    What site are you getting the torrent from?
    What engine are you using. utorrent,vuze etc?

    just make sure you use peer guardian or something similar when using torrents.

    Its been a while since I used torrents.. but just protect yourself

    peer guardian doesn't protect you in the slightest

    so what protects you?? peer guardian used to show all the links it was blocking from Sony/warner brothers etc..

    Its many years since I used torrents but peer guardian used to be the main software to use with torrents.

    Ideally you want to use usenet but if you can't....

    As a start use.
    rarbg.com
    extratorrent.com
    thepiratebay.cr/
    For finding your torrents.

    Use utorrent for your engine and configure I2P on it.

    If your ISP has blocked the above sites use TOR browser to get on them.
    OR a vpn / proxy addon for your browser.

    Just a word of warning the new version of utorrent is a pain in the butt.
    Look for a torrent of version 2.2.1 with DHT patched.
    And turn off auto update.

    It's an add on to disguise your IP on torrents.
    geti2p.net/en/

    oldpiratebay.org is my go to site whilst the proper pirate bay is still down

    Thanks but it is a proxy type of thing?

    So will it not slow down torrents?

    Proxy ish.. You just open a port on your router to allow traffic.
    I get full speed but my internet is only 3MB ADSL anyway.

    Anyone know a alternative to blocklist manager?

    searching for "2.2.1 with DHT patched" in google only brings up torrent sites.
    Rather avoid software off torrent sites.
    Any other link to 2.2.1 with DHT patched?

    nothing protects you from your ISP seeing what you are downloading via torrents hence newsgroups are the way to go.

    or use a VPN

    thanks chocci. useful to know. I get my files from file hosts using Real Debrid..cheap and works most times.
    Always used to use torrents/IRC before the file hosts all in 1 websites popped up. Wont be long before they are closed as well.
