Since this is a discussion forum (Not Q&A) I feel free to just make this statement. I noticed quite a few people nagging about mIRCs file sharing/trading abilities on some servers/channels. Lets not kid ourselves, most of these files are copyrighted or otherwise illicit. If you want P2P file sharing, there are many programs to serve your needs. mIRC is about meeting people I doubt Khaled ever intended for it to be a conveyor of crooked content.

I don't know Khaled but I guarantee you he didn't create it to meet people. He did it to write the most elite irc client on the net, which he has done. PS. mIRC's IRC file sharing can only get as good as the stability of the network your on. Hence it's about as good as your going to get. It may not be the easiest to find what your looking for, but IRC is by far the safest and most elite way to send files.

I post this as a realist, nothing more.

This explains a lot! mIRC's file shariing abilities are about as technically advanced as the 20 year old FTP protocol, and have absolutely NO facets of any current P2P software, but hey.. it's ELITE!

Downloading off IRC (in the sense of xdcc/fserves or whatever) is probably the LEAST SAFEST WAY TO DOWNLOAD. Read the *$%&'ing topics of such channels, where do you think XDCCBOT-12125421 comes from?

I would love to live in your reality - would certainly beat mine where I have to work for a living!

IRC = Internet Relay Chat ... if it was designed for efficient file transfer, it would have been labelled IRFT !

Given there's far less chance every 'joeschmoke' is running off a compromised/exploited/stolen host, yes.
