i dont know you at all, but...

you are in asia... normal people from the "west" are fat for the native standards... worst if you are girl...

it is the reverse of being in england, where all girls are thinner than the natives girls.

(oh i am gonna get flamed for this one...) :-)

We are hardly invading your 'privacy' as there are other ways and other people who can see your IP address too. :o

I am not sure this is entirely true, I sometimes use a proxy server but this website appears to be able to still find it (adds the caption 'proxy server detected'); :o

Yes there are other ways, but you don't reveal where the user has traveled to ( the list of places). It is personal. THEY CLEARLY mentioned all the places I have been to, you can read it!!

i dont believe in truth so it is not my intention to provide it

now, why this website "knows" you are using a proxy are myriad, from checking up your IP against a DB of singapore IP's to checking in your POST/REQUEST headers.

if i am not mistaken you are using phpforum script or some branch of phpBB, which after many years has gotten quite "intelligent" on protection.

hence i love the "a cow in a china store" metaphor...

not only provides endless fun out of a "simple forum user" but it is quite the image to put in a brain.

hiromice, thats not exact science... only MAC addresses are a real finger print 'cause among many other things... they are unique.

just be happy you post in a forum where mods actually care to check and in the long run it serves for your own safety.

well... it has something to do with farm animals but for me the most impressive was what my grandma used to say...

a pair of boobs have more strength than a pair of bulls

Yes, but do they post them?

I just wonder, why bother?

hibri2, not really sure what your long posts are on about as you don't seem to grasp the fundamental and basic question: is it really necessary?
