I publicly apologize for mistakenly revealing the IP address of a member

Post by Ben Mothafuckin' Reilly on Thu Jul 03, 2014 10:46 pm

Earlier this evening, in order to show that one member here was masquerading as someone else, I posted a screen capture of the evidence.

In a failure on my part to think it through with the care it deserved, I inadvertently displayed the IP address of this member for a span of no more than nine minutes before my mistake was brought to my attention and I corrected it.

I apologize for the error.

"Posts that include personal details about a particular member in abusive fashion are not allowed, and members who abusively post personal information about others may be subject to administrative action, including a permanent ban, at the administrators' discretion."


Does that mean you will ban yourself for breaking the "no personal info" clause or use your "discretion" and decide the rules don't apply this time??

It just shows that mistakes can be made in the heat of the moment: BY ANYONE.

LOL, I apparently still have some grovelling to do ...

Speaking of the "heat of the moment," that edds mentioned, smelly -- if I could ban myself I would have been long gone from this site by now, asking someone to let me back on Smile

I think you will find that's the whole reason you have access to that information so that multiple ID`s can be discovered and exposed ,indeed as an administrator that is your job and not something to apologize for

i think the whole forum should thank you for bringing this despicable mascaraid to our attention with verifiable evidence in support

Nah, funny enough I don't actually care for my username, but I've been going by it so long that I don't feel like I should change it.

I think you'll find his job is to provide a safe, friendly environment for people to discuss things.

Not seek revenge, vendetta's, exposing people and whatever else you can think up for people you or he doesn't get on with or had a spat with 5 years ago!

I think you'll find your little plan failed, so hard luck. Maybe you were the one who sent the pm's to try and make this site look unsafe. After the way you are going on, that's a thought. Already told you, look on the map, your IP is there, forumotionn sets it up that way.

You can't see the ip address as a number, you can however zoom in and see exactly where it is.

As I said, you can't see it as a number, but you can zoom in and see exactly where it is.

In any case, your IP address can be coming from anywhere, it's you ISP that is important.

Sassy said the IPs were on the map? I know mine is static and I was a bit worried so I went to look, but I can't see them. And I'm shown miles away from where I always show anyway  scratch

Yep, you can see the location of it, which again, can be anywhere, which is why it wasn't important that Ben did the ip address, it's your ISP that can trace you.

Think that's right isn't it KD?

Then you should remember that all the IP address does is gives you the location that is on the map.

No that's not true Sassy. If anyone has my IP address it drills right down to the street I live in, which is why I am so concerned you say its shown as standard on the map on here. checked and the map is wrong anyway. But I can't see an IP address like you can.

Yes and you can look up info about an IP
But you did say the IP address was in the map, not a location is on the map.

Location and IP are two different things??

Then you should remember that all the IP address does is gives you the location that is on the map.

Yes and you can look up info about an IP
But you did say the IP address was in the map, not a location is on the map.

Location and IP are two different things??

The IP is the location of the signal.

IP,address and a location on no map ie a city, are two different things.

Anyway I'm off too.

No it doesn't, I've been a mod too remember, that's exactly what it gives.



Yes and you need to remember you are not a mod anymore.

Stumped again? When you look up an IP address, it directs you to a map, which gives you the same positioning as the map at the bottom does. Your plan failed Andy, be sure to let Gig know won't you.

The IP address is a unique reference back to your computer

Sassy.

Sassy.

Yep, you can see the location of it, which again, can be anywhere, which is why it wasn't important that Ben did the ip address, it's your ISP that can trace you.

Think that's right isn't it KD?
Ben and maybe the mods are the only ones with access to IP addresses on
The "who`s online" applet only shows a graphical estimate of the location  and it`s really not accurate and Ip addresses are only visible to admins or mods

Now, as you were a mod on a few occasions on another site, you would also have seen Them and thus expected them to be there for others
Hence, your comment regarding the applet which in reply "you" not "i" was based on the belief everybody could see them  
but as i explained that  depends who you are at the time

It certainly is on mine. But then I don't use a proxy server or try to hide my IP. I have no need to I trust Ben and the Mods on here. I am concerned now however because Sassy can see the IP addresses apparently and if she can then others can too. Unless Sassy has Mod status of course.
