Not to hijack a post - but I had some related questions around this link/post.

Does this advice apply if your torrent client can and does use a proxy
properly?  If so, why?

Does this advice apply if your OS is able to use a system proxy to
route all traffic through the proxy?  If so, why?

If the answer to either of these is that the tor proxy only proxies
TCP traffic, does the answer change if you use a VPN?
