I read somewhere that utorrent actually is put out by people that will track your usage. I will see if i can find the link on this. I think it was on Phonix labs maker of peer gaurdian.
The µTorrent fiasco
March 7th, 2006 by phrosty
You may have noticed that PG2 started blocking utorrent.com. This is because µTorrents developer recently licensed his backend technology to a company known for monitoring P2P networks.
Today we confirmed that it is for a new content distribution system - something explicitly stated in the contract, meaning they are not allowed to use it for monitoring P2P users or anything else.
So is helping out a company known for P2P monitoring morally wrong? Maybe. But everyone needs to eat. The licensing had no malicious intent toward P2P users, and it does not affect µTorrent in any way.
Yet it is still blocked. This is because we are still silently redirecting all of your list downloads to our friends at Bluetack while we get our own lists ready. Adding or removing things from their lists is something we have no control over.
Fortunately, we have been preparing to launch our own lists for about a week now! Within the next few days PG2 should automatically start pulling the lists from Blocklist.org - no work on your end required.
(By the way, this sort of thing is what Blocklist.org is meant for - go rate utorrent.com if you want it blocked or allowed
