At some point, a year ago, give or take, I realized all xmpp clients suck ass. It was this malcontent that led me to #profanity. A week ago I realized all bittorrent clients suck donkey ass, they are all slow like shit or terribly bloated. Again, the malcontent made me install rtorrent. You really need to try rtorrent, I have never ever seen such speed. Rtorrent is ultrasmooth. Also sexy as cli, no bloat, elegant, minimal, clear, nice and sexy.
Why are you not using rtorrent, diasporian?
