I am testing a temporary measure that tags any messages posts by non-members (no cookie) to prevent from using others' names.

I think Max has that one already taken care of, Margo. The registration does not allow you to register under a name that's already being used. If you change your name on your registration, it changes your name on all the messages you've posted as a registered member. Max is a pretty smart cookie.
I'll be more impressed if he can get my esthetic nonbreaking space in....

Margo, if you post as a member but have changed your cookie to a new nickname, all your past posts will follow that change of name. You can't do a one off posting that way.

Can one register more than one name under the same return email address ?

It's a shame that after such a long stretch of self-regulation and mutual respect, someone had to try the trick of impostature.

Margo, you can log out, and post under another name, like Spaw does for Cletus, sometimes, but with this new wonderthing Max is testing, you couldn't use a nickname already used here, withtout being tagged as an imposter.

Max, there is also something else you could do, and I'm assuming you know a little about programming and CGI scripts already.

You know how on CGI input forms (ie: Feedback Forms sent via Recipient's email, etc.) that are on many business related websites, there is a statement you can add (which is invisible to the sender, but not to the recipient or the recipient's log) that gives you the sender's IP address as well as the browser they're using and other info.

Would it not be possible to create a small script that logs all IP addresses, and then when you have spammers on here, you can block their IP addresses...thus preventing them from posting? While it won't deter someone who is determined to post here (using an IP masking program or other hacking program) it might be worth a thought.....or is this too radical as far as censorship goes.....?

This is cool, I'll probably keep showing up as a non-member. You see, I clear out my Temporary Internet Files everyday...so out goes my cookie! Does anyone know if there is a way to make your cookie read only so it doesn't get chucked out with the trash?

We do track IP addresses, and a few other things as well. Its not so easy to block them though, cause many IP's are dynamically generated each time one connects.

The Login (reset cookie) and Logout feature lets you share a computer with another user.

I like guest, let me change that.

Joe and everyone, this is just a temp solution till I can do it right. Did you read my first post or just jump down here and started posting? TEMPORARY! Don't get used to this and don't bother making recommendations. I'd sure rather be spending my time doing my real job and maybe something like, say... discussing music? I spent 2 hours this morning dealing with this and the NMPA. This is not at all what I want to be doing with my time. Yada, yada, yada, I just deleted the last few lines of this post which really may have caused a fear of the future of the mudcat. See what your doing to me? What the hell is going on around here lately? Everyone just chill and talk about music for christ sakes.

Yep, it worked and maybe illustrates a point. It doesn't matter what you do, there is always some asshole (in this case me) who will find a way (and I know this is only a temporary solution given by Max). Isn't it sad though that things have reached such a pitch that friendly places like Mudcat have to look for methods to stop imposters etc.

Andy G. posted this link over on the BS: Who Do You Want To Be Today? thread. It explains, in my opinion, what has happened to us here. Apparently, there are organized groups of people who perpetrate the kind of things like what happened to Mudcat last night as a *hobby* . . . go figure. Please go and read this information and let's follow the advice for dealing with these 'trolls' when and if they show up again.
