Pretty soon http://john.bitsurge.net/public/biglist.p2p.gz is likely to disappear anyway because my host is discontinuing the service plan that made hosting this file affordable. Even now, with it being way past its prime, it's still quite a lot of network egress per month.
Even if my hosting costs weren't changing, as this script gets more and more out of date it becomes less and less responsible for me to keep letting people rely on it. Maybe if their clients start failing to download they will update their configs to point to something more recent. There are lots of alternatives.

hi
sadly now the link is down , is there a mirror?
thanks

Use iplists.firehol.org or build the list yourself. I actually provide a iblocklist free list on my mirror: https://mirror.codebucket.de/transmission/

Dear everyone,

The file is no longer hosted at john.bitsurge.net and never will be again. It languished unmaintained for a very long time anyway. My suggestion to you is to run the script(s) yourself now and then. Anyone hosting iblocklists lists will eventually be asked to stop.
