    I don't think it would make any difference cause u won't be dealing with your eyes closed, obviously u would look at his posts/joined date/ itraders before dealing with such members unless u don't care about ur money.

    I agree for doing business transactions.

    However, at first glance when just reading a thread, I have often thought it was a certain member making a comment - when later re-reading the thread realized it was just some poser. I have a lot more respect for the comments, suggestions, ideas of certain members and it is annoying to mislead into thinking someone made a comment when it was not the person whose opinion you respect.

    i request MODS to watch this users activities closely " rapid007 "
    he has used a fake id of my id with just an additional "0" :D
    here is his profile :
    http://forums.digitalpoint.com/member.php?u=112880

    look at him :
    Registered : November 5,2007
    and 26 posts already possibly prepareing for his scam :D


    Buyers beware.. always PM me and no one else if you want any help/work/rapidshare premium account from me :)
    if u say u contacted xyz on msn and this that, you can forget all customer assistance from me in case someone scams you using my name !! :(

    PM me and ask for any help or anything you need .

    regards

    maybe you're to dumb to understand what an ip# is and what a proxy is and to dumb to understand how they are used.
    1st of, not all MODS on DP know what a resolved ip is. and not all mods on DP know how to do ip checks, clicking an ip # or link, does not show a resolved ip# unless you know what you are looking at. just because it says host-bla bla bla bla dont mean shit.

    you have to know what to do after that. :rolleyes:
