    Who would have thought that there are invite sellers and account traders who don't know what cheating is.

    The speed will be the same, but the stats the cheaters report to the tracker would be different. So the actual speed would not be affected, but if you were to look at the speed in the peers/torrents page, then you would be wondering why the swarm speed is higher than what you can see in your client.

    He asked a simple question, its that a bad thing


    “The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity.”

    lawl..
    cheating does not affect "real" speeds. Period.
    Your upload amount is nonexistent in the "real" stream of data flowing in the swarm.
    So, If your upload amount is fictitious, your contributed speeds will also be fictitious. So, It "really" does not effect real speeds of the connected peers.

    kthxbai!

    The cheating itself will of course have no affect on your speed as it simply is fabricating numbers. The leeching however and lack of seeds might.
