I have quite a few members with proxy servers on my site but clearly they dont want their IP to be discovered. It could be because they dont trust the internet themselves and I respect their privacy as Im not interested in where people are located they are free to join wherever they want. Its their perogative.  ?

I think you don't get the point. There are members here using proxies, asking for members that do not use proxies to sign up on another site because they are banned. Banned or not, just use a new proxy and you can sign up yourself again, they clearly know how it works. The fact that they are asking others to sign up for them is fishy, because that way the IP of that member will be logged on that site, for whoever to see. We have many people here under a proxy and that's totally fine by me, until they are going to request such things, I do not trust that at all. People need to be aware on forums like this and protect their personal information the best way they can, therefore my warning.

Why not just tell people I'm an alien from Mars? Tell them I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight. They'll believe anything you say, because you're a reporter. But if I, Michael Jackson, were to say, "I'm an alien from Mars and I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight," people would say, "Oh, man, that Michael Jackson is nuts. He's cracked up. You can't believe a single word that comes out of his mouth."

thank you Souza for the information!!!

Really surprised on the information about that B.S. Tom Sneddon registered as a goody two shoes in the MJ website, just to collect information for his evil deeds. Anyways thanks for the warning! :)

"Michael, I am here for you always.  I give you my heart, my soul and I offer you my friendship."

Thank you for the warning.

However, this forum is using Google Analytics, which I was pretty surprised about.
I think, this earns a warning, too.


For those, who don't know:
Google Analytics is a web analysis tool that (like all other services like that) saves the IP adress of the website's visitor.
Once Google has registrated your IP, they can track down your every move on websites, that use Google Analytics.
Users must be informed at a prominent place on a website about the usage of this tool, but most webmasters don't do it.

The problem is, that Google provides many other services (Google Mail, Picasa, YouTube, Google Health(!!)), that are also used by many and that stores your information - and it is possible for them to connect the information. If you provide personal information on a website like that, Google will be able to connect your IP adress with your home adress, age, gender, your internet behaviour, interests or whatever else you published.

There's a simple way to block Google Analytics.
If you use Windows, open WINDOWS/system32/drivers/etc/hosts (XP) or %WINDIR%System32driversetchosts (Vista/7) with your text editor and add the lines

127.0.0.1 You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
127.0.0.1 google-analytics.com

and save it.
Google analytics won't be loaded anymore and no data will be sent to Google.
Some site's performances will also be better without GA being loaded.
