I also know they've tracked some folks here via their IP addresses on ATS, specially those that reguraly visited their site. Apparently some of us are on a list, too.
Also, Ayndryl has a stick up his/her bum. Every time you mail him/her the response soooooo formal. Probably a bot or something.
Their participation in many forums rare could it be to learn about others? contact a particular type of people manipulable?
Oh noes i hope they don't track the 4 random proxies i use a day.
So explain to me why this site has people like alexandre direne who links me to translate.google.com...://www.inf.ufpr.br/alexd/&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dalexandre%2Bdirene%26biw%3D1024%26bih%3D467
He is a smart cookie to say the least. To smart in my opinion to be manipulated. Maybe i'm wrong. This fellow in into some neat things.
Maybe FL has a tiered structure. Maybe your boy Direne is 1st tier. Levels of encryption in the software they use would reinforce such a structure. Like most state ops that use a cult as a front (Scientology, People's Temple, etc., etc.) there's always an inner circle that's in on the game.
That's why, that night, when the main computer reported an anomaly
in the pulse's time of arrival, and after all my checks forcing me
for the first time to recognize there was a real error in my pulsar,
I decided... to hide the fact... changing all recorded data to
reflect the pattern I am used to... the perfect pattern... clean of
any anomalies... It took me more than a month. In fact, I have just
finished occulting all tracks, deleting the log tapes, modifying
the signal processor readouts. I know this is bad, I know I am
just doing exactly the opposite to what they expect from me...
But love is an irrational feeling anyway, and I love my pulsar.
Everything is again as always: more RETs on my desk, more tapes
distributed all over the world, more measurements every night.
It is true. I am not the same man. Everybody says I need a rest,
a break from this job. My boss even suggested I should move to
other department, perhaps cosmic rays, or the supernovae guys...
Yes... I need a rest... an endless rest facing that remote region
in Eta Carinae... where I need no computers, timelessly resting
in a limitless space far away beyond Cygnus
The money he earned every month was carefully invested in his
five areas of interest; a 20% was devoted to buy more books about
History, Archeology, and Music that he devoured at night. Another
20% was devoted to increase his knowledge about computers,
advanced information systems, and methodologies. A 15% was
invested in what he labeled as "Defense". This caption included
investing money in the stock exchange as a way to save enough
money to face what he called "defense operations". The remaining
45% of his earnings was used to cope with the daily tasks that
life brings together: food, clothing, car, housing...
There is always a dream the spider has: she dreams of starting a new webnet, creating a master piece, so well-designed, so perfectly done, so in love she falls with her webnet... that she doesn't notice she is the prisioner in her own webnet, trapped in the middle of it...
That's the feeling I get about you, when you talk to me about your world of wonders. I always end with the feeling that you are trapped in that world, my friend, like the spider in her dream.
Time foams around mine soul... seeing you from behind the trees...whispering secrets from inside this my skin...into which I hide... from myself.
I use Python and Perl for string processing, and JESSE for programming rule-based engines. When there is a need to program hardware and chips, I use macro and J.
Johnny, yesterday Enlyddir posted at FL something called Altoona Event. Well, I tell you now. It has to do with this here:
See, those are the things that worry us (it is supposed to be the new facilities of Facebook, another private data gathering companies out there). Privacy is being destroyed. That's why we invented our languages, Johnny.

lol. Dude! Naaaa, would be funny though.
IP address might expose your location but not your direct address. It's fairly useless unless you're using it for adverts and stuff.
But if its true, that they've tracked particular members, I'm sure they can DOX someone the same way some of the members here have and find out a whole lot more information about you. Facebook page, LinkedIn Account, ect, which they can then cross check with your location. Even if you used an email which you've used across various accounts on websites that could also put you in danger of having your accouts hacked and more information extracted about you. They could extract your direct address that.
Also, by finding someones IP address you can check for open ports, vulnerable programs running on their machine that faces to the internet and that could compromise your data. Though, I doubt they'll get that far.
So yeah, an IP alone is fairly useless but combined with other methods of extracting data it can be handy.edit on 20-11-2013 by JosephPalasky because: (no reason given)edit on 20-11-2013 by JosephPalasky because: (no reason given)
