Do you guys think that posting your grow log on this board makes you vulnerable to getting caught? Can't the FBI find your ISP number from this board and direct it to you at your home address. In these time, you can never be too careful.

Sure, and posting your grow gives them proof. Giving them them more incentive to come knocking down your door at 3 in the morning.

Most people here are hobby growers if they grow anything at all. Cops are looking for the big score, not a hobby grow. Or that's what I hope ;)

you need to understand the rules of evidence in this country.
what you see here
is hearsay, inadmissable in any court of law,
not evidence at all.
unless one is stupid/careless enough to reveal real names,
real addresses and the date/time of crimes he 'confesses' to
and documents that he is indeed really the person making that post.
then one MIGHT be able to get some prosecutor at the local level
interested enough to order surveillance in hopes of collecting the
real probable cause needed to get a search warrant.

your real world activities are of far greater danger than anything you post here as there is no way to know when/where pictures were taken or by whom, and no way to know if the poster is being truthful.

Plus, you know us druggie types. We all are lying through our teeth. NO-BODY is growing mushrooms...except for the couple of people who are in Amsterdam where it is legal. :D

However, just to play devil's advocate.
If you post something psilly here that shows a metric boat-load of shrooms in your state of the art multi-room grow facility...they might start to sniff around. You can only eat so many mushies.

besides,
the longevity of many in our community is pretty convincing evidence,
i'm still here after nearly 7 years of posting,
and there are many others with careers as long or longer.
i have no doubt that the feds know who i am, where i live, etc.
but they have to follow the law,
it's a game with rules, to them.
and they only win when they follow the rules to the letter.
that's our edge and our only hope.

I don't even think shrooms are on the DEA priority list. Most the busts I've heard about were just cops getting lucky and no investigations were involved. A large shroom grow near my area got busted a few years ago because someone broke into the house to rip them off and a neighbor call the cops to report a prowler. Shit like that is what gets a lot of growers busted. I always find it amusing when COPS are chaseing someone on the show and they chase them through some poor bastards back yard pot patch, bummer.

Ok, got it setup. When it asked what state and what mirror, I listened to it's advice and picked the one closest to me. The only thing is that already is my ISP. Does anyone know if I did this right?, or was I supposed to pick another state and ISP to throw people off or something? I really don't know the definition of "mirror" in this context either. Either way I should be able to get it squared away before the 15 day trial is up and I get the permanent version. Anyone's help who has more experience with this stuff is greatly appreciated.

Thanks Fellow Mycotopians.:bow:

In addition to masking your IP address, GhostSurfprovides all sorts of additional privacy tools,
including a copy of the company's antispyware app, SpyCatcher.

When Tenebril first introduced GhostSurf in 2001, the app masked your IP address by routing your requests through various public servers. The company soon switched, however, to its own, private servers, claiming that public servers were not only hard to trust but often terribly unstable. The new private server methodworks beautifully. If you like, you can even encrypt your Internet requests, hiding them from anyone who might listen on the wire. All your traffic does travel through Tenebril's server, but like Anonymizer, the company claims nothing is ever cached.

The app can mask not only your Web requests, but also IM messages. And with two free software add-ons, it can mask newsgroup and IRC traffic. Conveniently, the app even lets you compile a list of Web sites where you don't want your identity masked. In some cases, you'll want a site to know who you are so they can customize content, store certain information on your behalf, or provide special services.

GhostSurf also provides several other privacy tools. Its AdArmor tool can block pop-up windows, ActiveX controls, and other scripts. The TracksCleaner tool lets you erase local traces of Internet activity. And Personal Data Vault lets you hide all your system passwords and other sensitive system data behind heavy encryption. There's even the SpyCatcher module to keep spyware at bay. Not a bad deal!
