Anyone ????? This program is suppose to block lists of bad IP addresses .....Most use it for P2P sites....I am interested in using it for blocking IP addresses that are known for hackers,spammers,maleware,adware, porn etc sites... Someone has to know something about it besides the PeerBlock and Iblock list forums....

I don't think you should jump to that conclusion or assign any other meaning other than 'not yet answered'.

Agreed no replies means just that. No experience with it or do not feel they have enough knowledge to give an opinion. As two possible explanations.

I fall into the latter category. I tried peerguardian and hated it. Far to complex for the type of browsing I did and skill level at the time. With the bad experience of the prior version and increased skill and access to information and knowledgeable people now. Out comes and a new and allegedly improved application of Peerblock. I have no desire to try it. Therefore I don't have any opinion or experience. Hence why I had not replied. Why give you biased probably incorrect information?
