I guess that is just a punitive measure because doesn't that actually make it harder for someone to improve their ratio (assuming they genuinely are trying to)?
Oh yeah. That's about all that accomplishes. Those with good ratios get it first, seed until they hit 1.0, then drop off. Leaving lots of people with bad ratios incomplete if nobody chooses to stay to seed to them. It can only be punishment, since they're never going to improve their ratio having to wait & come in late.
