Agreed

I just get angry at the bashers...many many times I have seen them attack users with lower ratios .
Sometimes it's just a blatant attack & unnecessary .
You have to see the whole picture before accusing someone of "not sharing".
Do they:
Tape shows & upload
Uploads their silvers
Upload reseeds
Donate monetarily
Jump back on to help seed [regardless of isp limits]
Always jump n' run
Work on sites either as mods or technical
Create artworks
Offer their knowledge of events & artists
ect ect........

Also

There are many ways to share including Donating monetarily which all of these sites need.
And if a site offers percs for those who Donate there's nothing wrong with that...IMO
