Default Older GTK-Gnutella versions, should they be trusted?

Following on from my side-topic here http://www.gnutellaforums.com/gtk-gn...ault-port.html (excluding 2nd half of post #1 & post #2.)

This host in question connects & browses at same time or simply only to browse. I did have this particular host banned & even on the hostiles for a short period of time. Since it is a 24/7 host, it seemed like a valuable UP on one hand. Yet on the other, it behaves like a suspicious BOT.

Should all GTK-Gnutella versions of 2007 builds not be trusted?

That's a very old version, but some people do like to use older versions of p2p clients. Though my understanding is that later GTK versions will black list them (or so I thought, but my GTK connected to a few of the 2007 builds.) But obviously other p2p clients don't blacklist them, which is why I ask my question, should it be trusted?
I am also aware some companies that use bots often use older version p2p clients.
