Right or wrong, depending from who's pespective you look at it from and depending upon all the issues that are involved that we people who have never actually worked on winmx will never know for sure, I believe that the hackers have won atleast a tactical victory over the winmx network. You may still get some postitive results for the "basic" stuff you are looking for, but the people who had the real gems for files that your were looking for are gone. The winmx network itself is a ghost town or usually just jibberish coming back as results. Not all the time, as even the hackers can get tired of trying to tie up the network all day and all night with their hacks, but a fair amount of the time. Winmx will never be like it once was and that is a real shame. But that fight is between the owner and the people who once worked for him. You would think that seeing the demise of the network, after all the time and effort put into creating it, that they would find some way of coming together amicably, but that is out of everyones hands except those involved.
