That could possibly be because Openbittorent was forced to shut down on Friday. Uploaders should be adding multiple trackers to their torrents for this very reason. Also, be sure you have DHT and Peer Exchange enabled in your client.

It's not within our power to ban particular clients, that's not how it works.

What leads you to think that your client has been banned?
Are you having problems downloading?

That will be the reason.

You may be able to find other trackers to add to your torrents. Also make sure you have DHT enabled if your client allows it.

You can keep your torrent.

Just activate DHT or add http://tracker.publicbt.com/announce to the trackerlist of your torrent.

maybe your older transmission not support dht?
It should be by the main settings (near privacy/blockinglist).

I can add/delete trackers for each running torrent in the property (i dont have an english version, so i dont know the correct names of menus)
