#3697 closed Enhancement (fixed)

make blocklist URL configurable

Description

Hosting the blocklist on transmissionbt.com has several problems:

  • We need to reduce the bandwidth used on transmissionbt.com by the blocklist.
  • Lack of configurability -- several users have wanted to use their own blocklist.
  • Having a single, non-configurable blocklist might wrongly give users the impression that we've reviewed and/or endorse the contents of that blocklist.
  • Having a single, non-configurable blocklist might wrongly give users the impression that the blocklist they're getting is a "silver bullet" for blocking out peers from spyware/malware addresses.

We can address all of these issues by making the blocklist configurable and not recommending any default blocklist.

Are you guys open to the idea of having the update interval be configured by the user?
