mIRC has way more potential than what people use it for that is an easy given. I think the biggest problem is people are very uneducated on how it works. Heck many of the people "sharing files" are simply clicking and leeching the don't understand the consequences of accepting every file that they can get their hands on. Furthermore many don't even own a virus scanner mudding up the whole situation. I don't know the point of the ranting and raving but that is my deal.
