A person who sucks and sucks.. they use you and then they move on when IT doesnt need you anymore or when IT doesnt see you on its radar....

you normally give them a kind helping hand out of pity because they are lonely and they seem harmless, but they will take advantage of you and in the end you dont even get a ....Thanks for all your help!
This is how they appear....

I dont have anybody here....i need help... without you i would be lost, i was supposed to meet a friend here but he stood me up so many times...
(Ohh dont worry Amanda, <<even though i dont even know who you are and i feel sorry for you...>> i'll help you find a place to stay, introduce you to people and i will be around if you need me, i know you are new in town and i will show you my hospitality )
Reeeeeally? ok then...I need thisss.... can i borrow that.... can i stay in your place for a while like.... every single day, can you come with me to do this, im sick do you have something, i ran out of sugar can i....
YES, ofcourse, anytime <<i would say>> until you finally realise, WTF you life sucking bitch!!

LEECH ALERT<<when you realise you are being invaded by leeches....keep them as far away from you as you can, when they come over, dont answer the door, when they ask you out, make up something like your toenail hurts and you cant go out, remember out of their sight and out of their minds, so stay off the places they normally visit, and they wont disturb you anymore, hopefully they will get the message and will probably find another naive person to suck on>>

Learn your lesson, and dont let it happen again!
Remember Karma will get their fucking sorry asses!!

To solely download from a peer-to-peer network, without any intent and/or capability to redistribute files accordingly. This lack of sharing is often due to inanely selfish motives, but is occasionally the product of a implausibly slow upstream transfer rate or lack of content to share. Possesses highly negative connotations.
<SuperiorityComplex511> Share or die; no leeching.

Originally meaning to be able to download without uploading. FPT sites many years ago would often have ratios where people would get a certain amount of downloadable bytes for every byte they uploaded. Sites that did not have ratios were said to be "leech" sites because you could download all you wanted without having to upload. Now a days most FTP sites are "leech" anyway. The term now more refers to any individual who is often into the piracy scene and does nothing but download files for cracked versions of software, movies, music and so on. They do not share what they have downloaded and don't provide help to others looking for certain files.
"Don't leech the entire folder asshole! That is like 200 gigs worth of shit. Let somebody else get on the server for once!"
