Does it matter that when you trace my IP, you get a completely different town, thats like 10-15miles away from here?

If you are really worried about it just surf via proxy or use a web anonymizer service.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I saw one time where a guy was talking trash and they found out who he was and were posting personal information on him without using anything other then his User Name and email. He was using some school account and his user name was a derivative of his real name, so they look into school records and found his full name and just went from there. Was pretty scary. I have had people on here from the Milwaukee area ask where I live specifically and I wont tell them for that very reason.

Unfortunately that type of information has always been available. It's just that now due to the Internet it is available to lazy and stupid people also. :-D

Doesn't matter since a good hacker can find out the billing address once they trace the IP. From there, you're toast. :-°

No I would never do that. But if you're going to use my email address at least make yourself useful and send me some of that porn you're hoarding. B-)
