PeerBlock is better as an IP Blocker, rather than protecting your Torrent habits.
So, is there any use left in PeerBlock? (short answer: no...) Here's what I think: • /r/torrents
The Truth About Peerblock (And why a VPN is way more useful)
  • Blocks too many peers
  • Impossible to block all malicious / spying IP addresses
  • Doesn't encrypt your data
  • Doesn't hide your IP address

I agree it's not airtight but it's a great help with keeping 'bad peers' out the door.
A VPN does a better job indeed but there is a higher cost...
