*ANY* user, *ANY* BT traffic

This is bullshit!
No ISP should be doing a blanket protocol kill!

Guy down the street, running wide open 24/7 and every movie/music file known and chewing hundreds of GB? Boot him!
You or I trying to do a little "Distributed Bandwidth"(WoW/software patchs, Linux, LEGAL HD Videos, whatever) and maintain a 1:1 ratio but we get hosed by this nonsense?
Eat me!

While I have basically moved on to better sources for "things", there is the occasional BT use for LEGAL items done here.
My ratio is getting trashed.
Low ratios get you less speed.
Low ratios can get you banned.

Gee! Thanks!

Please show me some legal torrents where low ratios get you banned.

Here ya go, sparky. Unlike the **AAs, who are hellbent on making themselves obsolete, the NHL wants to generate interest in the sport of ice hockey.

Go to the tracker of your choice where you are a member.
One where you are logged and your ratio is displayed.
One where they state that if your ratio falls too low or you do nothing bet leech - banned!

Remember Demonoid? Sure you do!
They had a few legal torrents.
They also had a ratio policy.
Demonoid is gone now though.

If Demonoid was still up, and I were to continue downloading - whatever, and Comcast was trashing my upload, guess what would happen... Yep! Ban City!

Mashimaro don't be a douche.

Throttling EVERYBODY is wrong. Gross Offenders should be the ones throttled if they bust the cap - no one else. Otherwise there's a whole bunch of us who feel like we're not getting the service we're paying for.

Yeah, so much for everyone that may have an actual use for BT.
Horseshit!

It would be one thing if it was competing for something offered by Comcast or a Comcast affiliate(payola) - but it's not!
Me and my Network Killing 30GB(Thirty Gigabyte)*TOTAL* monthly use is waxing their bottom line, huh?
30GB per month(Total, both ways) is not harming ANYONE ELSE! Period!
Let alone what little of that is actual BT traffic.
But... my paltry BT usage is getting trashed along side Joe Bandwidth Hog.

Yeah, that makes a whole lot of sense, don't it?

Yes that must be a legit site. Obviously the NHL contracted this Steven Dale fellow from the UK to build a profanity laden torrent site for them.

So subscribe to business class service that permits operating servers. Then you would have a case.

I do not believe they throttle everyone. I believe they are only throttling residential subscribers operating servers, but not business subscribers.

Don't need a server.
If you really want to go there *I* am a server!
Ban me? The paying party? Doubt it!

BT is getting Sandvine-ified across the board.
Business class is irrelavent.

They do not want to ban you. They like your money. So they opt to prevent the specific useage and keep collecting your money. How do you like being a Comcast SPAMCastic puppet now.

What is your evidence BT up stream traffic is getting Sandvine-ified on business class service?

That is what I thought. Apparently as usual you do not have any evidence to back up your claim.
