That's not necessarily true, DIME typically has about a 3 day life span for torrents. They die very quickly there, after the initial feeding frenzy they get buried, unlike here where you can bump the thread and let people know it's still alive.

Ratios don't work to spread stuff, they just work to limit proliferation, which is counter to the boot-trading philosophy.

If it comes down to a matter of "majority rules" then you'll likely see TTD implement strict ratio enforcement (to the detriment of TTD.) If it's a matter of principle, then forget ratios, things work better when it's done in a spirit of sharing.
