But you forget all the hash fails that are introduced into the equation. I've had 500 MB torrents with 30 MB failed. This can throw off the whole system. It still counts toward your ratio even if it isn't useful. You or I may up/down a piece into the mix but it may be worthless. Someone who has a few minor gigs is negligible, but someone who ups/downs 100's of gigs (or even TB's), this can count a large chunk into the whole ratio. This is one of the many variables that can effect a ratio (bad trackers, flaky clients, stopping/starting in the middle of a torrent etc).

Welcome to steady state.
