Information about IP address of poster

Admins, please add information about IP address of posters. So we can at least see if for example Jehad is really from Pakistan.

I know that it can be faked, but not everyone will bother to do so. Also it can be only part of IP address if you care about peoples privacy.

I don't think this is a bad idea.

Highly doubt moderators will make such information visible.

There's no need for that. I can hear a troll's fart from a mile, my troll detector is razor sharp. Jehad is not from Pakistan.

In other forum provided info looks like that:
(---.158.216.178.pat.umts.dynamic.t-mobile.pl)
(---.neoplus.adsl.tpnet.pl)
when server can get domain name for given IP or like that when it cannot:
(81.15.239.---)

So nobody can see IP, just network provider and the country of origin.

Nope, giving an ip: can track down a posters personal identity which could cause personal harm like we have seen happen by immature members on this forum.

What would be nice though is if the P.F. would make it mandatory to provide the "Country" that the poster is posting from.
In that way we would know who was making condescending remarks against another's country so we could defend ourselves against such insecure sneaks pretending that they are native Pole's posting from Poland.

provide the "Country" that the poster is posting from

If someone uses a vpn, they could pretend to be anywhere.

And some posters may well be in tiny countries with a population smaller than Warsaw - displaying this could compromise privacy, especially if it's like the place I'm posting from now. The number of foreigners here is in double figures only (and the number of English speakers is tiny) so this can narrow someone down, not so great for certain reasons.

Given that your real name is commonly known on this forum, nobody needs this extra information to track you down in your case.

That wouldn't be bad idea. Mod can verify if the location is real by the IP address.

You think you do, though in fact you don't. And you certainly don't have a clue which country I'm in right now and don't have any way of finding this out.

Now, I can tell you that it isn't Andorra, San Marino, Alderney, etc, however in a country as small as that, especially one with a 'difficult' government, listing the country could certainly compromise someone posting here.

That wouldn't be bad idea. Mod can verify if the location is real by the IP address.

It would be a silly idea. People would just use a vpn or tor. No benefit in any case to sho that someone's in, for example, Germany. They could be sat in an airport hotel changing flights. All that would tell anyone is that the poster happens to be travelling somewhere at the time.

Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein

I've always fancied visiting. An interesting example. There are probably a handful of Poles at most there, and someone posting from there, and a. saying that they're from Poland and b. posting in good English would really compromise their online anonymity.
Wulkan - | 3,185

So not surprised you decided to pretend that you forgot to answer to that one, because I know what is your name and you very well know it.

A strangely pointless post there. And a bit of an own-goal, since some of us remember when WB posted your full name and place of work late one night last year. In my case, you seem to think you know, however in fact you don't.

This is irrelevant though. Some posters may live in Belarus or a country with a similar repressive state and it would be a bad idea to give any details.

In any case, a poster somewhere like that, as well use a vpn anyway. I sometimes use one if I've got iplayer on and am posting from the same computer.

I'm giving you my permission to write my full name and place of work right here, good luck.
jon357 70 | 12,786

That's a. against the forum rules, and b. you're trying to take the thread off-topic again.

Better luck next time.

listing the country could certainly compromise someone posting here.

If your not at home in your own country. You're either on vacation or on a business trip right?

What would possess you to come on PF and start posting, don't you have anything else better to do?

It must be a very boring country or you have some kind of mental addiction to this place! LOL

You think you do, though in fact you don't.

Every time someone was writing jon's real name on the PF it was immediately erased by the mods, whereas if the name was different from the alleged real one, the mods would always leave it there. That is undoubtfully the best proof for what jon's real name is.
jon357 70 | 12,786

You assume of course that the mods would know such information, something that perhaps even fairly close friends in real life wouldn't - a pseudonim can be useful in business and social life. There's actually quite a tradition of this in Warsaw.

it was immediately erased by the mods

That's exactly what used to happen when WB or whoever used to post about a certain person, usually late at night.

It must be a very boring country

Bingo. Africa often looks more picturesque in photos than in reality. Too hot to go outside right now too. No 'business trip' or holiday either.

Interesting that this thread has gone (via the usual suspects) to speculating about posters' identities, rather than discussing whether to display IP addresses. It seems some people have little else to say.

Of course they would. Mods are not as entirely stupid as you would like them to be. Some time ago I posted the cover of Harry's book (which had his real name on it) under the pretext that would not in the slightest suggest any connection of that book to Harry and the mods immediately erased that post without even bothering to move it into the Off-topic bin.

Don't be silly, Jon. The mods of this forum know the hell lot about you, Harry and other members and it is pontless to urge them to share that information with members as suggested in this thread about publishing the IP addresses of posters.

I would think that a person would be very proud of the country they were born in and post it in their profile.
The thing is the ex-pats posting from Poland pretend to be native Pole's attacking other Pole's and Americans when in essence they are really just British failures or in cms's case who supposedly is an American pretending to be a native Pole belittling America.

cms claims he speaks Polish fluently yet that is most doubtful and never has been confirmed.

As far as you jon, we all know your real name and even still have the screen shot of your bald picture.
Deny/lie about it as you may as that is your privilege.
You did once claim (while belittling me) that you attended a much more prestigious university then I did which cost much more to attend without even knowing were I attended.

Post like that are most annoying.
One of these days when I am confined to bed rest again I will research just what university that you did actually attend and my bet is that it does not rank any higher or cost as much as mine did.

Most likely just the opposite.
Back on topic however and that is that it should be a requirement to have the country that you are a citizen be on your profile and have it varied by your ip:# by the mods. to cut out the pretending/lying to belittle and intimidate other members by insinuating that you are a Pole (giving Poland a bad name) when you are not.

I agree with JohnnyReb, it`s a good idea!

Ive noticed it`s mostly the expats that have a big chip on their shoulders and it`s giving real Polish ppl and bad name!

And if some members are in an unsecured country on vacation or whatever, then just don't post, nothing is that urgent on here.

Unless you have some obsessive compulsive disorder, some posters clearly may have! LOL

how on earth would it matter if Jehad or whoever is in Pakistan, Poland or Peru...

It's not where he is but where he says he is.
jon357 70 | 12,786    
3 Jul 2017  #23

I'm not overly worried if a poster isn't where they say they are. They could be from one place and now live in another, they could have a job that involves travel. You may remember that Scandinavian guy who said he was (probably correctly) an airline pilot and posted from all sorts of places, and of course there are some people who live in more than one country for work or personal reasons.

That makes no sense. Have you considered that Polish citizens might live in the UK and use a British ISP to access the web? Have you thought about people who have multiple citizenships? The IP address says nothing about your nationality. Heck, in most cases it doesn't even give away your exact location because people use VPN's or IP anonymizers, and large ISP's assign IP ranges and not static IP's (for which you would have to pay big time).

You are right.
When someone starts trashing my country I will just come right out and ask them what country they are from so I can mock the Sh!t Pit that they are from.

I'll let you know how that works out.
Let's start with cms.

If you think "fire" involves cowardly sending e-mails to someone's employer with some false allegations, well, I pity you. Still, nice to know that you intend to troll on here.

You don't find it quite so amusing now that everyone knows who you are do you detective delph.

Openly admitting to spreading personal details about posters are we?

Still, I think our work here is nearly done. PF is a complete cess pit, and it's unlikely to ever recover from it.

Let's start with cms.

No secret as to where he's from or where he lives. Now you mention it, I must take him up on his offer of a few pints as payment for that bet he lost a while back.

Amazing that PF actually condones posters openly admitting that they intend to ridicule other posters and their countries.

Only when certain posters do it and even then only when they target certain other posters. Pity PF can't understand that allowing that limited amount just utterly poisons the atmosphere here.

I'd like to think you're wrong but the evidence very much suggests that you are not.

We know one thing for sure and that is that the Limey Lounge (Brit Bullies) Rule of stalking, intimidation, insults and baiting is a thing of the past.

When the table was turned on you delph you came right unhinged and wanted to change all the rules. lol
The same rules that you abused for ten years.
Have you noticed what a friendly place this is when you are suspended delph ?
Coincidence or a set pattern.

PF is a complete cess pit,

Only when you are here stirring it does it stink.
Maybe you should start spending more time on that other forum that you post on so much when you are not here annoying us.
I think you would be happier over there as I know the rest of us here would be if you were.
You saw the vote a couple of weeks ago by a dozen members in Random Chat of what most everyone thinks of you.
Perhaps spending more time with your child would be more constructive then sitting on your computer tormenting us 24/7.
Think about it and let it sink in.
NOW, can we get back on topic !
