Automatic removal of seedless torrents


Recommended Posts

I suggest an option-controlled feature to monitor new torrents and, if no seeders are detected for it - even briefly - after a selected period of time and less than n peers exist, then the torrent is automatically removed and files deleted. This limits personal and collective bandwidth wasted on incomplete torrents that are likely to never complete; if everyone enabled such a feature then eventually such torrents could die a proper death. I recognize that in theory a torrent might still complete with just peers and no seeds, but that is in my experience very unlikely unless the number of peers is very high (perhaps 100 or more). This would be an optional feature controlled by a configuration setting under Bandwidth or Queuing.
