WTF IS P2L?
Have read quite a few threads, and it seems almost 99% of FileSharingTalk.coms BT Section is confused about this. I have seen some hate threads about sites which they believe are P2L, but are in fact not. The truth of the matter is, there is no BitTorrent tracker in existence today which is Pay2Leech. A few years ago, there was one, but it was spammed, d dosed and hacked out of existence. Anyway Most of you think, ScT, CT, ST, TL, RevTT, etc are Pay2Leech, well let me make it simple, THEY ARE NOT! It doesn't matter who says what, if a user with a grudge says it, or another siteop with a grudge says it. YOU ARE WRONG.
Pay2Leech requires a person to Pay Money to get access to the content. ScT, CT, ST, etc are NOT Pay2Leech. Pay2Leech is like Newsgroups providers and Topsite Access providers, they require money to get access to the content and to be able to download. Just because a site sells GBs like CT or ST doesn't mean they are Pay2Leech. Its strictly an incentive and a thanks to users who donate.
Some of you feel this is wrong, so let me explain to you why it is not. For example: I have a p2p blocked provider which limits my seeding alot less then i would want it to be. I seed for the required minimum time to cancel out Hit & Run but am not able to reach 1:1 on the torrents which i snatch. Well there is good news, my favorite tracker ST is now giving away GBs for my donation to the site funding, the same site funding which lets them bring me new releases at top speeds and at great pres and also keeps the site going for another month. So i donate 20 bucks, my ratio gets to 1:1 and continue download and following the rules of the tracker.. is it still wrong now?
that was a rhetorical question
I know what you are going to say, what about the users that just hit and run and get bad ratio, but then purchase GBs and get their ratio back to normal. The answer to that is, Ban hit and runners then... if you run a tracker and don't even have a hit and run script, what was going through your mind when you opened a tracker?
that was also a rhetorical question
Another thing, i know many of you users are thinking about, what about all the funds that this site gets from these donations incentives, how do i know its going to the right place? Answer, you truly don't know, even if a tracker is not P2L, donations can still be misused, it depends on a trackers ethics, FTN isnt P2L but they dont even tell us how much donations they need, all they have is a percentage counter, and some have no counter, but sites like ScT are quite respectable, after all the accusations from a certain ex-siteop, they came out and explained where every last cent of the site funds went, even brought out the bill they get from nForce Hosting every month, but if a tracker is Donate for Incentive and the site seems to be failing (example: load errors, <2000 torrents, torrent speeds are slow, inactive staff, etc) then its time to start worrying, if this happens, then its quite obvious where the site has gone.
So discuss with me why you hate your supposed "P2L" trackers, and if you don't and I am gonna randomly call our your names, don't think i wont Or hell explain why if you agree.
I love user input.
