New Ticket: Re: eMule real decoys from dedicated servers

It looks like it has already leaked so we will have a presence of
exactly the number of hashes that were given to us. So probably
about 10-15 out of 45+ hashes will be us for each title, unless
people have started modifying our hashes by adding ID3 tags or
whatever which is possible. And like I said Ares will not be working
well until Bo fixes the ID3 tags in the mp3s.
