Posted:This can only happen to those who are unregistered as Diana is...correct? Those of us who are registered automatically come up due to the passwordy program thing, or am I mistaken?Was there anything said that needs to be corrected? I really respect Diana alot, as I imagine several people do (which is probably why someone tried to pass themselves off as her...a double edged compliment), but was thier any misinformation that was passed along under Diana's name that needs to be clarified?It really sucks that people feel so unimportant in their identities that they must steal someone else's.

Posted:PSM - UBB has the option of recording the IP address. I had turned this off as some people were concerned about this being recorded.Pele - Yes the best thing to do is register on the bulletin board. Unfortunately Diana does not wish to be registered. I respect her wishes and decided upon the IP option in order to help protect her identity.Registration is good cause we get to know who are the "gas-bags"

and be aware that you are halfway through to 100 posts yourself

- what was that? you are the administrator? what a lousy excuse Malcolm ts ts ts

well i could live with the major gas-bag label i suppose - on the other hand i could register again and start from scratch because after the 100 posts milestone (!!!) it's not such fun anymore

Considering a lot of people on the net now use broadband and connections which are transparently proxied/cached, is recording IP addresses for web pages really that effective? There's far better/more reliable ways to track users on the net



All you can really do with an IP is tell if the country is correct, and that'll only catch out people trying to be malicious who don't know about using proxies in other countries to route their connection
