BT does not have the functionality to view IP addresses, for some reason. Even if they did, people use multiple IPs, what with home/office and mobile connections, that it is not a valid test.
The above makes no sense.
1) How do you know BT does not have ‘the functionality’ to view IP addresses? There is no ‘functionality’ involved whatsoever, and I speak as someone who has moderated and administered a forum in the past. (And one which had considerably more users and therefore more trolls) I have easily ascertained someone posting in with multiple handles, anyone with more than a rudimentary understanding of the internet knows you always leave a digital footprint. BT has the exact same method available to them, nevertheless, it does intrigue me how you would presume to know what BT can and cannot do with their forum which is linked to their website?
2) The point I made was not to seek people who have the same handle with various IP, that would be normal as we all post from various locations, it is however sublimely easy to detect people who use the same IP address for more than one name/handle/monkier. Off the top of my head, and to use an example: Do “AllOverTheGaff” and “Henkel.Trocken” ever post from the same IP address? They should each have a different IP address at all times, there should never ever be an overlap unless those two particular posters share the same computer. (Hope you don’t mind me using you in this analogy HT)
