*client calls in*

Me: good morning, how can I help you?
Client: my ip is blocked, could you unblock it for me?
Me: certainly! What's your ip address? Then I'll have a look.
Client: I'm not giving you my ip?! That's too privacy sensitive.
Me: 😶
Me: 😶
Me: 😶
Me: sir, I'm very keen on my privacy myself but without that information I can't do much for you 😬
Client: ah so you're refusing to help me?
Me: not like that, it's just very hard to lift an ip block for me when I don't know the ip address.
Client: you just don't want to help, fine.

    Meanwhile client probably doesn't realize that his super private public IP gets stored in the webserver logs of every site he visits 😝 and if he really cares about his privacy so much, he could.. you know.. use a VPN?

    New theory: The client has no idea how to get his IP address, so he thought of an argument that would allow him to hide his lack of knowledge.

    @rutee07 So if I shred my credit card I won’t have an IP address anymore? I will be anonymous online?

    @korrat no you have to take photo of your credit card (both sides) and send the photos to cursemeslowly@tutanota.com

    It is an open source AI blockchain graphql API web service that auto delete all possible traces you have used it on internet.

    @Frederick sorry it is still in beta :3 might be a bug. Sorry pal. The minute you sent the mail, you have auto agreed to the T&C I have wrote on my sticky note.

    @cursee Well its an AI so its understandable.
    Now if over 9000 people send their credit cards it will be much better

    It's like:
    Do you deliver pizza?
    Yes, what address?
    I don't give that out to just anyone. Then they know where I live.

    I bet its the kind of person that clicks on "See all the singles around you" kind of button.

    And that is why i think tech support should have star system for rating customers as well...

    Could also be a social engineering tactic to see if you would unblock all know ips or unblock the last X ips

    You might have not noticed it, but good job sticking to your protocol 😉

    People's lack of knowledge pertaining to IP addresses disappoints me. They aren't in any way private.

    "I see over 17'000 IPs blocked, 213 of them have been blocked today. Which one is yours?"

    but yeah, the stupidity on that guy is enormous.

    @korrat probably.

    also, they most likely had no idea what an IP address is either.
