Re: Should we ban thoughtless leechers?

well my ratio ain't so good - just a few DVD things blew it down - but still

Many ISPs throttle upload speeds to prevent you running a server - it might be that some people can download a torrent in an hour but would need to seed for a LOT longer - if there are enough other leechers - to get to 1-1 just because of their ISP. Comcast is notorious for that.

not much you can do about it if you can't just get another ISP - some areas you have only one choice.

Look at leechers as the people helping YOU keep YOUR ratio up and quit worrying about "thoughtless" or whatever.
