Thread: Accidental Ghost leeching

  1. #1
    Hello all, I just got banned from a tracker for "ghost leeching". I had to look up this term because I had no idea what it meant. My question is Can someone accidentally "ghost leech"? I understand that you guys cant explain how to do it, but would cycling a router or running a program like CleanUp while downloading cause this problem?

    No, attempting to stop reporting what you're leeching to a tracker will do it, as well as giving out your passkey or torrents you've downloaded to other people who do the same thing; this is breaking the rules.

    I am not sure how you have a ghost leeching. but I dont think it has something to do with CleanUp while you are downloading.

    What client were you using, and where did you download it? Normally cheaters run a program, or a modified client. I suppose its possible that you were using a modified client without knowing it, but you should always download clients from the developers site, not some random mirror site.

    Well no, there are other possibilities I suppose. I remember hearing about 1 ISP that was messing with the client's announces, they were modifying / blocking the packets sent, and the tracker would see it as cheating.

    But that is probably not the case here.

    Edit, whered the post above mine go?

    well damn. I get banned for nothing and now the tool won't listen to reason.

    I understand everyone lies on the internet but come on. I was a member of the tracker for over 5 years and have even donated to them.

    freakin sucks
