Suicide? So the fact that gaim has 1.5 in their downloads section when they have 2.0 beta 3 out is suicide? The fact that some Linux distros still use the 2.4 kernel is suicide? Funny how they're all still here and quite popular.... Linking to 0.7 is suicide. New people come, download it, find there's nothing there, and leave. And don't try again later. I understand that there are good reasons behind developing the darknet....but for most users looking at freenet, they're looking for an opennet. And they're looking for a network up and running. They're not expecting something that's just barely starting.
