How do you make contact with a G2G contributor known only as anonymous with an IP address?

Hi Ron,

You can't. It may be possible to do a lookup and track the person down based on their IP address, but that's work for a detective and might not be welcome. If they're not signed in, they may want to be anonymous.

Users on satellite internet IP address change frequently.
Thanky you, Chris. I thought that was the situation. A shame, as we have many g2g contacts that only have an IP address, but would be worthy of a follow up.
Hi Ron,

I believe if they have posted in G2G before (check their activity) then you could contact them by commenting or answering their post (if they have checked to receive notifications).

Cheers!
