RatioCheat : The New Way To Cheat Torrent Ratio

While the PirateBay and other public trackers are having problems with the authorities for copyright infringements many users are fleeing to private trackers to satiate their hunger for free media, However, These days not even private trackers seem immune to problems, ratio cheaters are using new tools to download faster and without having to upload back to the community - These users generally complain that the admins are "ratio fascists" and that the whole thing is more or less pointless since the BitTorrent protocol already rewards people for seeding.

Even the creator of BitTorrent Bram Cohen has come out against private tracker admins using ratios to ban people:

From Bram's Blog:

Some BitTorrent web sites have implemented upload/download ratios, with banning of people whose ratio gets too out of whack. The problem with this approach (aside from that it's completely unclear that not uploading is a problem to begin with, since tit-for-tat works well) is that it's overly punishing. Just a little bit of threatening to ban people can get the overall balance to be very heavily weighted on the side of uploading, making it difficult for people to accomplish a reasonable amount of upload even if they try.

We have shared tricks on how to cheat your torrent share ratio when in extreme need but all of them required users to download utilities like RatioFaker, RatioMaster, Tracker-Pro or GreedyTorrent but new free online service RatioCheat takes-care of your cheating needs without requiring download any utility on your computer.
