    *bleep* ILT, they randomly ban people on purpose or not and when i ask for a explanation they laugh in your face and say you have cheated. I was a member of ILT, i donated money, i always had a ratio above 1 and i shared my movies far above 1 : 1. Luckily there are better sites to get your movies, but i am pissed off for calling a cheater. ILT are a bunch of cheaters!!!!

    there are plenty of good sites out there, went to the site and nothing special about the site, what i did not like about it was, if you are a new member you could not get the new torrents, as soon as they were posted, you had to have a certin ratio before you could get them, would have to wait at least 24 hours. to get the new or popular torrents.

    I have the same problem: I got an error, and later I found out my account had been blocked. My ratio was about 6.5, so that obviously wasn't the problem. I'm a bit pissed off because I can't email them to ask for an explanation.

    I did find out I was booted for cheating which at the time, was thinking no way, I thought I was very careful and also contributed. I did research and found out that when downloading an album or song list, I would just click the songs I wanted and not take the rest. Not allowed!! this caused issues with others downloading and would skew ratio numbers and it looked like I was doing this intentionally. You are correct when you say you get booted without notice and do not have a chance to find out why or even if you really feel you are not guilty, its not taken into consideration. Read the site rules and follow them. Hope this helps. Have since joined another site and very careful about making sure I download everything in the torrent including the sample upload so ratio is greater and because I appreciate everything all do, contribute. Everything is great.

    That's weird, I didn't even do that. I always downloaded dvds. I opened a new account to ask for a reason, and how to avoid being banned in the future. As a reply, they banned my new account too. LOL. At least they're consistent.

    On the things you were downloading, did you download just the sample in some cases or maybe start the download of something and then stop half way through? I am only guessing here but I think if you download just a part of something and it shows up on their reports it could be misconstrued as someone cheating and getting the torrent elsewhere and finishing it up on their site. I think a lot of people do this and you will see the exact same torrents on two sites sometimes being shared. I think if you are a member of one site, they really would prefer you not be a member of another and if so, better not download from one to give to another. I tried what you did, set up another account to find out why I got booted because I also thought I did nothing wrong and when they found out it was me got booted right away. My mistake was not reading the rules completely. They don't have the time to check all the facts out. I think their could be a lot more people cheating then not so in this case the innocent get lumped in with everyone. In a way I can understand the logic. If you get on or are on another site now, just follow the rules and you should not have a problem. Whenever I start downloading, whether I decide or not to keep it, I download it until complete and make sure I share it with all until I am at least at a one to one ratio or try to get to that ratio. In most cases I find I was happy I downloaded the whole thing because after having it I used it. Issue is ratio and sharing. Sometimes because 100 people have the completed torrent and are sharing and no one is snatching it, your ratio never gets better with it. I try to make sure when I start something that everyone is snatching at that time, I share that torrent sometimes to a 4 to 1 or higher ratio. It makes up for the others. I think the Admin. people on the site understand this. Again just follow the rules and if you have a question, just ask them before you do it if you can't find it in the FAQ's. Most if not all the admin. people are really great and want to help. Good luck.

    Thanks. Actually, I completed every download too. It will always be a mystery... I hope it doesn't happen at other sites, otherwise I really have to find out what went wrong.

    well you guys must of done something wrong to get baned, that your not telling us here, i meen when you gave them money, so something is rotten in denmark, and you say you got no warning at all on anything that you have done! any chance did you read the rules of the site? i signed up at the site and downloaded a torent and kept seeding it till i got a good ratio, the site is all right not a very big selection as far as stuff, but allright, and i have not given any money.

    I am another who have the same problem... WTF? I dont understood yet. I sent them email too but still any answer. I just tried connect to the ILT right now over the proxy server and its work. But its sucks over proxy for me:-(

    EDIT: moreover, I cant activate my new account over the proxyserver... I am totally pissed off! and IMHO too many people have the same problem and I think this is not problem with rules.

    I agree with rdmercer1. In that you probably did something wrong and maybe did not realize it. I can vouch for the giving of a donation and still getting booted if you make a mistake. I just didn't read the rules correctly. I think the Admins of the site watch out for a lot of intentional cheating going on and the system is set up that even if you make a mistake not on purpose, they don't have time to check on whether your a "good guy" so you get the boot. If you follow the rules and read them twice and watch for updates on the rules, you should not have a problem.

    SWORDZMIN - maybe they didn't think much of your CAPS LOCK abuse, or that you get breathless. I certainly got breathless reading that entire post with no punctuation in between...

    I just got booted there too, with no warning, no explanation, no way to contact them, and no recourse. I've been there a year and had a high ratio, and have always followed the rules. Reading this thread, I probably did the same thing Amadauss did. But I checked, and as far as I can find, partial downloading is NOT against any posted site rules (which are many, btw).

    The amazing thing is, downloading a few files of a torrent was recommended by an admin in the ILoveTorrents forum as a way to get your ratio up! And so now they are banning people without warning or recourse for it? Seems a bit heavy-handed to me. (Besides, what exactly are the Sample clips for, if not to download first to preview and see if you want the whole thing?)

    It's not surprising though. Sadly, it would seem that ILoveTorrents is run by a bunch of control freaks who get off by exercising their "power" capriciously. No matter; there's plenty of other torrent sites with better content that aren't run by Nazi wannabes.

    sbt44 i highley doubt that you got booted for downloading samples of the torrents, and who ever told you that downloading part's of a torrents will raise your ratio lied to you, thats the same as hit and run, i have there almost three months, and have a 5.660 ratio, never had any problems with them at all. there is always a reason why things happen, and we probley arn't geting the whole story here like the rest of the cheese and crackers anyone?
