Hello,
I guess I owe a couple apologies to everyone I invlolved in my little exscapade two days ago. My foolishness overreaches me in obvious ways some times- So FBM, Rosy, and anybody else that I may have offended, not to mention Drakefire, my sincere apologies for the LF incident. And now good night.

LF incident? Why wasn't I informed of this incident?

Because you weren't around when it happened? Anyway, if you want to find out about it, browse these posts. Basically, he made a new account to spam and troll with.

How do they tell who someone is if they get a new acount and spam with it. I think I heard that it's the "IP: Logged" thing but I'm not sure.

How does the IP: Logged thing work? What does it do?

Thanks to all of those who toss in their two bits on this. =>

Moderators of a board can click on that and find out a computer's IP address. If two members' IP addresses are the same, they're using the same computer (or possibly are on the same router or something). Also apparently one can find out the region that a member is from using this IP address, but that wasn't part of my moderator training.

There are sites such as this, which will tell you where a person is writing from if you enter their IP address. They are not always all that reliable, though.

There are also other ways to check for duplicate accounts, and UBB Admin tools help with that a lot too.

Macrsp, as far as I know, you have offended no-one. The confusion caused was quite amusing.

Um. You didn't offend me.

Aesthetically, perhaps.

I agree with FBM, it was rather amusing than offending.
+_+ But I'm not sure, whether I should be offended by the increasing closure of funny topics ...

edit: I liked the name Livid Fire

It was quite funny. You know, I've often thought of doing a similar thing, but from a different I.P. address, so I couldn't be tracked. But then, I'd have two different imagionary lives, and I'd have to simulate between two different people: Archmagi Micael, and Skitsophrenic Twit 007.

I mean...

- Archmagi Micael

P.S. The name Skitsophrenic Twit 007 is © 2004 Archmagi Micael

Exactly. Micael, you really don't have to worry about anyone seriously wanting to take a username containing a horrible spelling error... unless, of course, they do it to make fun of you :P

Confusion? Ummmm... How so?
The prank wasn't exactly a big thing, peoples, and as for the tone set by those who answered- Its kind of interesting that the only people that posted any real opinion were the "less reputable" members of the boards.

well besides

As for the ISP# I was simplictic enough to believe that the offense was minor enough to be overlooked, though I knew I would be immediatly identifiable by mods and Drakefyre

*dead pan*

So do I take that as I have no real opinions or that I'm disreputable.........?? Hmm...?? :mad:

*smiles* :)

No worries. It was an interesting diversion. And warm welcomes are a speciality. ;)

'Sides I don't think you had a welcome topic in the first place, did you? Well, I would say consider that it, but that one didn't go so well...

No change there then. :D

And I don't much care if this offends you :P

Welcome topic?

Why in the world want a real welcome topic?
To get the "leave your sanity at the door"?
Like 1 out of 10/ maybe 100 people actually are fullish enough to start one.

It doesn't offend me in any way, shape or form.

However, the last three or four welcome or welcome back topics have just turned into sheer amusing stupidity.

Which OF COURSE, were, in due course locked by our REALLY GREAT, ALWAYS RIGHT, mods.

Either which.

No, not yourself. However the majority of your male following, could, in itself, be considered just a touch disrepuble. :cool:

But only in a legal sense. :D

Also, when I skimmed that post to check whether there was anything beneath it what I saw was "touch" followed by "yourself" followed by "legal sense". Make of that what you will.
