= R =
[warez d00dz] An FTP site storing pirated files
where one must first upload something before being able to
download. There is a ratio, based on bytes or files count, between
the uploads and download. For instance, on a 2:1 site, to download
a 4 Mb file, one must first upload at least 2 Mb of files. The
hotter the contents of the server are, the smaller the ratio
is. More often than not, the server refuses uploads because its
disk is full, making it useless for downloading - or the
connection magically breaks after one has uploaded a large amount
of files, just before the downloading phase begins. See also
banner site, leech mode.
