GregorK is flying high

Candidates are ignored out of different reasons. Downloads or network blocked (Shareaza), File not available anymore, Not reachable (Firewall status), Out of date (IP might be too old) and so on..

They are not dropped and still tracked till the end of session to prevent that they unnecessary reappear as fresh candidates through searches or download mash.
Also certain ignore reasons will be used to inform others of bad candidates.

Other clients are usually doing the same kind of tracking.. they just dont display it to users.
