Only admins can see your IP Address on this site.
But that IP, 192.168.1.100 is your private network IP address, what your computer uses to communicate with the router.  It is not the IP address that the world sees.  Most users here have local IP addresses in the 192.168.1.100 range, it is the default one for home networks.  Knowing that does not give any users any idea of where you are.

As far as those AP2P blocks, those programs work by blocking very wide bands of IP addresses, many of the times legit sources get blocked by them just because their IP addresses are close.  It doesn't necessarily mean anything bad.

If you are truly worried about getting caught, then don't do the activities that are illegal :)

WOW...
I'm relieved now :) i just realized the difference when i saw my IP address was different from what i read as the blocked things destinations -_-"
and about the legit sources thing, let me correct ya, not sometimes, ALL the time :p it blocks AOL, Google, imageshack, lotsa stuffs at times T_T  but thanks for relieving my stress :D
EDIT:i just realized something else =/
the IP address it goes to is similar to what Tirith named, but not exact...
Most users here have local IP addresses in the 192.168.1.100 range

Yes, the last number just differentiates your different PCs/Devices.

Like my router is 192.168.1.1

192.168.1.100 is my PC
192.168.1.101 is my brother's PC
192.168.1.102 is the PC in my living room
192.168.1.103 is my laptop
192.168.1.104 is my PSP
etc, etc, etc.

When ever my PC tries to connect to a 192.168.1.XXX number, it looks on the local network.  If it tries to connect to another IP subnet, for example www.romulation.net, it looks to the gateway (router) and the router directs the info out to the internet.  The router is the "buffer" between your local network and the internet.

anything 192.168. cannot be routed on the internet, routers will drop packets from those IPs. Same goes for 10.x.x.x, 172.16.x.x, 127.x.x.x (cannot be routed at all) and 192.254.x.x
