Default [Q] Autostarts

Question: If we use a program like autostarts to simply prevent an app from ever starting, is this good enough? Basically, I just don't want the blaot to run and drain the battery and available RAM; I don't especially care if the APK remains and takes up storage space. If we just prevent it from running, does this eliminate the possibilty of problems upon deletion? what do you guys think? What is the general opinion of Autostarts?

It seems like it has the potential to clean alot of the Android bloatware and loosen things up a bit! I'd try it out. Some of the things you can disable i'd love to disable but I think I want to wait until there is a recovery JUST in case.. But if you think it makes your phone faster but safer, then yeah it is enough!
