Hi,
In order to avoid fake files could be very useful to give a vote or an opinion on files that are downloaded pointing to other users if the file is a fake.
This feature is also present in other P2P programs like Shareaza and Emule.
I think it is a very useful option.
Thank you.
Thanks for the work done to date.
Best regards.

    I agree. A voting system with optional comments would be nice.

    The best way, in my opinion, is the one used in Shareaza.
    We must give the possibility to delete a fake file using the option "ghost file".
    In this way, the hash of the file remains in memory and will continue to be reported to other users as a fake file when they search it.

    You should take care that there is no way to poison the original files/good matches. Spammers could provide lists with negative votes to good files.
