The Pirate Bay Tops 15 Million Peers

Story : http://torrentfreak.com/the-pirate-bay-tops-15-million-users-080921/

Today, The Pirate Bay reached a new milestone, as they now have more than 3 million registered users. On top of that, they track close to 15 million unique peers. The largest BitTorrent tracker just keeps growing and growing, and there is no sign that this will be put to a halt anytime soon.

When this article is published, The Pirate Bay now tracks nearly 1,288,514 torrents and 14,786,539 unique peers. As a comparison, in December 2006 they tracked 576,080 torrents and 4,274,698 peers, so today’s figures represent quite an increase.

TiAMO, one of Pirate Bay’s co-founders and the one responsible for keeping the hardware up and running, is happy with the traffic increase, and writes:

“A big thanks to all our users helping to make the site what it is. We’ll keep growing for as long as you keep using the site, filing it with content, sharing.”

If the above scenario is true then that would mean it is a good Seeder to Leech ratio ... 13 Seeders to every 1 Leecher, which is roughly a 1300% seeder/leecher ratio. A site like Empornium.us has roughly about 470% Seeder to Leecher ratio so if the entire Empornium Seeding population is:

402,366 then the Leechers = (Seeder/Percent)*100 = 85,547

So sir I don't think you have the desired effect, you should say 9.33million are leechers not 900,000, that should give you a 50% Seeder/ Leecher Ratio ... something that delivers that dramatic effect.

14 million and 9 hundred thousand = 14,900,000. His comment suggests a ratio of 149 leeches per seed. That's a terrible ratio.

Well now I see what he meant, got lost in the use of the word "and" it bridges one idea with the other it does not implicitly tie them up together. I owe an apology to "Your_Mentor", my bad just love to nitpick numbers ;) .
