what is up with the people that have files to share,but sit there with 15 in que and 0 of 0 available ? almost as bad as having fake files
It is worse. The 0-slot hack of winMX is a leech tool. It is not used by people who share files but by people who sell files, who demand some form of barter 'payment' in return for a 'trade'.
I have such a leech regularly trying to download from me, but he can't get past LeecHammer as that is the only program I know that can filter out those who use the 0-slot hack. He was downloading from others, but had 0 uploads going, and 87 waiting in his queue. And he had the audacity to use the nick "Share_or_Leave" !!!!!
