    I always got a kick out of it when people posted threads who actually used this awful site. Good riddance!

    Why is it crappy? I have downloaded many songs off Limewire, virus-free.

    its such a shady program
    you have no idea what you could be downloading.
    it could be a virus in disguise.
    it could be a porn video in disguise. (ya have you seen what pops up when you search)
    it could be anything in disguise.
    you dont even know if it is the song you want (what with their being lots of songs named the same and limewire not being too smart)
    you dont even know the quality either.
    its sick and stupid.

    unless of course it was updated and since i dont use it i wouldnt know if it improved.

    It was updated and after some time you get to separate the songs off the other things, really

    Yeah LimeWire sucks. It randomly slows down your computer like crazy, even if you just install it and don't open it, and all of the downloads seems suspicious and shady.

    I use a thing called common sense and virus protection. Kaspersky caught anything back in my dumb days..so is Frostwire related in this case? Since they're reallllly similar and all.
