I got rejected too but I'm not too upset, I realized something earlier.

7- billion people on this planet.

we are 61,000 plus or minus I can't remember anymore.

from that list of users pasted you can guarantee at very minimum 10+ assholes are more than likely trying to claim each of our accounts. if any of them got into our email (gmail or others) they probably went directly to see the last IP that accessed it. I didn't want to write any of this until an acceptable amount of time passed as they are also posting and reading this here too. sup doodz. xD

For instance, that thread with people posting their number from the list was an exceptionally idiot idea. xD
I just hope the ones that did post in that thread were lying or practice very high level security.

I'll tell you another way someone could get your ip.
Post a picture in a thread here hosted on a server you control.
every user that visits that thread pulls that image to their IP, every offsite hosted avatar too.
Your ip is logged now.

What do they do now?
they take that list and run it through pipes and probe every single IP.

go into your profile here and disable avatars and sigs, and while your at it, message the admin to disallow posting images, we don't need to see that shit anyway.

We are in the jungle, poison darts, pythons, boody traps n shit.

When you take all that into account, you can't really be so mad at mt gox, sure you can still be angry, but there are factors being created now completely out of their control.

Additionally, many of us are on IRC. Congrats, you now have tons of IP addresses.

Honestly, last IP address is likely just ignored unless you still are using that IP address.

I was really surprised to see so many people posting screenshots from the channels because I just happened to see a script on github or pastebin that correlates hostnames with bitcoin transfers?
I can't remember where it came from, but I wouldn't post it anyway, just because how dangerous it is.

Anyway, my ISP upgraded the line last week and, as a consequence, I'm not sure I'm still the same IP range. Which means that I have no idea about the IP used previously to access MtGox.

Also got rejected. I just thought that the sure way for them to verify the claims would be to ask for a transfer of a specific sum from one of the addresses used for withdrawing to what ever other address (does not matter - it just needs to be visible in the block explorer).
