    how many out there use IP blocking tools like PeerGuardian or Protowall?
    or just share download files without?

    a firewall does not count

    (where are the poll options??)

    It just depends on what u are doing. Just use them when you are visiting/ dling from public torrent sites, ect. I've blocked the MPAA a few times.

    I tend to make sure it is running when DLing a new popular release
    but if it comes to DLing a budget film or a 3 year old game that has a lack of seeds i make the exeption of turning if off for a little while to see if i get faster DL

    I have seen lots of companys popup Sony, RIAA, MPAA, universal pictures and so on

    well what really happens is when an Ad is blocked on the page the browsers attempts to connect to the blocked host (timeout is like 10 secs)
    after that it retrys (3 times in most cases)
    soo in all you get 30 second lag :S

    to completely avoid any of that click "allow HTTP"
