I agree it's a terrible waste -- but, I say, tough luck. Surely the senders will throttle back when they start seeing some of their packets not being acknowledged. (Like I said, we should avoid this situation as much as possible, but ultimately the user has to be in control. The network, selfish as this might sound, comes second!) _______________________________________________ Support mailing list Support@freenetproject.org http://news.gmane.org/gmane.network.freenet.support Unsubscribe at http://emu.freenetproject.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/support Or mailto:support-requ...@freenetproject.org?subject=unsubscribe
