A blocklist is simply a list of IP addresses to block when torrenting.

Typically, these lists consist of the IP addresses of known snoopers or malware providers.

This can – at worst – cause your download to become corrupt, but even if it isn’t that serious, your client will generally have to download the faulty segments over, hopefully from someone who isn’t spamming the torrent.

If you’re downloading something copyrighted, there is a high probability that an anti-piracy organization may be tracking your activity, which will lead to a notice from your Internet provider, and potentially the loss of your Internet account and maybe even a lawsuit.

When downloading from the Internet using the Bittorrent protocol, there are a few risks.

No matter what you download, there always exists the possibility that someone will send you junk data.

Transmission supports the P2P Plaintext Format, which is used by Peer Guardian, Bluetack, Vuze, Proto Wall, and KTorrent, and the DAT format, which was originally made popular by e Mule.

Most of the good bittorrent clients support blocklists – for example Transmission or u Torrent.

I-Blocklist has a good selection of blocklists, but many are now “subscriber-only” ( / year).
