Yes, it gets confusing for the game players that use more than one name and location. The most common mistake that's made is forgetting to change the location to match the screen name. They deny the game playing like ummm always does, tell a few lies and keep right on going. lol<quoted text>
speaks of the location changing and getting confusing. Could that also be its gets confusing keeping up with many identities? I had just read that post before you posted about one pretending to be many. Maybe Im reading too much into it.
Proxy software was designed to safely surf the web and keep predators from tracking women and children. I gives your computer the ability to go through your service provider's servers then being redirected to a second set of servers before reaching its' destination, like topix. The location topix lists is the last set of servers, wherever that might be. It can be a set of foreign servers, too. Where your computer is becomes hidden to predators.
What is not well known is that using a proxy doesn't make you anonymous to commit crimes, like libeling and stalking. It's a safety tool, not a criminal's tool. Your location is only masked, not hidden.
Topix helps the trolls, too. All it takes is a valid email address to register a profile and screen name. I think my internet provider allows up to 18 email addresses. It's not hard to create additional email addresses with Yahoo, Google, AOL and several others, too. It's almost limitless in the number of topix profiles that one person can create. And sadly, we have a serious player on our hands. lol It goes back years and years.
