Question by Huy T: Why is someone having your ip address so bad?
I’m just wondering. Why is it so bad for other people to have your ip address? I went on a site recently and apparently it did a whois lookup on my ip address and it “identified” my location to popup an ad based on my location or something like that, but is that it or what?
I do use firefox with adblock plus and yet somehow the ad managed to wriggle it’s way through… But that’s kind of irrelevant to my question 😀

They DON”T have your IP address, What happens when you go on any web server it saves your Internet service providers IP address, from that they can tell what country and what area your in, any adds for companies in your area will pop up.
