I got so annoyed, I registered to discuss this one topic.
I recently got a fast connection, supposedly 30/10Mbps. Anyway, seems more like 30/30 in reality.
To get to the point, I've been seeding stuff like mad, around 3MB/s day and night, to try to build up the number of completes for the different torrents. (In a month I've uploaded close to 5 TB... These are crazy numbers to me...)
If I have uploaded something with a ratio of 50:1, shouldn't there be at least 50 seeders? For instance, there is a documentary called "The truth and lies of 9/11" which I've uploaded with a ratio of 66:1. Both Azureus and the tracker (TPB) tell me that there now are two other seeders...
Does that mean that no one who downloaded it knows about ratios, or do people just ignore their responsibility to seed?
Another example is an episode of Top Gear, which I've seeded roughly 400:1 - it has 70 seeds...
