i think free leech is a dumb idea for anything for trackers.

for example, i downloaded the what cd in both v0 and flac because it was free leech and i wanted to seed it to get some extra upload.

sure enough:
   Various Artists - The What CD [V0]
            done      131.5 MB Rate:   0.0 /   0.0 KB Uploaded:   475.5 MB                 [T  R: 3.62]
   Various Artists - The What CD [FLAC]
            done      474.0 MB Rate:   0.0 /   0.0 KB Uploaded:   670.2 MB                 [T  R: 1.41]


i just think it's a dumb way to inflate ratios.

watch me buy free leech on waffles and fill up my 250gb hard drive.

my line speed is 8Mbps.

( 8 Mb / s ) * ( 1 MB / 8 Mb ) * ( 1 GB / 1024 MB ) * ( 60 s / 1 m ) * ( 60 m / 1 h ) * ( 24 h / 1 d ) = 84.375 GB/day

so in 24 hours, i'll only be able to download 84.375 GB max. not too bad, though.

it is deadly for the economy. basically if you look at what's economy they have double the upload as download.

people get crappy ratios and demand that they have a freeleech, when clearly that is the wrong attitude and unsustainable. what probably won't have a freeleech for a *long time* as a result.

I'm a mod over on BN now and we ran freeleech for a while. The usual rules applied (ie. if you don't seed for 72 hrs. OR .65 ratio on that torrent, you get a warning. 5 warnings in 30 days, perma-ban)
