Although saying shit like this doesn't help your case any. This is called sharing. And apparently after reading this thread not every dummy knows how to do it.
Wrong. Sharing means creating the torrent and all associated files correctly, and seeding long enough for it to be considered well seeded (6 completions and seeders is my rule of thumb). People who sit on a torrent and seed choose to, and that is fine, but they hardly make a difference in "sharing" if they are one of 50 seeders. At a certain point the torrent does not benefit from more seeders, although one's ratio does. When I review an old torrent that I have seeded, and there are very few or no seeders left, with leechers still trying to complete, I jump back on that torrent to assist those who need it. That is sharing in my opinion.

If you say I don't know how share fine. If you want to take issue with my ratio that's fair. I'm working to improve it.
