    have you experienced this with torrents? your downloading a game (a demo of course) its a good size lets say dvd size.
    so you let it download and you walk away or go to sleep. so you come back to it about 8 hours later and notice that you are download at 20kb/s yet there are over 75 seeders, then you look at the speed... heres where it gets annoying. (if your like me and use fios) my upload speed was going over 1.1Mbp/s i'm not shocked at this, i set the specific torrent upload to 50 kbp/s and it jumped up to 200kbp/s, so make sure you balance out your speeds to get the max! I HATE STINGY GOD DAMN UPLOADERS! (I know what your thinking hes doing the same thing as everyone else now being stingy! nah only when i get mad at torrents like these) oh yeah and seed the friggin torrents too, theres no appreciation anymore. back in the old days we had FTP sites that didnt use ratios, then they came out with ratios because of people like this. then torrents, now some torrent sites are private and have ratios and make you register with them!

    bah!

    Stop wasting your time torrenting and get a usenet account. Never have to worry about douchebag seeders ever again.

    could also be PACKET SHAPING by your ISP at various times of the day to allow other surrounding users in your area to be able to get a half decent internet access ... its almost common practice out there now with nearly ALL ISP's to do this to give everyone a fair slice of the bandwith [​IMG]

    lol yeah, I had a usenet account with my ISP but they got rid of all the good groups due to kiddie porn... the whole thing is wiped clean. I might just have to go with a decent usenet account then.

    Get a newsgroup account , torrents are shite i only use them for old xvids and thats only if i cant find them anywhere else on the entire internet , multiple times ive left files downloading only to be left at 90+ % while the rest of my files get pumped out at my max upload , or even better be left downloading at 5k on a 20 meg connection because the uploads are getting finished first , totally shit system.

    nope they lock your speeds at 100-200k where usenet doesn't. Rapidshare is only good for downloading files 100mb and under.
