Neil,

Please see my post on the thread -

Question to end all questions for newbies!

I was just attacked by, probably, another member of this forum. I think the person should be banned from the forum, if they are a member.

Thanks.

Considering that with the current operating system, address spoofing is so easy, there is no guarantee the person *ostensibly* originating the message, if there was a message, actually did do so.

I get spam which originates from live addresses, not one of whom likely knows I exist... or that spam was sent "from" their computer. It likely was not.

If the "pgmr" of Dan's handle indicates he is a "computer programmer", he should know about this in far greater detail than we (or I at least) do.

Dan,
I'm kinda curious about how you came to that conclusion? You were arguing with someone and you happened to have a computer attempt an http connection around the same time from somewhere else. I must be missing something http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//confused.gif
