    See:
    http://www.spywareinfo.com/articles/p2p/

    The following extract puts the case for not using KazaaLite and
    GroksterLite:

    "You may think that by using these products, you are giving the proverbial
    finger to the makers of spyware-ridden software. I'm sorry to say, this is
    not true. You merely show them that their software is so popular that you
    will go to any lengths to use it. This tells them that it is safe to keep
    selling out their millions and millions of users to the parasitical spyware
    companies. It also lets them point to the size of their network when
    spyware companies come sniffing around. By using these products, cracked or
    not, you contribute to the problem of advertising spyware."

    Over to you.

  3. Sorry I didn't make myself clear. I don't think I'm doing anything to
    anybody. Just not receiving all the spycrap that goes along with Kazaa.
    Lite is clean and does the same job.
    Sorry bout that.

    <sigh>

    Go back and re-read the article (Message-ID:
    <7taVa.2513$>) you were f'upping to.

    Now read it again. And again. And AGAIN.

    Keep reading it until you finally get the point: It's not all about *you*.

    Given how often this question keeps popping up, maybe it should be added to
    the FAQ.
    Opinions ?
