It would have literally *exactly* the same effect on your ratio; why would the site's staff want to code such a useless option?

Sorry, but that's actually wrong.

1Gb upload, 10Gb download, ratio = 0.1

Let's pretend you remove 1Gb.

1Gb upload, 9Gb download, ratio = 0.11

Let's now assume you further remove 5Gb.

1Gb upload, 4Gb download, ratio 0.25

Now let's look at the system we currently have in place.

1Gb upload, 10Gb download, ratio 0.1

Add 1Gb upload

2Gb upload, 10Gb download, ratio 0.2

And now, a further 5Gb

7Gb upload, 10Gb download, ratio 0.7

So which do you think is the better option?

And these are just small numbers. The bigger the number, the more enormous the discrepancy.

For example:100Gb upload, 1000Gb download, ratio 0.1

Remove 5Gb

Upload 100Gb, download 995Gb, ratio = 0.10050251256

Instead, add 5Gb to upload

Upload 105Gb, download 1000Gb, ratio = 0.105
