The goal is to vizualize the good and bad
behavior of other peers plus provide insight
into your own goodness or badness. The focus is to stimulate
seeding and giving away of bandwidth instead of
leeching on others.

watching television in real-time requires
people to contribute. Thus seed several files and
remain online for a long duration.
A possible course of action is that you have to
earn the right to do Video on Demand.
