    It's true. There should be diminishing returns on upload ratios so that people won't overseed, when it harms others? Maybe?

    Is that really the point of bittorrent though?
    Should we allow it to become about money?

    the torrent that i am talking about has average 7 leechers all the time
    more than likely, those aren't really leechers, but people who only downloaded certain episodes out of the torrent. if you partially download a torrent, you still show up as a leech instead of a seed.

    you would not pay for bittorrent, you would pay for the internet connection

    This kind of complaint is nothing new as ive seen it in other forums as well. And one thing i can guaratee u is that they will never outlaw the concept of seeding for too long. Personally, id rather get good speeds on older torrents because someone bothered to seed to his heart's content than just get 20 kb/s because overseeding is suddenly frowned upon.

    Thanks bro, but i dont think God himself can help me now.
    by the way to the friend above ,i did not mean complain..i just share d the reality in my story with you guys. and yup you could be right ,i never thought of those partial downloaders!! i thought i was doing a smart move by downloading a huge torrent,i always thought huge torrents are a good idea to boost up the ratio,at this point, now i proved myself how wrong i was. i should be thankfull for what i have..if i wanted to buy this series(here where i live) when the dvd came out i should have gave my entire salary of one mounth for it! heheh
    thanks

    This is why whenever I get access to a new tracker, I seed a file previously downloaded from another site on the new one and try to build up a buffer between the amount downloaded and uploaded. Try sorting the torrents by number of leechers and see if you have any of the files and seed them.

    On a similar note some sites have a seeding policy of either seed to a X ratio or for Y amount of days
