I've noticed that a few people on topix (usually trolls)have no ISP location beside their user name?

How do they do this ?

don't know bud...i've been on other forums where all thats required is a posting name.

don't think it's important to have any info visible if you don't want....your ISP can be traced if you start to make threats, or the webmaster decides your posts are too obnoxious and abusive.

i personally am not concerned with whether the ISP is visible or not....just makes it more intersting for all participating if some info is available.

we got trolls on here who have joined topix like us.....so you can still troll, anonymous or not.

It's a secret. I could tell you but then I'd have to kill you.

I think it all depends on how you are connected to the internet. I've noticed that some poster just say AOL. I think perhaps if you are on a land line it won't say anything. With me, I'm on cable, and even though they aren't my ISP they do show my location depending on how their router is switched at any given time.

As far as tracking goes, every PC on a network has a MAC address and it can be traced.

Depends on the line. At home I am connected directly to the Denver hub via fibre optic so I show no ISP location.

I use the same internet company at work, but there I am routed through a local hub on a regular line so a location will show up when I post from there. It's never the right town and it moves around, but a location does show up.

Mine just stop appearing on its own. I didn't do anything to try to hide it. I must of accidentally did something to make it go away.
