Someone said something really nasty about a friend of mind on topix. With a little googling I have discovered a simple way to find their identity.
1. In order to find out where someone is posting from you need their public IP address. Obtaining this address is simple. Just highlight the name of the poster on topix, right click, and then press the ALT + F4 buttons.(Press the ALT button first, while still holding down on the ALT button press F4)
2. Once you have the IP address you need to browse to a ip lookup website.
3. Type in the ip address into a textbox at the ip lookup site and that will give you the exact street address of the nasty person you are looking for.

This is bs! There are so many things that go into finding an i.p. address and it usually requires special hardware to do so. If this was the case there would be no internet crime. Not to mention people can get online using any public network and even steal signal from unsecured wireless. Here's the real truth of this:
This IP lookup tool is designed to provide additional information about the entered IP address.

These details include the hostname, Geographic location information (includes country, region/state, city, latitude, longitude and telephone area code.), and a location specific map.

The geographic details are pulled from a commercially available geolocation database. Geolocation technology can never be 100% accurate in providing the location of an IP address. When the IP address is a proxy server and it does not expose the user's IP address it is virtually impossible to locate the user. The country accuracy is estimated at about 99%. For IP addresses in the United States, it is 90% accurate on the state level, and 81% accurate within a 25 mile radius. Our world-wide users indicate 60% accurate within 25 miles.

By default this tool will lookup the IP address that you are using.

This information should not be used for emergency purposes, trying to find someone's exact physical address, or other purposes that would require 100% accuracy.

Now there is the rest of the story.

I used to use that trick all the time back in high school. It turned out the person who was talking trash one time was my best friend.

Mr_Mxlplyx... pushing ALT and F4 only closes out the browser. That's just basic computer knowledge. But nice try with trying to get everyone to close out their windows looking for an IP address that you can't possibly find without precise software to do so.
