Why would certain torrent trackers not let me upload?

"When I download torrents from certain trackers (usually ones with set ratio limits), I can't seem to upload much, even when download is blazingly fast. On other trackers (sadly - the ones with no ratio), after I finish downloading (and even while downloading), I manage to get up to 30KB/s upload, and pass 1.0 ratio in no time.
Why would this happen? Am I throtelled back by some trackers for some reason?"

On trackers with ratio limits, users are usually more keen on keeping their ratio high, so they download new files as fast as possible upon release so they can be one of the first users seeding and raise their ratio more. Then regular users like yourself download the file and have trouble seeding. This is because most of the users already have the file downloaded, and the ones that are downloading have plenty of seeds, so each seeder will only need to contribute a smaller upload speed. The tracker is not throttling you whatsoever though, just jump on new torrents faster!
