Usefulness/purpose Of Ipfilters - Basics Of Torrenting


Recommended Posts

OK - hypothetically...

1. New matrix 7 movie came out and I was seeding it.
2. But in all of my wisdom I had an ipfilter.dat with many IPs blocked.
3. An FBI agent joins the swarm and asks a tracker for a list of peers.
4. He gets the list with me as a seed
5. Tries to connect to me but my ipfilter does not let him as he is on my blacklist

What is the point of ipfilters if the FBI agent sees MY ip and sees that I am seeding the file that he requested? Isn't it a definite proof of me being illegal?

Would appreciate if some knowledgeable individual would enlighten me regarding the indepth torrent workings or confirm that I got it right and ipfilters are useless :)
