Using Bittornado's encryption worked for a long time for me, but I got rid of Concast about a month ago. The post dates are at the top of each post. On 8-26-2007 Igerard reports that it does help somewhat, but I guess Sept. 1st is the clampdown? Encryption has been cracked for months. And they aren't doing this to all Comcast users. Just users in areas where their bandwidth is maxxed out I would guess.

At the very least uTorrent 1.7 messes with your stats, lots of people have reported that it has. Another guy wrote that he couldn't initially seed properly with a torrent file created with uTorrent 1.7 (the upload would start and stop). Why is uTorrent closed source? Are there any other closed source BT clients? It may be "bullshit" that uTorrent spies on you, but it is suspicious that the developer signed a deal with an anti-p2p company, then sold out to BitTorrent Inc.
