    The IP address 205.202.120.216 definitely belongs to State of Nebraska / Office of the CIO.

    Did you ban the IP?
    Did you send them an email to let them know?

    Yes.
    No.

    That IP has been a source of spam for at least a year, with 142 entries at stopforumspam.com since Jan 2010. They probably don't care...

    Question? What program do you use to get address's off the I.P. numbers? Or is that part of the website setup?

    Why can't we get a government sponsered tick eradication program?

    Go to a website that will do a "Whois" lookup. For example, if you click on the hyperlink, the site will show a number in a box - your IP address. Click on "Whois Lookup" and it will tell you about your ISP. Or you can substitute another IP address - of a new member of GCM.org for example - to see where he logged in from.

    I get a notification when someone joins GCM.org, which includes email address, user name and IP address. I check them out before I validate them on GCM.org. If they're an obvious spammer, I delete the user and block the IP address from the website (which I now do a little more carefully since I recently blocked part of Roadrunner.com. LOL!)
