Hey all. I see that you guys really know your stuff here, and don't put up with any junk here. I am the same way - my forums are very strict.

I have a question. I got the idea from you guys (and KaT, xD) about reporting people to their ISP. I know that you can find out their provider and trace their IP address. My question is, if they are vandalizing a board and are banned, but still evade the ban that is against most ISP's rules right?

I know my friend (he's been on GeeksToGo and is banned because he is corrupt) sent me 15 spam emails plus a trojan threat, and we called our ISP. They said call the police.

So it sounds like internet/forum stuff these days is taken pretty seriously.

Eh? I was just curious.

He does this and you call him your friend?

Forums are taken very seriously, I don't even know what technically is possible but I certainly do not underestimate it! I wouldn't be surprised (well, I guess I would be a little) if someone knocked on my door and said "are you so-and-so on such-and-such a forum? I traced you here" :whistling:

People think that forums are a place where they can say anything because they're "invisible", just because a forum is a place where people connect in a different way than meeting in person. I believe that if people "change" when they are online, then it's the real self showing...

Where are your forums? Do you run a similar forum to G2G?
