Probably because it is Java based, and crap.

That's just imagination - I do not know that - and it "should" not happen.

2* the number of uses and the data-transfers to describe each segment everyone holds - is so big that the N^2 intercommunication problem just swamps everything. I'm drowning in data management overheads
3* my ISP hates my using torrents and is gapping me (that is - - throwing in service gaps after each torrent transfer to limit the delivered bandwidth - they see me as a hog so put me on a diet)
4* my hardware is useless (? 100Mbit/sec LAN to box with x2 AMD 3.8g cores and 2 gig ram)
