Internet Privacy.

Post by Enox on 2009-08-01, 12:44 am

There needs to be a post about this somewhere around the Yoyo branching communities.

Who wants to have their location just given away to some random person they donít know? I donít, and I bet a ton of other non-psychologically impaired people do too. When you look up someoneís IP Address, no matter what the cause, you are invading on their privacy.

Some of us need to learn this lesson.

IP Addresses, although most of the time wrong, can be privacy infringing. If someone does happen to have an IP that leads to their home (although rare), then someone could easily exploit that. Also, donít you see how that could be a bit stalkerish, hunting down someoneís IP?

Itís also weird to keep IP logs of people that come and go to your website. It is not a safety precaution: the people who would try to do harm to your website would probably use a proxy. Plus, you can easily protect your website by backing it up every so often.

Just a random blurb, but thereís more where that came from.

if you have not been using a proxy, however, don't use one now. it won't do you any good because the websites you have been to already have your IP logged.

Posts edited and removed. Posting links to proxy sites is dangerous and could not only cause the user to be keylogged, but it also gives your IP adress to the proxy site, giving them access to information about your computer, which leads to hacking and such, which is also agains the rules.
