Hello Everyone,
I have searched quite a few forums for an answer
to this question,
and most all of the ones searched, not only did
I not find an answer, but they do not even touch
on the subject.

I am beginning to think it is a forbidden subject.
The subject is finding out a users true identity.
I suppose this is a breech of a persons "right to privacy".
And as I am not that savvy on all the ins and outs of the
privacy laws, it makes me curious, as to if there is, indeed
a way to find out someones true identity.

I do not want this to start sounding like it belongs in an
"Advice for the lovelorn" forum, because my problem
and question are very real.
I feel I must give you some background, in order for you
to better direct me, to any help you may be able to give me.
I will be as brief as possible, but lengthy enough to get
my point across.
Starting with the problem, I go to a certain website,
where you can pick a "username" and password to sign
in, much the same as this site. I have been seeing a certain
other person that also goes to the site, Because I told them
about it, and they joined it also. We have been exclusive
for about two years now. However we live in different states.

For the last two years we seem to have a running
argument going, because I am under the belief that
he is making up different user names in order to play
certain people on the site, and I would be unaware of it.
Please, I must at this point tell you, that he could have
a million different user names, and it would not bother
me in the least, I believe everyone has every right to do
what ever they want to do. It is when the person starts
saying they think you need professional mental help because
of your beliefs, that becomes the problem

It is not fun when someone starts messing with another
persons mental stability. I am seeing a psychiarist at
the time of this writing, mainly because of this problem.

The question I have to pose to you, is someone told
me there is a software , entitled "Pin Point a Poster",
and it can be used to find out the true identity of whoever
the true person is behind the false user name. From what
they told me, it is not cheap, costing upwards of over $200,
which what is the exact price. for peace of mind?
I have no idea where to even begin to look for where
to purchase the software, or even if there truly is one
that does this task.
I will appreciate any and all input regarding this question.
thank you so much

oh I must add, that I contacted the sites owner, and he
has informed me that he has no way of knowing who the
users are truly.

Why would a program give you peace of mind, if you do not mind if he has other names?

Please understand that question is for you only, I do not wish a reply.

I normally do not make a habit of responding to issues like these, I am making an exception here. I understand you are feeling real unhappiness and it is upsetting you alot. I am sorry to hear this, and hope peace can come to you soon.

It isn't what I, or anyone else thinks, you are talking to a Dr at this time about this problem, and I think he is the most qualified to deal with this issue.

Technically speaking:
You have spoken to the site admin, and I am sure he has no way of knowing if the people he signed up are who they say they are. One would need to submit drivers licenses and pictures, and no one will do so. For pin point a poster to even work, a person would have to give the same login name and have user-id's linked to that name. Alot of pain, to maintain that kind of thing on a forum where people come and go, and sign up, and never come back again *even if pin point a poster* worked, it would only be able to retrieve the user name they signed up under, and that would be illegal breaking into a network and retrieving information, which is punishable by law, and even easier to trace than .. headers on an email.

Frankly, I just think someone wants your 200.00 bucks.

My advise here is to keep talking to your Dr.
Save yourself 200.00

Robin,
Thank you for replying to my post.
it is appreciated.

I realize you said the question was strictly for me,
and did not need to be asnwered.
But, have you ever known something, and yet
had no proof, valid proof, so, there is always
that doubt lurking.
Beleive me , it is the worse feeling in the world.
Of never really being one hundred per cent
positive of something you know is true.? and further
more, never being able to prove it.
