Here's a random question that came to me this morning. I download a lot over BitTorrent. Mostly shows from taper friendly bands, so it's all legal. I wrote a long time ago how I thought BitTorrent was the ultimate hippie application and I still continue to believe this. It's great to be able to get all these shows and the everyone helping each other nature of BitTorrent goes along very well with the culture of the jam band scene.
So, the question that came to my head this morning is what is considered a good share ratio? If you share 100% (basically sharing as much as you download) is that an appropriate time to discontinue being connected to the torrent? Or is it at some other point? Ideas welcome.
