Peer Guardian giving me weird messages?

Hey guys, I decided to start using Peer Guardian cause I hear it's good for privacy, and after a few weeks I'm getting some weird results :(
Ok I'm really getting freaked out. I understand that PG doesn't let anything access your comp coming through dangerous ports (hackers, ISP, etc). So why is the "Embassy of the Check Republic" trying to access my comp, WTF!
Help me understand these readings guys, this just looks to weird.
P.S. Oh, and I don't have any Check Republic contacts in my Skype (which was on during the snapshot), and I live in the US.

Skype is peer to peer tech, you pass info for other users and they do so for you. Probably just someone in the Czech embassy in Latvia using skype.....

I wouldn't worry about it. Peer Guardian is just a port blocker. Firewalls have port blockers, so you see logs like your screenshot all the time. Most likely someone was doing a port scan of your external IP address. Peer Guardian is showing that it's catching it! :)

Why would anyone want to do a "port scan?" D:

For whatever reason they do. I briefly ran an ftp server on a desktop machine where I had a static IP from my ISP. I got my first attempted logon within 5 minutes of booting and once every 5-10 mins thereafter.

Thank you, that really alleviates my worries about some Czech Intelligence agency investigating into me ^^
But you gotta wonder, why would someone that far away try to log on?

It's what hackers do. There are "hacker sweat-shops" where people do nothing but hack sites. I help with a phpBB forum, and people are always creating accounts and posting porn links. A lot of times it's actually bots, not real people, doing it.

Scoops - this helps on a forum i help run

http://www.stopforumspam.com/

It is a list of IP addresses form spammers, we check new sign ups and ban them if they are on the list. The last month it has been chinese IPs using gmail addresses for some reason, but sometimes it is Americans using hotmail, it is like their are spammer fashions!

Ntpd is normal (timeserver). The rest of the gunk in the last image seem to be from emule or other p2p apps.

PeerGuardian by default prevents Macs from keeping good time.

You can turn it off a few times a day, or use a different timeserver.
