebody has done the math on how much it costs to go to court to keep trying to close down the gnutella network and realised there may be a more cost effective way to beat p2p.
i dont know what super powers ultrapeers have, but it seems they control the system, so in dumb speak, if i can get lots of computers, and get lots of them to be ultrapeers, then get them to direct connect to thier mates that also only share spam, then i just leave enough slots open for fred to come along and start searching for something and all he gets is congrats messages, then that in part would explain the amount of grumbling from the masses weve been getting.
or i dont know, maybe theres something far simpler that ultrapeers can do to mess up thier little part of the network and make spam the winner in all searches????
whatever the real truth is, thats the simples of my conspiracy theory, remove spammers from your ultrapeer connections
EDIT: i just noticed, i did check my connections before starting, see the first five ips then the search for ' rubbish ' i do that to see what sort of searches im getting, ie; no rubbish files returned equals non spammy hosts.
then again at the end, i search for connections as a spacer, then the five hosts from my connections tab are listed.
