I get it, freenet is not a worldwide community (openet), it's a bunch of 
private nets (darknets). Instead of growing to be huge like 0.5, 0.7 is 
inherently made to be small, unless you want to advertise on IRC. For now, 
my 'advertised on IRC' machine, is used for testing purposes only. Once 
things are running I remove all of my connections and build my own darknet 
of people I know and we use it as a private place to meet.
