Banned from some trackers, for ratting, apparently!

Some say 1.6.1 was the last "safe" version, others say 1.6, others say that it's time to go for an alternative.

Maybe it's just paranoia, but it's paranoia that could end uTorrent as as a useful client in many circles, especially after the sneaky way that Bittorrent Inc. bought it in to sidestep the open source obligations of their original client.
The banning was due to a misinterpretation of the changes introduced in v1.7 and 1.7.1 on the part of tracker admins.
The "ratting" was due to a bug introduced in v1.7.
- Change: Only report downloaded, verified good pieces in tracker announce
And this was fixed in the 1.7.1 build.
- Fix: Invalid download amounts being reported to trackers for >4GB torrents
Its already been unbanned at atleast one of the trackers.

For more info
1.7.0 is banned everywhere, and 1.7.1 is currently under heavy scrutiny.

And of course the recorded suspect pings have nothing to do with the added Multicast feature, as the new uTorrent developers claim (Ludde does not belong to the dev team at all anymore!).
