Hello Experts,

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?

Please help.

KEN

no password is needed. you only have to submit a username (anything you like) and your contents. they are not very strict on this---you can post a message as "john" and post another one as "mike" in a minute.

thanks,

that is quite possible. Do you have any friends that use the same service? try using one of their machines.
They also could be using cookies to track and ban you

you can try window washer
or try in c:\windows\cookies
and look for something that looks like
username@website.txt
where username is your username and website is the website in question
note you may have to have show all files option checked in windows explorer

I really dont think they would do it by cookies because it is really not so hard to get red if it i would say the same that KEN and STEVENLEWIS said they probably use the IP address and then if they get any inquaries they would alow that IP again and track it again.
