Are you talking about the default lists?

The Bluetack lists are no longer maintained. The administrator of the bluetack.co.uk forum where the lists were discussed and maintained died last year. The forum kept going for a while but is now gone.

The last versions of the Bluetack lists, and others, are still being distributed via the I-Blocklist site. However, that site is run by someone who has apparently decided, without explanation, to stop letting PeerBlock access any lists without a subscription.

You can still download the free lists from [www.iblocklist.com] in your web browser (ignoring any apparently bogus or premature warnings about exceeding your limits), then unzip them and then load them into PeerBlock manually. This is pointless, of course, if the lists you want are no longer being updated.

If the site is specifically discriminating about Peerblock, the solution is obvious, isn't it? Release a new version of Peerblock that spoofs a common browser user-agent. Have it pretend to be a recent version of IE or Firefox to the iBlocklist servers, and they can't discriminate anymore.
