<font color="red">I do not want my ip number posted on a public forum. It is nobody's business other than the administrator's in case they need to take legal and /or isp action or to ban a poster based on their ip.
Persons too who work in a jobs whcih require them to have top secret security clearances, are allowed to post here on their lunchbreak. Because of security considerations, those companies would not want their ip numbers posted publically.
As much as I love ccb, with all of the problems we have had with hackers, viruses and now virus writers are conjoining with spammers to create a bigger mess, publically posting ips just is like leaving your front door unlocked at all times.
