Any kind of ip filtering is unsafe (this includes the likes of peerguardian, safepeer, protowall, etc etc etc). It helps, but it is not perfect. All that's needed to counter it is to use an IP which is not blocked yet.

If you want maximum security, BitTorrent is not for you.

The only 100% solution is

0.0.0.0 - 255.255.255.255

or, for pg/pw format:

all:0.0.0.0-255.255.255.255

:P

then just exclude IP addresses of people and sites you know and trust :P
