I dont get it...

alright, im not attacking mods here, nor Jon, but i need help understanding.

some of Rad-Caps threads have been dumped, but reading them, people accused him of being Auto-part (not saying he isn't), but rad-cap wasn't the one to get outta control, so whats going on here?

i know who auto part was, that big troll, but if this cat was auto part, he didnt seem to show it in the threads that were dumped.

just curious, not trying to start drama.

Moderators and administrators have IP address information to aid them in figuring out who is who.

I know, from the outside, it might look like they're just jumping on someone, but they're using unique identifying information. In fact, there is already a thread in the mod forum discussing this user.

The easiest way to help a troll leave, especially one that likes to keep coming back under different names is to "out" him as soon as possible. Once he realizes he's not fooling anyone he'll most often go away, till he decides to come back and register under a different name again. Auto-Part/Rad-Caps et. al. has a dozen different names on this board. He has never offered one single sentence that adds to the value of this site so this site, and in my opinion the world, will be better off without him.

He must be some good to someone or something somewhere.................I can't imagine that a person could be a total waste of a life..............................

After all, he shows good taste in the forum that he wants to belong to so badly..................................


Poor us..........................................

The IP refers to the server that he is using............Rogers Cable internet service has millions of customers using thier servers in the Toronto area. Legitimate members could be using the same server as our boy............

Other things than IPs are used, such as email addresses etc.

so autopart keeps entering the same E-mail address? no offense, but you'd think he's smarter than that.

or is he??

but every one keeps talking about the IP address:

I am not that totally sure how it works either, but there are a number of factors involved.
Jon does most of that checking and the suspensions/banning.
