Of course, #$%& has no clue how BitTorrent works. It's nearly pointless
to route just the tracker callbacks through Tor, and routing the actual
data over Tor would overload the network. I don't blame them for making
it easy to block BitTorrent traffic; there are other filesharing tools
which are a better fit if anonymity is a priority (Freenet, GNUNet, etc).
