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.

Maybe you could use a ping command to get all of his IPs and send a tracking cookie to him.

Or is that what you just said?

This is a message for the Forum administrators.

Dear Forum Administrators.

You know who I am so I will skip the introductory. I have noticed that we have had a great deal number of sock puppets from WC. Depending on what he is doing when he creates these sock puppets. If he is indeed being malicious or we can get evidence or a case for bullying. I believe we may be able to tag his original IP along with all his emails and sock puppet IP Addresses and then send an official Cyber Bully complaint to the authorities to have an official "paper" complaint and cease and desist letter sent to his physical home.

This could also possibly follow cyber stalking, since we do not want him in our forums and is trying to stalk our members activity by bypassing our bans on him and keep him out.

If you agree that there is a chance that we may be able to ping him with this, having him have his parents or himself if he is some no job and no life loser receive physical papers sent to him from his local court house about this issue will make him stop. If he does not, we can have him arrested.

We should go to extreme measures to insure that no one is allowed to harass us like this. We will make an example of him if need be.

I have to say, given his behavior, banning him was definitely the right choice.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

This issue isn't worth any more bother beyond the ban, than it's already been given.
