Sam hit that nail squarely on the head. Users do a search, winmx returns search results from ALL the networks and servers that give results. However, many users on opennap will connect to many differant networks (which increases search results thus increasing your chances of finding what your looking for) as a result, you will see search results that are actually duplicates from the differant networks. Now, an old naphead who's used opennap for years knows this and will not only look at the filenames, they will ALSO pay attention to the user names as well. Why? beacuse they know that some people can get upset and perhaps even mad when a user ques the same file multiple times from differant networks. Some will simply add you to their ignore list as this is considered quite rude behaviour! After all, how many copies of the same file do you really NEED anyway? I've come to realize that this common misunderstanding can actually be blamed on winmx! The way the winmx network handles searches and downloads and the multi-sourcing has made it SO easy for the users to simply click on a file and forget it (they dont end up with multiple copies or anything like that) has sort of "conditioned" the users to never have a reason to ever worry about or even pay attention to the source! Winmx does all the work for them in this respect. Opennap servers however operate in a differant manner and one must learn the proper ettiquite expected. Is there a little more work involved? Hell yes! Is it worth it? That is a question that each user must answer for themselves. For the ability to download rare or hard to find files, I personally feel that its worth it. If you however dont want to take the time to learn opennap ettiquitte and simply wish to download the latest flo rida, taylor swift or kanye west, I'd just stick with wpn and dont bother with opennap. I hope this information helps someone!
