    Any of this information may be seen by *any* URL one visits.

    Thank you for that site, Bit Twister. :)

    Very interesting information.

    I was especially pleased to be referred to OpenDNS, viZ:-

    the Internet safer, faster, smarter and more reliable for millions of
    people around the world. Headquartered in San Francisco, the company

    I dont know a lot about security - but why do you think any of this
    information matters? So some website records your ip and type of os /
    browser etc - so what?
    what are they going to do and what can they do with that information to
    harm me?
    I just dont get it.
    If i go and ring someone's door bell - of course they are going to open
    the door and see me. what is the harm guys?

  5. It happens that Cautious Joe formulated :
    Why are you then hiding your IP when posting to this group? You people
    advocating the right of others to know all about your computer habits
    are very funny.

    You are hiding your IP and your are posting under a nickname. Why do
    you hide your real name when posting? What do you have to hide?

    I hide my IP because I have something to hide, but since you do not,
    why do that.

    And regarding

    They have now an easier to remember URL:

    What are you talking about Frank?
    I am not 'hiding' my IP when posting to this group. Presumably if my IP
    is not visible it may have something to do with my newsserver - I do not
    know why it is not visible to you.

    What is more, I am not 'advocating' anything, yet you write "You people
    advocating the right of others to know all about your computer habits
    are very funny" ?

    I simply asked a question - which has not had any meaningful answer so
    far - only your rant.

    lol You do know a lot about being a duplicious assclown though.
    You would never understand, you don't know anything about security,
    Got that part right.
    Depends on what you like. Today, you look like an AssClown.

    Wrong, wrong, wrong, AssClown. You asked several questions, got expert
    responses, then assclowned copy and pasted a load of bullshit, denying
    the expert answers and, in the process attempted to answer your own
    questions yourself.

    This is what is called "assclowning", AssClown.

    It doesn't have to be my way. Let's ask the AssClown.

    AssClown, do you prefer tosser, assclown or AssClown, AssClown?
