Is it possible to locate the geographical region from which an IP address originates?
For a FT member, I mean.

If the next mobile IP the clown uses happens to originate in a state far away from the last, would we know it?

Well, any site traffic according to my understanding is recorded in a server log.

So, it's the matter of taking the IP of the person interacting with the shoutbox plugin (who is harassing) and putting it through a tracer, which would either show up the ISP's servers (helpful) or the dude's location (more helpful).

Besides returning stalking w/ stalking, the only sure way to find out who he is is to find out as much as you can that way, plus any other information you may glean from other forums with regards to stalking and his/her location, and file a big fat complaint.

It is not possible to precisely geolocate a mobile connection as it roams alot due to dynamic ip assignment. Nevertheless, matty is easy to spot due to the fact that he is not able to hide his 'personality' for long.

Yes, a mobile may go through up to 80+ Ip assignments every 9 seconds. It can be done, but only if "authorities" are actively looking for someone ... or something... and only with a warrant ... so far. Dodgy

Thanx Shy
I wasn't considering stalking a stalker Tongue I was more concerned with identifying whether he's actually moving great distances IRL, and notifying as many law enforcement agencies as possible of that lil tidbit of info as soon as the fact were to be discovered, if it was an easy thing thing to find out.
Guley only gets dead serious when he's worried about his friend's & acquaintance's safety! I have been called a worry wort, before, though Blush

I mean, yeah, but the victim needs to complain as per stalking law (idk about cyberstalking).

And here I thought I missed out on all the forum's crises for this year. I don't really have much to offer in the way of a solution, but I am going to keep tabs on this.

Excuse my technological ignorance but is it possible to ban his device? The MAC address or whatever it is?

RE: Sock puppets, and the banned. Is there a better way?
The MAC address won't be transmitted beyond the user's local network, eg beyond the home router or beyond the mobile network. The identifier between networks is the IP address, but these are allocated dynamically and aren't necessarily tied to the particular device.

It might be possible to seed a cookie or local storage into a given browser that could be used for this kind of tracking:
- Cookies: Return a Set-Cookie header and it will be handed back to the server with each request... until the user clears their cookies - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_cookie
- Local storage: in javascript say localStorage.setItem("unique-id", someid) - http://codepen.io/awesom3/pen/Hlfma https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs...OM/Storage
Again this is something the user can clear.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
