it is illegal to booby trap your code to destroy information outside of illegally obtained information (the pirated software) it would be a lawsuit waiting to happen.

@schroeder, I think that falls under etc., doesn't it? I know that I didn't really hint into that direction. blocking IP's is a never ending battle if the Hacker is insistent on attacking your system, they may have access to other IPs or can spoof their IP.

the username doesn't create the GUID though, at least I don't think it does, this part of the SQLMembershipProvider built into SQL Server and ASP.NET so I don't think that they would have it be created based off just the username, I believe it is a random GUID and not Based off anything.

The Four Digit ID is linked to a specific Email and will only allow that Email and ID to create an account and be sent the Activation Email. if the user wishes to use another Email address they will have to talk to a real life person to get it changed. so should they guess the ID and the Email it belongs to they need to hack the email account or catch it in transit as another answer states. but the Time stamp being added to the Guid is a good idea

I am not sending any information except for a userID of a user that may not get activated. I don't think this is the same concept of that question.

Maybe he was trying to share his Charger thingamabob.
