This would complement the already available "Manually banned IP addresses" option.

It should override the IP filter: if something is blocked from the loaded IP filter, entering it here would allow it.

I guess you could also consider adding a right-click "Allow this IP" option in Execution Log/Blocked IP's. These would go directly in the proposed "Manually allowed IP addresses" list.

Sorry to say, but this is a terrible idea for the eco system. There would be no way to know that a torrent with one or very few peers will fail due to its peer(s) using whitelisting. After starting a torrent, you would have to wait quite a long time to determine if the transfer isn't actually working (due to whitelist) in contrast to the client simply bandwidth chocking and therefore transmitting at some time later. Perhaps qB or user accounts would even get banned at many sites if it added this feature as this would screw bonus point systems.

Perhaps not clear, but this was really meant to apply on the ipfilter entries only, so I am not sure how what you say is relevant. A quick way to make sure something is not blocked by the ipfilter, that's all. Ipfilters usually get updated, so instead of manually editing it every time, this whiltelist should be enough to whitelist IP's that are being blocked by an external ipfilter.

Perhaps not clear

That was it, I understand now. Perhaps the terminology "Banned IP exclusions" would be an improvement over "Manually allowed IP addresses" - which is where the relevancy came from.
