Noticed 2 days ago that I cannot update the P2P list when trialing this program.

If BLM was around back then, then depending on the list it used, it would've blocked WP too.
As they say, PG2 (or BLM for that matter) is only as good as the lists it uses.
Searching the threads and forums suggest disabling it, allowing http, updating, re-enabling etc... Anyone out there aware of this issue and advise a solution or has a new URL to direct the P2P list at?
And the best thing about PG2 is that it isn't just a text file updater for P2P apps like BLM, it's a network tool that I can keep running even after shutting down my P2P app, which depending on your lists, can save you valuable bandwidth and protection from bad sites when browsing the web. PG2 blocked whirlpool about 5 years ago because of an over-zealous blocklist, as did Protowall (from the same people who brought you BLM) because they were using the same list produced by Bluetack.
There has been some issues with people having PG setup to download the normal blocklists from the PG links as well as the lists from uk when in fact they are the same lists.
Apparently the PG links are the same servers as Bluetack (if I've been following correctly on Blutack's and PG's sites/forums).
