Uhhh... how about.. No?

If you're receiving less pieces then someone else, it's because you're 
sending SLOWER then them, and everyone is (rightfully) sending to him 
and not to you.  He has more upload capacity, so he gets to download the 
file first. 

Nick's observation is totally correct..you're favoring peers that don't 
contribute to the swarm.
