    qbt is literal fucking garbo it's the definition of hobby tier software. Can't reliably download anything once one torrent is paused. After that the whole thing shits the bed, garbo software. Only good thing about it is the search engine

    You might just be the problem tbh

    Used it for years, currently seeding 4k torrents, can stop, start, recheck and relocate torrents just fine.

    I had one bug 3 years ago where my rindex got buggered, I've kept backups of it since then and haven't had to use them.

    On the other hand you can stick on utorrent 2.2.1 and wonder how many undisclosed fuckups it contains after 7 years without updates.

    (or just use rtorrent on your seedbox etc)

    I've never had any problems with it, and really your alternatives are installing literal malware or supporting rakshasha

    If you're using linux then just use rtorrent or one of it's many gui spinoffs

    Rak is mental but his torrent solution has been dissected enough that I'd probably trust it.

    Well, currently I'd think twice about using/installing rTorrent

    The attack scenario against rTorrent is more severe than for uTorrent and Transmission because attackers can exploit vulnerable rTorrent apps with no interaction required of the user.
    (Emphasis mine)

    RIP, Personally I wasn't going to ever install anything created by Rakshasa but I thought it was sound enough

    I use Deluge, because it has a remote UI. I'm seeding 500+ torrents. But I have heard the UI craps out at ~1000 - 2000 torrents.
