Oh folks, don't embarass yourselves. Except for maybe Sweden almost every country has asynchronous internet lines. So what? If you had mentioned that your IPSs throttle P2P traffic that would be a good point, but complaining about lower upspeeds than downspeeds, then you are exactly the kind of people I adressed in my earlier post. You don't get P2P and you just want to leech. If you expect a torrent to be seeded 1:1 by the time you finish downloading it you didn't really get the point of torrenting. Keeping the file offered after you finished downloading is the glue that keeps the system together. Not getting to 1.0 as fast as possible and then running away. You just want to grab your file and be done with it, that's not sharing at all, hence my former posts about P2P having no chance of a comeback due to people's mentality.
I only have 70kb/s upload at 700kb/s download, that's a 1:10 ratio. And I still have ratios safely beyond 1.0 on every place I've been, with more than 1TB download on some places. Time will take care of everything. And if you still just want to grab stuff, that's also possible via torrenting for cheap. Buy a seedbox for one month. It's a dedicated webserver sitting in a datacenter with a huge internet connection (100Mbit - 10 Gbit) to use for nothing but seeding. There are providers out there who set it up ready to use for even the biggest beginner. A month on a decent one doesn't even cost 10$. Do that once, and you can have a upload buffer of 500+GB on multiple sites in parallel, that way you'll never have to worry about ratios again. You can then just grab what you want and leave the torrent, you can even throttle the upload to 1kB/s while doing so. You'll never use up that safetly buffer.
My point stands, excuses, excuses.
Disclaimer: It's ok if you don't want to share, that doesn't make you worse human beings or anything like that. Just don't make up excuses for torrenting sucking to justifiy your behaviour. The reason you dislike torrenting is because you want instant piracy. That's fine. It just proves my reasoning why P2P piracy will never come back. I'm also not saying torrenting is somehow morally superior, it's still piracy. It just comes from a different mindset, that's all I wanted to point out.
