I think they're good..
say for example if you dont seed till your ratio is 1 then you are banned, then that means speeds will increase... on bitmetv i get loads of new episodes as they are released during the week.. Lost, OC, 24, Desperate Housewives, Family Guy Name is Earl, etc... I always get 1000kbps... I then seed till +1...
it is so much better this way.. on the free trackers i only ever get shit speeds because no one bothers to seed..
this is the best way..
