I have recently bee banned from a forum for posting as more than one user ID, detected by the moderator monitoring IP addresses. This I was not doing. I do however, make use of a WIFI cloud available in my area.
One user was banned because both he and his son were members of the same forum and used the same computer.
Could anybody comment on the viability of using this approach to detect multi-users on a forum? Could you alos, perhaps comment on the competence and technical savy of a moderator who would go to the trouble of doing it?
The forum sofwtware is phpbb2, which does not monitor IPs, so there must have been some cost involved in arranging for this to happen.
