to get straight to the point- is there any way to get a person's ip from their sn over AIM without direct connecting, sending a file, etc. it's about those aim ads. ever got one of those? they're like "hey! come see my webcam at and i'm getting pissed off. perhaps if i can report spam to their isp, they'll get a warning or someting along those lines, if not just lose their account.... (is there such a law that helps me out here against spam like this?) i suppose i can just make a fake link to trick them into going to a html page that'll catch their ip's... but i don't have such html skillz yet... so... besides learning and deceiving, is there an easier way?
