Now, why do you suppose...

Recommended Posts

... that some high muckety-muck in Iran (of all places) would be perusing our forum?

A visitor with the IP address : 217.174.16.29 was on here while I was. I was curious who it might be, so I ran it through my favorite IP sniffer thingie. (technical terms only, please)

Here's the WhoIs on that IP (even though I fully expect it to be a spoofed address, it's still rather funny):

i'd be more worried about israeli and chinese ip's than iranian if you're worrying about being hacked.

@ Chunk : I giggled, but that's a bit out of line in any case. But... I'm not editing it. I'm guilty of bias, and I admit it.

@ Wringer : No, this forum area is public.

@ Bard : Not so worried about being hacked. As in, if it happens, it's an "aw shit" deal, not something I'll see coming. That's what backups are for, right?

I haven't seen much in the way of Chinese or Israeli IP's lately, but I do recall seeing both in the past. Very few of those folks are forum members now (there's an Israeli sim squad that has a member or two registered here), as I deleted their accounts long ago.

I'm more concerned about keeping the spammers* at bay.

* By "spammers", I mean the folks who would use this forum as a means of increasing traffic to their own (porn, warez, hacked and infected) web sites through flood-posting, sig links, profile links, etc. And of course the morons who post garbage just for the hell of it... ooops, that could be me! /applications/core/interface/imageproxy/imageproxy.php?img=%7BSMILIES_PATH%7D/icon_redface.gif&key=b30c314ea10c72f3d32953a265be0c32a1435b472bb99313e5e3656e23efc144">
