Why you change the description about KaZaA? :angry:

In the older description you alert about the third party programs and advertisement included in it.
<_<
In the actual there is no word about that. :(

KaZaA, Grokster, E-mesh, and other similar programs have very invasive advertisement agents included.

I agree, the description should say even about the spyware the ads and all the other applications automaticly installed with KaZaA

In past posts subjects similar to this have been discussed, and it all is basically the same, people come to oldversion.com (http://www.oldversion.com) to find apps they once used, and prefer. This is really not a site to download new apps, or to discover a new app, but discoverys can happen but its not the goal. those experiences are already handled well on many sites such as tucows or c|net or Zdnet.

Oldversion.com (http://www.oldversion.com) is here to archive programs. Not primarily to be a place to find which apps have spyware, those subjects are handled well at many others places already. If there are notes on certain software titles containing spyware, thats a bonus to the site & user, but also takes time to find out all this information for hundreds of programs.

Descriptions, requirements, history&#39;s, bug reports are all good learning and reading, but thats not the goal of this site. Archiving older apps people enjoyed and preferred using. And those older apps which lack spyware and ads can be found here as well. Another reason is to archive older files that were released before all the spyware and ads were implimented.

If you see an app on Oldversion.com (http://www.oldversion.com), and are wondering if it contains spyware, and the info is lacking in the description, then try looking on those sites which collect this sort of data. One site can not do it all for you. Sometimes, the finding out of information is left up to the users.

The description has not been changed. Please refrain from unfounded accusations.

It states (and has stated for many months): "Kazaa Media Desktop includes additional applications bundled with the software&#39;s installer file. Third-party applications bundled with this download may record your surfing habits, deliver advertising, collect private information, or modify your system settings."

(Can we stop talking about Kazaa&#39;s Description.) ,, this bubasaur is quite clearly a question, maybe we could stop talking about kazaas description if you didnt add a question, this is an invitation for someone to carry on with something that was quite clearly finished, both Igor and Locustfurnace had added to this topic plenty to clarify matters without you adding once again an unnecessary reply, i see through looking round the forums that you have a habit of it,

Ok.
As i just wrote in another thread about your one word replies, this applies to all threads. If you had noticed, the comment you made was towards Igor, who just so happens to be the Co-Owner of this board and the main site. Are you telling the owners they can not reply to any subject on their own board?
If you can not add content with you replies, don&#39;t reply. If you have nothing to add, don&#39;t add. If you want to reply to a thread, think about it, and make sure it has some substance, is relevant, and will serve all viewers of the board with something useful.
