Please don't give this kind of advice.  Somebody might think you know what
you're speaking about.

Your list includes Bittorrent, which is a highly optimised protocol for
sending massive amounts of data.  Running BT over the tor network is
considered as an abuse of the network.

Your list doesn't include for example 22 (ssh), which is absolutely
essential for many of us.
