    May I suggest without being derogatory or insulting in any way that some members may find the IP address identifier aspect in Zeus' signature somewhat intimidating.

    I realise that it poses no threat whatsoever to me but other members who are not familiar with this may do.

    Just a thought from the Wolf.

    Thank you.

    Thank you for the suggestion Wolf. It is not meant to be intimidating. I initially put it there because I used to travel a lot and sometimes I would get a kick out of seeing what the external IP of the hotel was. I don't go actively looking for the IPs, but occasionally number patterns would pop out at me and I found it interesting.

    The thought that some may find it intimidating never even crossed my mind.

    Thank you Zeus for replacing it.

    Being a retired vB Co-Administrator on a particular forum, I used to use, before the vB Stop Forum Spam add on was introduced, this;

    It's perfect for eliciting all kinds of details especially when I was in an unsecured WiFi location.
