Re: “My account was hacked as well somebody's making post using my name and it wasn't me I think we thought it was Z fart”
I just reviewed what happened on POPE IV between April 15 and April 21, 2018. It's interesting. In that period, the following vanished:

47146 - 47169
47135 - 47136
47131
47092 - 47099
47079
47076 - 47077
47032 - 47066
47007 - 47020
46997 - 47004
46992 - 46995
46985 - 46989
46982
46979
46957
46955
46944
46933
46930

Aside from the missing posts, it's also interesting that this all started on April 15, 2018 - the day I "vanished," the day I moved to New Hampshire and figured to be without regular access for some time.

I don't think it was a coincidence. Someone was trying to cast suspicion on me.

But then I came back fairly soon, saw what had happened and immediately told Bob that *if* he tracks the ip addresses of his users, he can run them through one of the ip reveal tools and find all the cities "Nemo" had been connecting from. If he saw Nemo logging on from NYC, Mahopac, Irvine, Toadsuck, etc, he'd have a pretty good idea of who to accuse.

I also told Bob that to solve the problem, all he needed to do was to change Nemo's password and immediately reboot the server - ending all sessions and forcing users to log back on with current passwords. He could then send Nemo the password and all would be well.

Safe to say, if the a$$hole was ME, I wouldn't have been giving Bob these tips since it gave Bob all that he'd need to bust the culprit and stop the problem from happening even if the culprit was me.

Since no one was ever identified, I gather that atomicbobs.com doesn't log IP addresses. What a shame that is. But nobody at the time knew whether it tracked them.

For a taste of what someone with your public IP can tell about you, visit whatismyipaddress.com . Then click in the map on the right for more details. As you'll see, it won't show your home address but does reveal quite a bit... more than Bob should have needed to figure out who had hacked Nemo's account.

Or just look at the screenshot below for info on MY ip address.
