    it is just looking for proxies. sometimes your isp is a proxy itself without you knowing, like AOL.

    I don't see where I can hide or un-hide my IP address and I don't see anywhere in the browser where I have a proxy set up. I know in the past that sites could see my IP address since if you took a poll or liked or disliked a comment, they knew it was done once. The only thing I can think of is that Hughesnet did something on their end since nothing on my end has changed.

    it could be a proxy and cookie check, more then likely.

    proxy to make sure you aren't cheating

    cookie is set to make sure you can't vote over and over again.

    They may be checking for known spammers. The bulletin Boards I run automatically check ip addresses against spam lists.

    Well not sure what the issue is, but using PDAnet and staying away from my router and Hughesnet and it went through with no problem. Up to 24 comments. It might be good to put something about this site in the general discussion area.

    I did some roaming on their website and ran across this:

    ECF- “The Worlds Largest e-cigarette Forum

    Are they just answering Traver's post, or what? Sure does confirm that ECF is widely read!!

    Yes, I don't know whether to be happy or sad about that....
    Rather than speculate, I asked politely who funds them.

    Brightest Blessings!

    I'm sure that numbers do make a difference. Just as important is to respond to as many articles on the net as posable. To me it seems that over the last few months these articles have become a lot less biased than they used to be.
