I'm talking to you uTorrent 1.7, bittornado 3.17 and below, BitComet (uberleechers' client of choice), BitLord, Mainline 4.22 and up. I mean, I wonder how many users just give up on BT because their client sucks, and they can't finish downloads properly (Mainline 4.22 and up) or can't upload after completion (non-encryption w/Concast)? They might figure, "oh well, I've tried my best, I've forwarded my ports, BT just doesn't seem to work for me, I quit." But there is nothing I can do about it, except try to help when people post here. Maybe instead of having a list of RECOMMENDED clients in the FAQs, there should be a list of ALLOWED clients.
I have thought about disallowing some clients here, but have decided that the majority of our users are using good reliable clients and so I haven't felt like going to the effort to change the code to ban the others.
