A concern about registration
« on: April 23, 2019, 06:05:14 pm »
There was a q & a board on here. It had a link to the online manual for this website. There's  a section about forum administrators and moderators able to discover a user's IP Address and identity. What is that about? I can't find a place to guest post.

You don't even need to make up a fake name.

Why not post with real names? That's what they do on Facebook. Seems strange to register only to post as anonymous screen names.

Most of these folks use their Topix names, it's how they are known.

It's hard enough already to find a telephone booth these days. Now this. Guess I'll have to take my phone and run to the alley.

You could make the earth spin backwards until there's phonebooths again.

I was just banned from using the forum. The pop-up announced that I was trolling for pi and that the ban is not set to expire. I honestly was not. On this thread I was the screen names A potential member, Potential Member B, Clark Kent, and Potential Member Too. I apologize for any misunderstanding that I inadvertantly may have caused. I have real concerns for intetnet safety issues. I was not trolling for personal information, if that's what pi means. Please lift the ban.

How are you posting if your banned? What are you using all those different names to
post here?

If you are this paranoid about internet safety you have no business here. Most social media uses email, and username. Stick with Facebook where you have family, and friends that know you. The dumb act isn't working.

Different names? They look almost the same except for the Superman one.

Maybe I misunderstood what I read in the online website manual. I never meant it to sound like I was not trusting of this forum's admin and mods.
