Why exposed the IP addresses?
Well, I’ve been a member of Hubpages for months now and the administrators have never exposed the IP addresses for those who commented under my articles. This is the first time this has happened, as of now I can see my IP address and everyone else who posted comments under my bubs.
However, when I checked BGMALL hubs which is a guy on hubpages who talk more politic than anyone else, I realized that I could not see the IP addresses of no one. Now I suspect this is a new thing and it is design to expose those who are hiding behind the firewalls. Obviously if you have nothing to hide you should really expose yourself. Let everyone know who you are that way you don’t risk of being accuse of anything.
Honestly, I could be communicating with a terrorist myself and not realized it. The exposure of the IP addresses adds a little more meaning to the conversation, it shows which geographical area participate in internet hubbing and what kinds of conversation interest them the most. I only hope that everyone else can know the IP addresses of those there are communicating with. If this is not the case, please comment under this post and let us know.
In addition, some will wonder if the exposure of the IP addresses risk our chances of having a hacker hack our computers. The IP addresses are very much like our home addresses, those who know their ways around the network knows the route to our homes. So now this raises questions and concern for hubbers on hubpages. Are we at risk for exposing our thoughts on line or the IP address doesn’t really expose the Huber?
