I sue various P2P programs, should I patch SP2?

Hello P2P Supporter,

If you installed Windows XP SP2, then Microsoft has severly limited the rate
at which connections can be made on your computer. Where you used to be able
to establish hundreds of connections in a short period of time, you may now
only establish connection to 10 peers. Any more than 10 connections in often
10+ seconds (this depends on the latency of the connecting party) will cause
new connections to become throttled and eventually denied all together.

This has serious damaging effects to eMule+, the eDonkey Network, and P2P as
a whole. It means a slower network and eventually fewer search results. It
means connections fail more frequently and losing your spot in someone's
queue. It also provides a means for disruptive users or music industry thugs
to sabotage P2P networks by preventing connection opportunity through SYN
attacks.

This also effects your web browser and other internet applications. If you
ever notice slow browsing, broken images, or ignored page requests while you
have eMule running... now you know why!

You can tell if this new "speed limit" is effecting you by viewing your
System Event messages (Right-Click "My Computer > Manage > System Tools >
Event Viewer > System"). You will see yellow-triangle Warning events with
"Tcpip" as the Source. Double-Clicking on one of these events will display
the following message.

No, you should sue Microsoft. They're the ones that have caused your
connection to slow down.
