Where is the incentive to bother uploading?

I try for 3 days to upload a torrent and get unhelpful responses. Fact is why are people going to bust their balls trying to help others for them to close out your torrents as soon as they finish anyway? It is no wonder that TPB is going to shit.

Most everyone is experiencing downtime at the moment and unable to upload torrents. A healthy dose of patience is highly recommended.

As to why people stop seeding a torrent once their download is complete, that is an unfortunate and frustrating fact of life in the peer-to-peer universe. Many people can be ungrateful. It is up to the individual downloader to decide whether to seed back or hit and run. It has absolutely nothing to do with TPB.

No it's nothing to do with TPB but ultimately it effects TPB, that is also a fact of life.

I can only assume people hit & run because it is easy to do, or they will receive a notice from their ISP

In the heart of the uploader.

If you expect us to provide you with incentives you're in the wrong place. We believe in free sharing, not sharing for reward.

And if you have no faith in humanity, I pity you. [Not really. That you're the sort of person who would ask such a question means you're the sort of person I couldn't give a fuck about.]

TPB isn't going to shit. Your question answers itself. The reward is sharing, which you and others don't seem to get, from your own perspective.

Besides the hit-and-runners who, knowingly and deliberately, don't seed their fair share after download, one can distinguish those who:

(1) sincerely don't know they have to - they're new to torrenting and are used to download from direct http links so for them downloading from torrent is no different - they click a [.torrent|magnet] link after all and the torrent client is only a cool app with a speed graph (I was one of these on my first 5 or 6 textbooks or solutions manuals downloads and was a black Demonoidian at the time - Hey, don't judge or laugh, I repaid with over 2,200 uploads since);

(2) have little upload capability, judging from their download speed (but some will fool you by connecting to 10, 15, even 20 torrents simultaneously, each at apparent low DL speed, drawing pity from you, and actually hit-and-running the whole bunch);

(3) download a torrent on a loop to deplete the swarm (trolls - they probably get paid for that);

(4) download now and will seed later but humanly forget or postpone to the weekend or are drawn by newer uploads in the meantime;

(5) were spoiled by a few uploaders with very high throughput (e.g., seedboxers) and come to believe that every uploader is seedboxing;
