File priority design error?


Recommended Posts

Because that's micromanaging of the swarm which causes long-term widespread harm.

Selective downloading is beyond the scope of the protocol because of the fact that pieces cross files.

Bittorrent was never designed to, nor was it intended to, handle files separately like that.

The use of priorities in a widespread manner is what is causing the harm to swarms, not anything else.
