    whenever we post the forum marks our ip address in our posts and only admins/mods can see it.

    I'd like to know there are any other records that can be used to id users on this forum besides ips in our posts.

    server logs? and is it deleted? or archived on a periodic basis?

    I only use vpn connections off campus. The ip I have would be one of a vpn server that I use from a few other states

    However I do use http proxies from time to time but none that are transparent.

    Maybe since your just a "member" like the rest of us they dont have to disclose that.

    Become a mod/admin and find out.

    James Bond Rulez is paranoid about IP address he loves them and is obsessed with finding out what ppl know everywhere hes been

    he literately sits there all day with net stat on to find out who's trying to fuck him up

    that letter you got from your ISP must have really got to your head.

    NTL - my ISP use their own proxy servers as a matter of course.

    For an entirely different reason from security of the user, but what the heck, it works for me.

    I also sometimes use an anonymous proxy (not here, no point) so it is double safe.

    Chill and relax, you are doing nothing wrong posting on this forum. Your IP here is of no interest to anyone.

    Well, do you answer such posts as:

    Where do you come from?

    What is your Job?

    Whats your Zip/Postcode?

    Post your Pic here....



    If yes, you can probably be identified..... however I refuse to believe that anyone could then hold the board responsible in that scenario

    No one has access to the IP address' except Mods/Admin; and has been stated, an IP address is useless by itself as no one is doing anything illegal.

    Even posting hashes arent illegal....you are describing a file, not saying where it is.


    Everything that we come across that can be used to identify you apart from stupidity in the above type of post (which would only identify you if ou answered them all BTW) is edited as we come across them... eg Posted IP address', Private FTP's etc etc... inc any illegal stuff.

    This type of editing is as much to protect the members concerned as it is to protect the board. There is nothing in any rule saying you cant post your IP address for example, however i would feel i was letting the members down, and im sure the other Mods/Admin feel the same way, if i left the stuff there for the world to view...
