Could someone explain me the meaning of "banned" under the tab "Peers" when downloading or uploading a file? I'm sure it's explained somewhere on the forum site but I must not be looking at the right place to get the explanation. Thanks for the help.

For some reason the seeder has banned your IP address and only they would know the reason why

Thank you Rhubarb. That's what I thought too but I would understand being banned if I'm downloading a file. What I can't figure out is who would want to ban a peer who is uploading a file for you?  It's illogical wanting to download a file and banning the peer who has it available for download.  I'm puzzled. Thanks anyway.

OK - here's an example: I'm downloading a file in sequential mode and also uploading at the same time. Peer 'X' has an upload in an early part of the file and is also downloading other parts but I want that segment (it may be part of a multi-file download), so I ban X temporaily so that another peer can transfer that particular part and, where I might set the ban for 5 minutes, it couold be set by someone else for a longer period
