    Question Mark

    What do you say? Does ratiocheating cause any form of damage to a tracker or its members?

    I admit that I once ratiocheated more than a terabyte on sct.
    Ever since that I've leeched loads of torrents and helped other members out with seeding, by leeching from them.

    In other words, by cheating and then leeching a lot, you improve the activity on a tracker, right?
    Imo it doesn't harm a thing, except for breaking rules and maybe it is etchically wrong.

    Who is to say that you'll leech after. People want big buffers today not to leech afterwards, but to have something to show off with.

    Also, I can't imagine downloading 1TB of stuff. Maybe if they were HD, but that's still 250 movies in 720p.

    I'm back. The downside is that I'm also old now.

    Of course it does, if everyone did that there is no one who can seed the file. It's all about sharing!

    I normally download about 1tb in a month.
    When I'm on a leechingspree I download 1tb in less than a week, and I have less than 10mbit down speed.

    Stop comparing with "if" sentences, that's just ridiculous.
    It's just speculations, none of it is fact and will most likely not happen.

    Cheating is Cheating. Its bad and goes against what bit torrent is about - Sharing.

    I have 1 mbit speed and I tend ot use/watch/play/listen to the stuff I download. I don't download for stats.

    Then we have something in common, except for that I don't use all of the stuff I download. About half of it is for friends and family.

    Anyways, why would someone download for the stats?
    Is it cool to have a lot of downloaded?
    I thought most people are trying to get as much uploaded as possible, not downloaded.

    Thanks for your input, however it doesn't answer the question.
