Sometimes I'm only interested in a few of the files in a multi-file torrent. Once I have those, I often keep the torrent active so I can seed other users--so my user profile will show me as leeching lots of torrents, even though I'm no longer leeching files, just seeding them. Is there a down side to having my statistics look "bad" this way? It seems to be working out fine.
On a related note (and maybe off-topic for this thread), my ratio is about 4.0, thanks to moving back to a city and having a high-speed connection. Am I running up the score here and not letting other users with low ratios seed more volume?
As noted in the previous comment - this results in downloading one or a few files from a 'pack' - only to have them shared but showed as leeched.
the only option is just to remove them (after sharing for a long while) - just to remove a few 'blockers' on downloading rules.
pity that this cant be fixed in some other way... but ... I'll just have to regularly check what is showing as 'leeching' from packs.
