Oh, this will be entirely effective. Everyone will just switch to another Gnutella client

These people are so ignorant.  Lime wire is just a CLIENT on the Gnutella network, right? Line wire can't be held responsublefor what people post on this network, when a lot of are users who aren't using Lime Wire. Tthere's tons of these clients for all platforms that use the Gnutella network, like Bareshare. Just google search!

Killing off a clent in an already HUGE P2P network isn't going to matter. At least Kazaa (kina), and Napster were on closed networks and shutting that down did acctually stop people from using it. But by the time that came around, there were already other file sharing networks. And bit torret seems to be lead the way.

Took 'em long enough. Being able to download Limewire paid from your torrent site of choice while using Limewire free is a textbook example of FAIL. 

Move on to better clients.

i think limewire should stay up as well if people use it i hope they get virus's cause they stupid for even using it in the first place(not for the piracy issue just cause limewire is useless) and i think the riaa should stop being little whinny bitchs and take the dick out of there ass n fuck off. the only reason they went after limewire now is cause they finally relized that even if they take single people to court for piracy n nail them will hugh fines, how they gonna pay it when they broke? but i still think the RIAA should all be put in a house which is then boarded up solid then have a water tanker spray the house with gas n diesel n then toss a match at the bitch n let it burn. the riaa is just a bunch of people who were beat up in school so they decided lets become a high profile group who sues everyone for sneezing in the wrong direction of other peoples stuff n make millions for it. fucking losers

LimeWire falls, and there will be two more to take it's place.  LimeWire really only replaced Kazaa, which replaced Bear Share, which replaced Napster and all the infinite incarnations in between these P2P applications.  There is already a FrostWire which is pretty much just a re-skinned LimeWire. 

 

RIAA.  Believe me when I tell you that the people that use these applications would NEVER have paid for the content anyway.  With the high risk of a viral infection and the snailish download speeds, they were just after something for nothing.  You're just waisting time.

 Considering how old Lime Wire is, I'm suprised that it took this long for them to be targeted in this way.

I respect your opinion, however wrong it may be.

I guess that would curb 11 year old piracy.
