It's not so much that I want to limit my uploading, I simply prefer to upload to people who are uploading themselves. If people want to 100% leech, they can either compensate me for my bandwidth or go to hell.

Admittedly, I don't pay for my own bandwidth, my dad does. But, philosophically, I hate leeching. If you have limited bandwidth on mobile, I guess that's okay, I have no way to tell. But, ultimately, people need to balance things out in some way.
