Is it possible to track certain messages to an IP address? There have been a few people posting horrible things behind a veil of anonyminity and I'd like to find out who they are. Be serious please! Thanks.

Nope, it's impossible to track ip's especially these days with so many IP cloaking software. Most people have ip's that change all the time. It's a free country, people can post whatever they want, as long as you surf the internet, you are public domain.

As best I can tell the people that create this site lied to a federal judge when they said they did not have the manpower to hand over the access logs. They can help narrow down who is doing what even if some are spoofed. This site is doing exactly what it was designed to as best I can tell, profit off libel. I am a network tech and 1 person, they have 20+ to my understanind(or did). I could give ALL the logs to them WITH an MD5 sum within 10 minutes probably single handed... They were scared what turning over the addresses was going to prove from a tech point of view.

Fake ip's are easy to come by so you are SOL, besides who defines what a malicious poster is ? That's a strong word, maybe you are the one who is malicious uh ?
