I use an old client which hasn't been updated for awhile. It has no upload and always works great. Now they are adding ADs I am not interested in their software.

Why would you use a client that has no upload? That severely limits your download speed by preventing you from connecting to many peers at once. If you're concerned about a cap, you can limit your upload speeds, or schedule them during hours when you have no cap.

Some people being on what is now slow DSl, disabling upload doesn't affect download speeds. It hasn't for my 3Mbps connection.

Many sites will eventually ban you for this practice. After all, it's suppose to be sharing, not be greedy and leech.

When you only have 20KBps of upload anyway it doesn't matter too much.

You expect people that want to download content without paying for it to be honorable?

Funny I have been doing this for years. I haven't been banned once.
