Get a $10 Netzero or Juno account, use an old phone modem, disconnect your LAN cord momentarily, and every time you dialup you'll almost always get a different IP number. If your IP local becomes targeted, then dial a long distance server instead a few states over. There are still USB capable phone modems for purchase, usually around $25 if you don't have an old internal PCI card modem to install. Understood of course is using a new username on the site and don't keep making the same misspellings as before, use a spell checker.

In reply to: dialup

you can use a Magic Jack Plus hooked to your LAN and run a cord between that and your dialup modem and still do it all through your internet connection. I've tried it and it works, and no long distance charges either. I'v e not tried using the old Magic Jack which would require it be plugged to computer USB port and then a phone cord run between it and the dialup modem (from internal card port, or USB connected phone modem). All it takes is a bit of determination, lol.

thanks for your response. is it possible to use proxies to post on a forum without being banned by the admin. the first thing the admin will do after a post by a member is check the ip address of the post. if they can find the ip or its domain through a search engine then they will ban the user. they will also ban the user if there are any open ports in the ip address. in order to avoid being banned for posting with proxies, are there any proxies which are unlisted (hidden from search engines) and contain no open ports.

for example suppose the user posts with the admin will check on a search engine. if he can find it he will ban it. he will also ban if he finds any open ports which is an indicator of a proxy ip. so the question becomes how to post on a forum with a proxy ip which is hidden from search engines and contains no open ports.

Many forums ban/block proxies.

So that doesn't work. If you know why you were banned and will not do that again, groveling is the easy way back.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
