It is rather easy to get different IPs all the time. * Dial-up users get a different IP from there ISP each time they connect. * Lots of people (at least in Israel) have accounts with more then one ISP. Each ISP assigned different IP numbers from a different netblock. * Connect from different locations each time (internet cafe, library, school, friend's house etc). * Or the user can use a public proxy server to hid his true IP (and change the proxy server each time for a different IP) I own bool ( http://www.bool.co.il ) which provided free services to Israeli site builders. Some time ago we had a problem of a user Spamming and flooding most of our user's message boards (he went through the index and randomly picked a board to spam). I took his IP + date + time and wrote a complaint to his ISP abuse desk. Sure enough, they booted him of there servers, and he has stopped being a problem :-) HTH Shoshannah Forbes -- Hebrew services for site owners http://www.bool.co.il Moderator, site builder forum http://forums.nana.co.il/forum.asp?id=17 Personal site: http://www.forbes.co.il ----- Original Message ----- From: "Gene Arcamonte" <garcamo1 at tampabay.rr.com> To: <thelist at lists.evolt.org> Sent: Monday, October 30, 2000 9:16 AM Subject: [thelist] Big Time Help/Info needed > This guy is really F'ing this up.
