This feature is necessary because private sites often ban good clients with no reason. If they weren't doing that the feature won't be needed in the first place.
On the other hand, Pete, why would such a 'feature' be available in a program that is banned because of that particular feature and the following ban on several private trackers?
They surely have their reasons - such as sending false data to the tracker, or, the core problem, manipulating the peer-ID.
If there is a problem with the program itself, why having such a 'feature' than fixing actual the issue of sending false data?
I'd gladly use it on various trackers (I'm more a public-guy though, thus I could care less), yet still I cannot find an answer, or ask *the* proper question.
I really admire Tixati for its usability and its many possibilities to modify several things (e.g. removing and adding trackers automatically, as I am a lazy human being). But it is that one 'feature' and the issue of sending false data indeed (a Tixati-user is shown as a peer with 0,4%, yet uploading 100% to me, meaning that only the currently downloading piece(s) is/are regarded as available at the Tixati-user's side).
Besides, why is Tixati using a specialized peer-ID different to known encoding styles (such as the Azureus-style)?
