With utorrent i often found that i was seeding to 2 or 3 people when only one person on Smithstorrents was downloading, i think i've now come up with a way of fixing this.
In utorrent if you click on the torrent you're seeding and go to trackers there are
[DHT]
[Local Peer Discovery]
[Peer Exchange]
If these are enabled then it will seed to people not registered with the site (somehow) so i always disable them now.

A way to prevent this is to mark all torrents with the private flag, which causes BitTorrent clients not to use DHT/PEX with these torrents.
As far as I know, it should be able to enable this in the tracker properties somewhere, though I've never used TorrentPier, so I don't know for sure.

I use utorrent too and my preferences looks like that:

This way I never seed to people not registered with the site :)

Peer Exchange doesn't sound very private though, doesn't that allow seeding to people not registered?

This feature makes it possible to find another members of exchange without direct request to tracker and it happens only among seeders from this site. But if you disable this feature it hardly has effect on something except scheme of seeds and peers in your utorrent client and you can disable Peer Exchange if you want it.
