ban someone from posting by thier IP addresses
Posted on 2002-05-24
I used to go to a message board often and post my viewpoints. but a few weeks ago i was banned from posting anything simply because my viewpoints conflicts with the webmasters.
My question is: technically how did they do it? I mean i access the internet by dialing up and every time i connect to the net i'll be assigned an IP address by my ISP, so how could that webmaster ban me? in the past a few weeks i tried several times to post, but always got unsuccessful messages. maybe he banned all posts coming from IP address ranging from x.y.z.01 to x.y.z.255?
