Why do you have the hub window open anyway? Just minimize the hub windows, because there is nothing particularly useful once you connect and read the hub information.

With the new system, the client downloads filelists for the autosearch feature. During that process, an upload speed for that user is established.

If matching someone's list against your queue results in more sources, that will translate into less auto-searches, which is definitely a win for the hub. Thanks for the clarification, Gargoyle.

You should always check your downloads to make sure they are:
a) Legit

If you just throw them in some directory, and then share that directory...you are likely to spread poor downloads and waste alot of bandwidth.
