Thumbs down Connection Refused, Connection Timeout...

After doing a test of over 500 searches, the success rate of actually being able to download a file is about 26%. Why is this so small? Is the architecture for these filesharing programs built inefficiently or is there other problems such as routing and network bottlenecks? Most common problems include Connection Timeouts, Connection Refused, Unable to connect to Host, and the seemingly terminal waits in queues. It just strikes me that all the filesharing applications out there still don't do a good enough job. It's way too cumbersome to try and get a song, file, video, or image. Not sure what the problem is with these filesharing difficulties but hopefully it will be resolved soon. This program would be great if you could actually get the files it displays without running into the myriad of errors and connection problems associated with the hosts.
