Question about Peerblock and Torrent download protection


So from my understanding this Peerblock is supposed to keep my IP address well hidden so I can safely download Torrents?

I think I read where you said it just keeps you safe as in the way you need to be faster then the other guy when a bear is chasing y’all. So I’m safer than the other people that share the content? Do you mean that as in when uTorrent does the seeding process to help others get the download faster or as in uploading the content on Pirate Bay for others to grab? Also I see it says 2010 is this software still as safe to use I see they don’t update as often unless that’s just the site? Do I need HTML on or not?
