I am not a frequent poster so I'm not sure which thread this belongs in, but over the weekend I joined a couple of "techie" forums. I've been hacked on more than one occasion and I was interested in finding out how to protect myself. Upon making an introduction, a poster immediately accused me of having had 4 different accounts on the site and being a poster who blasts members on other internet forums. I was subsequently banned. And quite unfairly, I might add. I had never been to said forum prior to that. I'm not sure if my IP address is being framed or what, but any assistance that can be offered will be greatly appreciated.
