I read through the existing threads about sharing a folder twice etc. and in my case a particular movie was being uploaded multiple times by random users to the point that sometimes most if not all of my 10 upload slots would be that same file and over half of the ones in the queue were that file too.  I have since deleted that movie and can't remember what its title was but it was an early 90s movie so it wasn't one that would be in high demand like a new release would be.  I am on 3.53, don't have any folders shared twice, don't use open-nap, never saw the same user name twice, and since I deleted that file it hasn't happened again.  Has anyone else seen this type of "upload flooding" before?

nearly two years ago now.. there were cases where the ques where being hogged up by ppl after some common some not so common names.. it was a tatic being tested on WinMX at the time.. the files never started always timed out and it was only mp3 files at the time.. Now thats not to say that I dont investigate any strange activity like this and would be happy to do so also with this.. if you wouldnt mind im going to send you a pm to get more info..

then we'll see what we can figure out..

for some reason it won't let me PM you back but the movie was City of Angels (my sister and her boyfriend helped me remember).  The file name at the time it happened was simply  "city of angels.avi" but I don't remember if I renamed it after downloading as I usually remove prefixes such as "[movie]" from the files.

I have attached an image of the personal message screen, hopefully someone can tell me which of the images I am supposed to type the letters from for future reference.

It started happening about a month ago IIRC.  Thank you for your help so far.
