It blocks "known bad" computers from accessing yours, for example governments, corporate entities, and those flagged for anti-p2p activities. You can also attach log/conf files, images of screenshots, or zip files to better describe your problem.
Peer Block maintains the functionality of the original Peer Guardian 2 program, but includes fixes for various issues that remain unaddressed in the latest (~3 year old) version of PG2. Make sure to read the "Known Issues" sticky to see if your problem's already known (and maybe resolved), and also for what we need from you if we're going to be able to help! You can also post and report any problems you're having with the forum software itself or if you have any ideas on how to improve it, or just generally post any discussions you have not specifically related to Peer Block Support.
