If you can create a Torrent you're an expert in my book.

And honestly... as far as trackers and swarms and all that goes... i've gotten so many different answers on the utorrent forums it just seems like people do what they feel is best almost like their is no "Right way" to do things... Either that or things change quite a bit depending on the site your uploading to.

I found them to be a little elitist and consider you stupid for daring to ask a question.

Throttling and Encryption seems like something worth lookin in to.... 45-70 percent of a countries bandwidth coming from 1 application type is a LOT.

I bet the throttling technologies are extremely difficult to circumvent.... I know what i'm doin' when i get home right after i burn one .... which is researching, very slowly, on how to get around throttling

Yup, some ISPs block torrent activity if found. uTorrent uses a random port on each start, others may do the same.

Bittorrent and Malware lists some scary numbers though... but applies more for people out their pirating software anyway. i just upload hard to find files to try and make them easier to obtain if i ever lose my copy to be honest... Heres one of my torrents right here:

Yea i randomize my port each time i load it and use encryption etc... but like i said i'm sure they know all the tricks. All they have to do is download the latest version of a client and exploit it. Probably gotta know your stuff big time in order to get around the throttling.

It sucks thought because i plan on having my S4 for a LONG time and i'm having problems getting people to seed it to where it will stick around... I do have them in my dropbox though the download speed is just so slow.
