Threatening

Post by Pat on December 3rd 2010, 4:05 am

If you go on a forum, and they have your ip address and they threaten to harm your computer is it against the forumotion's policy/terms/rules ?

The Forumotion TOS is only about the forums(what are prohibited) and doesn't state that if someone blackmail's you, about your ip adress, it's your and your security and you should be careful when going on some sites, like the member said above, this can be reported to the police.

But wait, they are abusing the forum's privilege's by using the forum to get their ip address. So that means the website is used for hacking/tracing ip's related. I think this should be against the policy

I accept this as friendly advise from another member however...

I find this quite scary from a member of staff, obviously there are lines that can be taken such as the police (the police cannot be the first point of call for this though!) however i would have thought forumotion as the 'hosts' have a responsibility to police this too??

Am i wrong?

Just report the forum by clicking on the image in my signature saying Report forum and provided all info to support your case. Then Forumotion will take action as needed.
