i use Kazaa and whenver somebody with a ( 0 ) participation level tries to download my files i disconnect them. and this isn't an isolated incident. normally about half of the people who try to get my music/porn have never shared a file while they had kazaa.

anybody else do this? if not you may want to consider it to keep the selfish people in check.

BTW i have dialup so it's not like my internet performance isn't affected by sharing. you do it anyway because that's why programs like Kazaa work.

Yes, i disconnect them and I also send them a message to tell them why.

I wish you could just not allow people that don't share to download your files.

I think Napster had that option.

You always disconnect them? I sometimes do. But isn't it true that the lower your participation level, the slower your file transfer process is? I left my computer on for a weekend and now my participation level is 969 and when I download stuff it FLIES baby. I think the levels go from 0-1000.

I cut 'em off every single time. Screw 'em! I've gotten quite a few angry messages from those people but I just ignore 'em. Sharing is what makes the programs so great. If ya don't wanna share then too fucking bad.

I hide my files so they aren't available to others.

I have c:mp3
ew that everything dumps into. Once it's complete, it goes to c:mp3.

Call me stingy, but I want to use their stuff, they can't use mine.

I allow anyone to download...I just leave my home comp on (the music industry makes too much money IMO anyways) So my rating always stays @ 1000--which gives me priority over other people during my download...

I always share with people unless it is a huge file and I know it is going to hurt my performance for a long time. I try to keep 5mb+ files out of my sharing folder so I don't have to cutt anyone off.

I have no idea what this participation thing is...Ill have to look.

I dont leave kazaa on when Im not using it, however, I have never disconnected anyone either. With a cable modem, you have a upload cap, so I know they arent going to be the bottleneck for my downloads.
