The issue with my university was that P2P applications do not let anybody 
control who connects to your computer. Each person has to be responsible for 
connections being made to the machine. Clearly F2F network is *not* a subset of 
P2P under that light. So many users will (rightly) call you an idiot (since we 
were not discussing peers and friends, but P2P and F2F).
