You are only validating my point, that the identity of the query is not hidden.
If it takes a court order, so what? It’s an avenue to getting the truth out. Use all the anonymizers you want, the IP can and will be tracked down. All web anonymizers do is add an extra piece to the back tracking puzzles. Been there, done this in my IT job.
Yes, it doesn’t prove who was behind the keyboard, but when the chips come down, the owner of that computer will have to pony up to the responsibility or tell “who dunnit” Remember the grandmothers that got sued for their childrens misguded downloading activities?
When you think about it, it’s no different for an airplane owner.
Some other pilot flies my plane and busts some restricted airspace. Tail number is mine, guess who the FAA will call first if the pilot cannot be found.
Sure won’t be the pilot since the tailnumber belongs to me. And if you think I will take the heat for somebody else’s infraction, you would have another thing coming.
**Again, I ask, what does a person have to hide if a person like me is curious who has queried my number? **
If all he is doing is querying, nothing to hide eh?
Unless they have a hidden agenda for illicit needs, there is no harm in me knowing who queried my tail number or how many queries were run on my tail number.
