He's claiming that it states he is when he's logged in. Seems odd.

He hasn't been to my knowledge, so it's either a mistake or a bug.  He should get in contact with Nym ASAP regarding this.

When I banned WBCKansas I wasn't aware that apparently many AOL users have the same IP address, so I unbanned the IP.

My apologies, NCYankee.

His IP since he shared it with WBCKansas, yes.

I don't understand whole IP/Proxy/etc. business.

Just tell me: are your IP check worth of anything, if a legit, established poster can share an IP with a sock?

This is confusing.

AOL uses floating IP addresses, atleast that is what I was told several months ago by Jedi.

     Which makes IP checking useless in reference to AOL users, since it just gives the location of an AOL server hub. It was an important point that came up during the Yates saga.

Using AOL should be a bannable offense.

Serious question: what does it cost in your area?

Its an intricate situation and would involve discussion of personal finances which I prefer not to get into. We have discussed the possibilities many times and each time, we have found it financially impossible.
