BitTorrent (Mainline) version 5.0 to be banned

It seems that BitTorrent version 5.0.7 does not want to play well with the tracker. This has been going on for a while, but as we get more peers on the tracker, it has become more of an issue. It is mainly v5.0.7 that is causing problems, but other 5.0 versions have pounded the tracker as well. So, starting Monday October 29, BitTorrent v5.0 will be banned from our tracker.

Other suggested clients are in the FAQ.

Highly suggested:

Both of those clients play well with just about every tracker. Also, if you really like BitTorrent, then get an older version (like version 3.4.2 which is popular)

edit: I will not be banning version 6.0 at this point since I have not noticed there being any problems with it yet.
