IMO torrents are a ancient medium, i exclusivly download my "stuff" from news servers.

More reliable, more complete and most important better speeds!

Person D connects while A=100, B=75, C=25. D will download from all three.
Person B reaches 100%. Since person B is a douchebag, he will now disconnect from the torrent.
Person C reaches 100%. Since he is cool, he will stay around for a while and let people download off of him.

It keeps going.
I think im Person B, i never have the patience to stick around, plus it slows my internet connection so down that i cant actually use firefox...
