For instance...

If I am posting on a PUBLIC FORUM & some nasty things are said back & forth... the administor of the board gets my ip address, bans it & others are trying to track down who the IP address belongs too.... is this possible?

From my understanding, you can see the city & state w/ an IP address, but the name doesn't appear.. is this right?

And w/ an IP address, can you find out WHO is behind that address?

Any help?

The degree to which you are hidden is largely dependent on the resources the person trying to track you down has access to

Consider this piece of advice: don't say nasty things

People should not act a certain way on the internet if they are not willing to act that way face to face.

I say we go to house later and throw eggs now that he so graciously left his ip address!
