If you plan to leave anonymous comments around
Every now and then, I am sure some would get spams on the comment box. Some gets hate comments. How do we deal with that? Be online 24-7 to delete them as they come in? I choose to moderate comments, log details of visitors and not have a chat box for obvious reasons but at times, some people just don't really use their brains to think before they act. Instead, they use their butt to do the job. That is when they just leave an obvious trail leading back to themselves. Cool?
I came in this morning and found a friend complaining about someone leaving a hate comment of his blog. Now, imagine if you have one hate comment like this taken from the site with the IP address next to it.
email@example.com | 18.104.22.168
Why don’t u just fucking die already?

What would you do with the IP address? It will be like "Oops! Shit! I just screwed up so badly it's beyond help". Say for those IT savvy guys, they would go for an IP locator which would point to the street the guy/girl is from. As the example, it is shown that the IP address 22.214.171.124 comes from Air Itam, Penang using the ISP of TM Net. Next all the user have to do is to send an email to TM Net with the IP address, with the details of the site citing a police report done, the hate comment sender is screwed.
So people, if you really want to send hate comments, go to a cyber cafe far from your house(out of the state would be better). Make sure there are no CCTV in the cafe capturing your face else you are still screwed. Never sign in into any personal sites as they will be a good giveaway of your identity. Comment and just leave. You can always tempt fate by doing that from your home computer but be prepared to get caught. We had seen cases of defamation, threats and false allegations being sent through the internet but little did users know that they will always leave a track if they are not careful.
To those who intend to send me hate comments, I would advice you to do your keyboard a favor and spare it the torture of being pressed so hard that the keys flies out as the comment will never show up. All you would do is leave a trail leading back to you. If you intend to send hate comments to other sites, I bid you good luck. I would advice anyone not to do that to save your butt from getting polished in prison. Several are already facing trial sending anonymous comments. If you insist on being one of them, no one could stop you.
