i know that feeling specially if its a small tracker where there aren't a lot of seeders =/ i dont stop seeding till the torrent is deleted in small torrent sites, but i still find hard to keep up my ratio in sites like oink.
Well I'm glad some people agree. But I bet for every one of you there are 5 leechers out there.

No, egoistic, meaning '(a person who believes in) a doctrine that individual self-interest is the valid end of all actions with or without exaggerated feelings of self-importance'. In other words he thinks its okay to cheat on a torrent site because he got what he wanted and that's all that is important. And he was bragging about it hence the exaggerated feelings of self importance.
Egotistic is closer to just being full of yourself.
