Links got me in TROUBLE!!!

So I was using one of the passwords from the list on here and when I clicked on "movies" at one of the sites it said: " You are unauthorized, legal action may be used" and then is said my IP address! I then exited quickly. What do you make of this, I don't want my ISP notified and I want to know if this is probably just to scare me or what? I am sure some of you have seen this before.. Please let me know what I should do. Thanks

I've never seen that before. But I doubt anything'll happen to you. Just stay off the passwords for a few days.

Kool, thanks bros. Just got me worried, my ISP is owned by my father in law LOL and after all, what kind of guys look at porn. LOL

If they do notify the ISP, maybe I can just buy a subscription to the site and that might just be kickass!

esteban, did you ever get the notification that "legal action may be taken" and then see your IP number show up?

That used to be common. Nobody believed it so sites quit that. Instead they just refer you to another location hoping you might click and/or buy.

How cruel, wonder why some sites are still pulling that bs. I dont think it's very nice. It was on a site link that was just posted by Candyman and the site was one of the teen sites but don't remember which one.

LOL! I wish I had a dime for everytime I saw that! BELIEVE ME, they will not do a damn thing. They do it to scare you. Which, by this thread, is exactly what they did... RELAX.

lt1tech, grab $10,000 and head for the Mexican border. If you get caught, you can just deny it later. Oh, yeah, dye your hair.

Just kidding, you'll be fine. And your father-in-law owns your ISP? Wow. That's different. Juno is only 9.95 a month... just kidding.

I've seen the part about being unauthorized, but not legal action and ip address. Probably means nothing.

Candyman is a god among insects. I think I'd be more worried about my using my father-in-law's ISP to surf for pr0n. Can't he just use IP addresses to see where lt1tech spends his free time?

I have a tally file for the number of times I've seen that message. The first was in Dec. 1996, and I've averaged about three a month since then. My ISP doesn't give a shit what I do unless it's child porn or d/ling at 5000k/s

Forget about it... I'm sure they don't have the time or resources to follow up on every shmoe who tries to hack into their website...The website is probably run by some 65 year old guy from his basement.

So, I am writing you guys from over the mexican border, and I must say it is much nicer down here....all the tequila I can drink and no age restrictions...and let me tell you spring break is fun. I am so glad I got caught for unauthorized password usage, or I might still be in the wild town of Des Moines, Iowa.

Please people don't get caught for this type infringement, it's starting to get crowded down here with all the pervs....:-)

LOL

Just kidding man....ain't nothing going to happen...:-)

Of course you are, at least in their eyes, stealing from the cracked site. So I don't think there is much call on there end for them to be nice.

Bitchin guys. I guess I put this in the wrong folder. Anyway, whoe does'nt look at porn now days, porn keep the net alive. How hard is it for an ISP to see what a user is surfing? I'm cable modem and don't worry too much about it but it is kind of eerie to know that ISPs can see where we are traveling... lol What are your thoughts. Anyway, the porn stays... lol

I suppose you could always just play dumb and say it was a link someone sent you, and you had been put under the impression that the link went somewhere else entirely.

I would say don't worry bout it, I don't think they can take legal action against you...if your really paranoid though, you probally wanna stealth your ip, it may be a bit late now but better late than never.

Also I recommend that you ditch you history, temp files, temp internet files... if possible use a program like eraser, and do a couple passes, cover your tracks as best you can, I would imagine nothing would happen but a little security would sure be nice.
