the thing you mentioned: someone allows 10 downloads per connection and 20 connections at once. nothing you can do but hope to find a time there no one else is downloading.
I think this is the big one right here. BearShare allows way too many by default and users seldom know to correct this. The problem just gets worse when sharing large files. If you're sharing anything over a 10 meg you're better off to only allow one or two uploads at a time, but letting them have good bandwidth. Otherwise you'll get more starting, but they'll all be too slow to ever finish.
