You may or may not have realized, that I am the Senior Network 
Administrator at an ISP, because I usually turn off my signature 
when posting. I am not doing it to be covert, I do it because 
I am not responding as an official of my company.

I feel that as a good network citizen I should behave the 
way I would expect my customers to behave. Fortunately I have 
the advantage of knowing if my traffic is adversely affecting
our network, and can tune it accordingly. I have also taken 
measure to ensure my traffic goes through the least costly 
upstream connection. If this was only for personal use, I would 
have used my broadband connection at home, but strangely enough
that would actually cost us more, but that is our policy for 
employees.

As a good bittorrent citizen I make sure to give back at least 
as much as I take. As it turns out that torrent kept seeding until
it was at 2:1, but I am not sure why, I thought I had configured 
a default of 1.1:1. I am not all that concerned, and was glad to 
be of assistance.
