Is it possible to hijack or use someone's IP address ?

Depends I guess

As far as I'm aware the IP (Internet Provider) Address comes from your end as the thing that identifies were you are posting from.

If you were posting normally from home then the ip address would be limited to your home (or if you are using wi-fi), anyone locally who can hack into it.

If you are at somewhere like work or a place that gives you free wi-fi, then anyone there posting on your account would share the same ip address.

If you are using a proxy ip address (or other dodgy means) then I guess whoever provides them can also hack into them also.

That's my simple understanding of things anyway.

It's not for me to do anything sluffy just to make that clear, someone i am related to by marriage reckons someone has hacked his IP and i'm finding it dubious.

Cheers Bonce, don't know if it helps though either he or someone else is using his IP he say's it isn't him but it wont be his wife or daughter so i can't see how it's not him unless it's being done from outside by someone but why i can't work out as it's not for gain.

Do you mind a 6 fingered puddle drinking Hills Have Eyes extra, who still throws his clogs at the Moon, posting on here?
