i have been reading some of the posts and a lot of people here seem to really get on the smart aleck remarks made by those who dont have the guts to leave a name.
here is a solution, write down the tcp/ip number and keep watch when you are on the forum, then if this unknown gutless wonder ever uses his/her real name...BINGO..GOT YA
or we could just ignore old spineless and maybe it'll shrink and disappear
just an idea....have a nice day

I agree fully this is supposed to be an informational sit not a sit to yell at someone because you are having a bad day.Personnaly I think those people who do this are emotionally distressed.Must have been picked om in school.
iSP numbers are not like a finger print. With big internet providers,like AOL, Prodigy,etc. an IP # is worthless for tracking anybody, as they assign each user a new and different number every time the user logs in.
A novel idea might be to ignore those senseless, irritating posts, and turn the other cheek. Life is too precious to waste even a single bit of it on a-holes anyways.
NUKE EM! Especially the period guy......lol
I just wanted to see if this works? I will be right back.
I checked some of my old posts and the numbers are different. The farther I go back the more difference there is. Even these two numbers are different on this post. The first six digets are the same is this the part you are talking about? This is interesting. Thanks!
SHEESH! I've checked out this topic with several knowledgeable contributors, including Ken. All of them say that we can not ID a person by using ANY of TCP/IP numbers. I think I have to agree. I thought I had a fellow identified by the first two sets of numbers, but later saw the same two sets associated with TWO other people. I really don't think this works. Too bad though. There are a few "contributors" we would probably all like to know the name of.
The ones that poke around too try to pick a fight.My first four numbers have been the same so far.Oh, 63.64...good point!
i thought that once we were assigned a number it was always the same every time we signed on. at least i learned something new today. any who like i said it was just an idea. plan B... ignore the old "roids" and maybe they will shrink up and go away, one can hope, can't they. LOL
I've just taken them off my Christmas card list! Wait til this Christmas when they DON'T get a card from me...that'll sure get em! Boy I can just see em, waitin' by the mailbox, and waitin', and waitin',......Gosh! How funny is that!? I'm peeing myself here!
Oh! Oh! I know, I know! Whenever I see em leave a post, I'm gonnga STICK MY TONGUE OUT AT EM! YEAH! That'll show em too! Phew! They sure won't know what hit em!
Lol'ing all the way home,
Now, I am really getting worried! No sign of him,yet....lol
I think the anal orifice known only as (.) might be a SHE. Guys don't have periods...eh? (LOL)
But, not thee!Referring to another response,Sorry!
A couple reasons why you can't positively track the user by IP address:
If you are using a dialup service for your Internet access your IP address will change almost every time you log on. Most times you can find out the ISP they use but that is about it.
It is very easy to spoof your IP address. Meaning you can bounce your traffic through another computer making it seem like you are coming from that computer, yet you are just using the other machine as a relay.
Keeping in mind the difficulty of tracking the individual down, it is probably best that you just don't respond to flames. Some people live to come in forums to stir things up, (commonly called trolls). Generally speaking, don't feed a troll and he will go away.
A while back I had someone send me a virus, they thought they could hide. Well if you have the bucks there is a program that can trace to the originating computer. This program calls it pinging. This then supplies you with the numberrs of all servers and a complete routing print out. SOmetimes it does stop at a firewall, but for another $175.00 it can ping thru the fire walls. For more info on this program go to WWW.ZDTV.com
we know each other.only say this so you'll know i'll pay.
i'll give you the $175.00 if you tell me who this is.
