when you seed out a show it is 'nice' if the first few stick around.
but maybe they have to leave for work.. or maybe their kids need something.. or maybe the cops are at their door.
Ive seen a lot of people jump off - only to jump back on later.
Doesnt bother me in the least. I wanted to seed out - why should it bring me down.

Blocking a few leechers just because you deem them 'unworthy' is ridiculous.
Once seeded, it is out & up for grabs for any and all - no time for whiners & ratio vigilantes
