You seem to get to know the regulars/acceptable ratio members etc here and if I can seed/help in any way I will...however I feel that not only myself but others feel the same way in declining from assisting PPLZ ....might just make up my own blacklist of members ??? At the end of the day, its just about how each member goes about dealing with these issues....PS. the idea of access to certain levels for certain ratio (below 1:1) members seems to be the go..of course in consultation with the mods acces can be granted based solely on their merits to those below 1:1 and monitored ???. KEEP ON SHARING

Torrent clients like Azureus will queue torrents until more seeders are why would you band those folks? If they hit n run all the time, that's a different story, and their ratio will show it. I'd say a time limit to allow them to get back their fair use ratio...even with a limited connection because vines/b&p's are still an option for sharing here...if they cannot comply within the time frame or they chose not to become visibly involved in the other options available...then yes, find the boot and give it a big swing.

I just found out there's no such thing as the real world, it's just a lie I have to rise above.......
