So...

if I want to put Fuzz on ignore and I go by his IP address and next week he moves to a new hotel do I have to do it all over again?

What if he's posting from his phone at work and then from his tablet or laptop back in his room?

What happens when he's back in Monroe...

do I have to look at all his posts again ??? ??? ???

Ok, you are right.   Logic should be name or any IP addresses used by that user.

Update the Ignore feature use IP address and not user name.

I'm not 'techie' enough to know all the details on IP addresses although I understand the basic concept that every individual device connected to the internet has it's own address. 

Another 'what if' question (and I won't be surprised if you don't know the answer either)...

I know there may be a few members that are using the wifi service at one of the library branches for their access.  Way back in the very early days of MT they had the settings so only one 'user' could come from a given IP address so whoever was the first user to sign up from the library system completely blocked any new member from being able to sign in using the library.  Ultimately they had to back off on that restriction so that any member could be using the library system...   I guess in theory everyone could have been able to use it.

So, with the above background in mind...

If I block 'the fuzz' (see above photo Fuzz) and he's been logging on at the main library then will I end up blocking everyone that tries to log on from the library?

Will I be blocking everyone that is using the library wifi system wide?

Not sure if I explained that well enough for you to see where I'm going with it!?!?!?

I'm sorry that my republican bro Excelsior seems to be having these technical issues.  I would be more than happy to donate some of my time to provide technical assistance in helping him figure out how to not to read posts by people he wants to ignore.

Yes, it would capture those IP addresses and ignore any posters using a common IP.

Ok, so as long as a poster(s) I want to ignore is using only one device and staying somewhat stationary then it sounds like this may be an 'enhancement'. 

I think I'm going to leave it alone for a bit and let you give us a review in maybe 30-60-90 days.

But....

The only IP addresses that are visible to a particular poster are his own.  No others are accessable except to the moderators and the forum IT.

The way I understand it, one IP address per Modem, hook a WiFi router to it and 6 people use it they all use the same IP address.

Actually, on the cable side of the modem there is 1 IP address, but on the router side there are different network IP addresses for each device connected so that everything doesn't get mixed up.

BTW the internet has run out of IPv4 addresses and is in the process of switching to IPv6 which means eventually we will have to have new routers and servers that support it.

Back when we had dial up you ended up with a different IP address every time you logged on.  Now it remains constant until for whatever reason you have to reboot your modem-router and then you end up with a different address.

If you're really interested in digging into your network you can download a free app (at least on Android) that will give you all sorts of neat info on every device connected to your network.  You can easily assign names for devices and it will tell you when the last time they were active.  If someone were to get past your security it will let you 'evict' them.
