i don't know if some of you guys check it out or not but as well as an avid poster here on the hitmen website i am also an avid poster on wissports.net's forum boards. and ever since i posted a thread stating a textbook reading i saw that backed me up on why i think marriage is a bad idea people are blasting me and now no matter what topic i post something on in the water cooler board section they try to blast me for everything and try to tell me to leave. i won't leave but can you believe that these people don't even know me and they think i'm a bad guy because i won't be getting married? i don't understand. i started two topic threads to talk about today. one was about what your favorite puppy breed is and the other was about what words do you live by. and the thread about puppies for some reason they believe needs moderator attention! you're kidding me right? now true i was banned once for an inappropriate comment about another poster but this time i get banned for an "auto ban" that i am still looking into. oh and i'm sure you could figure out who i am on there pretty quickly. but still i hate it how these people attack me no matter what i do or say now because i think marriage is a bad idea. i'm pissed!

If you don't want to get punched in the face, don't paint a bullseye on it...

I'm not really a message board person, but I think auto-bans have to do with your IP address. So anyone trying to post from your IP is automatically banned. 

I'll offer up my 2 cents. At least with this message board, I run the show. I'll let people do whatever. But what people need to realize is that anyone from anyone around the world can stumble onto this thing. If I feel that something that was said could offenend a large groupd of people, I'll take it down.

How could someone hack into that? How would wissports detect that? Would you happen to know if wissports could eradicate that and reactivate me early? They claim it's deactivated until Wednesday which is bs I think. Especially if you read some of the posts they put on there about me. And the worst part is is that they don't even know me. They judge and admin and moderators let it go. Does that sound right to you?

IP address is transmitted through every http request. In fact, every message board program I have used uses IP addresses to ban users. It is how web servers implement a basic level of security.  You don't even need to be logged in. When you request a webpage, the server can read:


  • your ip address

  • the webapge you just cam from

  • The name of your computer that you gave it when you first booted windows

  • Your name

  • the name of the login account on your operating system

  • what operating system, its version, its serial number

  • what web browser you are using, its version, etc.

This why cyber-crime is the new wave...Its pretty easy to hijack whatever you want if you know where to look.

Short and sweet, if you don't want anyone to know where you are don't use the internet.

So someone attempted to hack it but failed to because they recognized that it came from a different computer and that's why it didn't go through for them and they auto banned it? Is that what you're telling me? Oh and sorry Mr. Bork I have never heard of that breed of puppy. But I can see what it looks like on Google images.

@Hitwarrior2008:

 No on is hacking anything. Your computer always transmits this kinda of data. Always has, and probably always will. Message board systems or any thing that requires a log in, typically identify people with 2 bits of information and email address, and an ip address.


So in theory, you could register a new account from a different computer with a different email address, and the message board system obviously would have no inherent way to ID you as you.


I should note, that I do not condone this action, however. If they have you on an auto bad, it means you have irritated the wrong people. I would just walk away if I were you.

Are you sure that it's just someone irritated? Because the first ban I had was a manual ban by an actual admin user but this recent ban i got via e-mail did not state that admin name banned me again. I e-mailed admin last night to get a further explanation and I still have yet to hear back from them. I would walk away but I have no reason to. I did nothing wrong to anybody after my first ban. The first ban I had coming. The second one they did not have a legit reason to ban me because I did not attack anybody and they attacked me no matter what topic thread I posted into. But you're the web guy here so I'm guessing you would know better than i would.

Yeah but I bet if you look though you would see that i really did nothing to deserve that 2nd ban. And now i see someone started a thread asking if I'm gone for good. Can't wait to surprise him in a couple of days.

Update: I have been unbanned by admin as they found that I was not in any rules violations.
