Default Your requests are known.

They simply get into the Gnutella network and record requests from your IP.

You can imagine how short of proofs they are. It has been reported their mails are done by bots, and because of unwanted spoofing from some clients, many mistakes are made by their bots even on requests or the fact that you have ever been connect to Gnutella network.

You know about the feature getting you through a firewall. Imagine you forgot to change to your new IP address after a reconnection. Well, this happens often.

Also, I am used to get on my firewall quieries from Fasttrack network even if I never used any of their client. Those are the last IP owner's but what if a stupid bot may think this is because of my requests. I don't even want to think of how Overpeer and friends may be able to get a legal and certified bot. This sounds impossible.
