The BitTorrent file-sharing program uTorrent contains a feature that lets you ban IP addresses that are sharing a particular file you are downloading. If you see that a user who is helping share a file is not contributing in a way that you expect or you don't want that user to connect to your computer, you can ban him to keep him from connecting again. Resetting the bans on a particular file in uTorrent erases any bans you made for that file, allowing all IP addresses to connect to your computer.
