If they come back later, it's more work for us, but it's better than banning someone who didn't do anything wrong. Some places, like Fort Hood area for example, have a LOT of shared IPs. We have pretty good spidey senses now.
    All these things I've never known or even thought about... Brain might explode.

    "Thank you so much. No matter what, nothing is possible without you behind the scenes bustin heads and takin names. Thank you again. Everything you have done for me means a lot and nothing has gone unnoticed. I love you so much and thank you for saying 'I do.'"

    So are all cell phones from one provider the same IP? Or is it area wise?

    I use both my computer and kindle to read here they are the same IP because it's off the same modem right?

    Cell phone IP's are based off of your provider. I have a Verizon phone and it says I'm in Kansas City, but my computer shows my actual location.

    Unless you're hooked up to your wifi right? Does every device in your home hooked up to wireless have the same IP address?
