Seeding is what your torrent download client does after it finishes downloading the game. It's re-uploading the files for others that are downloading, so that they get a faster speed. If nobody were seeding, the torrent would be un-downloadable.

Leechers are the users just downloading. Sometimes they don't leave their torrent client running or the torrent information in their computer, and that's not exactly a good thing, as it's like saying you're borrowing something from a friend, and then moving away, taking their new game with you. It's known that people don't always know the etiquette/understand it though, so it's not a big deal usually. However, now that you know... Razz

Does that answer your question well enough?
