Why on some downloads does it say " 1 or more i2p peers see privacy view? What does it mean?
I2P is an anonymous overlay network that can be installed/enabled by the 'Privacy View' (one of the sub-tabs at the bottom Library). The message means that one or more I2P peers have been detected for the download.

ok still finds it this a bad thing? Like can that person get access to my computer or anything?
No, it isn't a bad thing. I means that if Vuze were to connect to that peer to send/receive data for your download then your Vuze client doesn't know the real address of them and theirs don't know your real address - i.e. the connection is anonymous. So it is actually the opposite of what you are worrying about.
Is this related to the little vertical color-striped cylinders in the Seeds and Peers columns for that torrent? 

(Never seen those cylinders before, and when I hovered I saw the '1 or more i2p peers see privacy view?' text box, which brought me to this thread.)
