"IP Addresses don't lie"Oops, wrong.An annoyance to my daily line of work is the existence of something called Anonymous Proxy Servers. They can be used for any assortment of tasks that are limited only by one's imagination, but all have one characteristic feature: making your source IP address appear to be something different than what it really is.So, playing devil's advocate, it's entirely possible that a series of people from around the world could be visiting websites and appear to be from the same location.(And not everyone keeps cookies around for longer than the current browser session)What does this mean? You never really know who you're dealing with on the Internet at all. Base your judgements on the content presented (which is hit and miss for this site, but sometimes I'm bored at work), and not on your hopes to get laid by some Internet personality.From a quick reading of the Ferarro blog, it seemed useful.(And just to play devil's advocate again, how do we really know Sarah Townsend really -isn't- Ferarro?)
