They finally pulled through for me . I was trying to download Guitar Hero 3 for the Mac. I tried Brokenstones and Demonoid. Both pulled up pathetic speeds of about 30kb/s. Torrenttracker found a Piratebay torrent, and voila! speeds of about 500kb/s. I can now get in 5hrs as apposed to 3 days. This is what I don't understand. Surely those on private trackers have more of an obligation to seed at faster speeds and it is in their best interests? It is beneficial both ways: leechers get files quicker and their ratios get boosted quicker. Why are the speeds so slow then sometimes.
