Peer guardian 2 lists not updating

Q: Is peerguardian protecting me on piratebay, and are the movies hash files?

A:peerguardian is ok in theory, but I don't think it's really giving you any type of security.

One or more of my lists require an I-BLOCKLIST subscription. Is it the recording industry putting pressure on someone? I just installed a new install of peerguardian on a fresh ubuntu 16.04.

This is the error I get when my Peer Block starts at boot time. Everything installs and updates, but for some reason its not blocking anything and i can't figure it out.

Peer Guardian is a free and open source IP address blocking software programs capable of blocking incoming and outgoing addresses. It is usefull when on P2P networks because it blocks the RIAA, MPAA and other evile empires from seeing you. # # You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License # along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software # Foundation, Inc., 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA # testdescription # #CONFIGURATION # Make sure PG_ETC points to the directory where # you want to put your downloaded blocklists.

Media Defender-Defenders said that they hoped that the email leak will prove to be a viable tool to protect against anti-P2P efforts. After the email leak, a text file that compiles the complete IP (Internet Protocol) list Media Defender used while dropping fake files onto various P2P sites and networks was posted.The original Peer Guardian (1.0) was programmed in Visual Basic and quickly became popular among P2P users despite blocking only the common TCP protocol and being known for high RAM and CPU usage when connected to P2P networks.By December 2003, it had been downloaded 1 million times.
