ok for those of you unfamiliar, we track IP address on this website, and let me tell you, I monitor them VERY closely. So, if you are reading this and have been banned in the past please do not think you are being sneaky hiding behind a proxy server to hide your own ip address and still be able to view the site or even possibly rejoin incognito. It aint happening! my little snippets of code tell me everything and though you may think you are hiding - the reality is YOU AREN'T!

You might think this is harsh and not necessary to post this in an open forum but I wanted to make the lurkers aware that they are not fooling anyone. And maybe this will help prevent future problems.
