I don't know if this has occured to anyone else, but for some reason the last post I made in the Pro Wrestling forum brings up a German flag. Have I somehow posted in an alternate timeline where the Nazis WON?

It's not a big thing, but still threw me off a little.

EDIT: I posted it from an iPhone, just in case that has any bearing.

I think some IP space must have been reallocated recently and we had an old flag in the cache. Today it definitely belongs to the UK (O2, actually) but I can't speak for earlier days.

I stopped and restarted the process that maps IPs to countries and your post comes up with a UK flag now (it WAS Germany before).

The kuro5hin admins had access to the ratings as well, so in the same sense they were not "anonymous", but for all practical purposes, they were anonymous because the community at large had no idea what was going on.
