Yes. Anything you do on a computer can be traced back to the computer you used.

However, whoever wants this information must get a subpoena or court order to obtain the information.

your post leaves a digital fingerprint of the pc/laptop you are using. If someone says something bad about you that isn't true, go to your local authority and Topix sends them the info of all people in that thread. The thread is then deleted online but the info is kept by Topix and the local authority. Then you can sue the person and Topix is left out of the suit. No warrant is needed for a public forum such as Topix. There are hundreds of lawsuits all over the country currently. Topix does not want to be involved in lawsuits all over the country. Most don't read the fine print of the agreement, but Topix cooperates with local law enforcement so that they aren't liable for something someone posts.

And wouldn't you have to name someone personally for them to be able to sue you? Everyone is gonna say, oh she's guilty! Well yeah I am.... I said some thing about this lawsuit happy person, then she said she would sue me personally for even higher damages, and then the thread got pulled. I never named her name, as a matter fact I'm not 100% of her name.

I guess if you don't bad mouth anyone on topix you don't have anything to worry about. I wouldn't take the chance. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. And yes they can be traced!

There is still a fingerprint from the source computer, regardless of which router is used. You can piggyback different sources, but I think your computer has to have its own ip address. If you are low enough to be hacking some neighbors' wireless connection to avoid paying for internet, then you might get away with being anonymous. Ip addresses have been around way longer than apps, so I don't understand the idea of throwing a tracking app.

okay, so who is the hero that takes it upon themselves to delete a particular post they don't agree with? Does anyone know?
