    Maybe you're on a wireless connection that isn't secured (encrypted).

    Most likely you have a dynamic IP..not static..with the ISP you currently use. You still could be using AOL, since your question is specific to World Press these are some of the discussions that might clear up questions for you as to who sees what and when as applied to an indivduals IP when they do post.

    Now all that said..If your ISP also uses a proxy server..which I am sure they do ;) It does not really matter if you do still have that static IP service for your website..and this is an example why.

    I do not think you are concerned about this from a privacy issue..since your
    ctantiques nickname really offers more Identification info than any IP info could ever provide.
