So yesterday I had a conversation with a friend. Apparently he had an argument with an other user in a forum, and while both exchanged bad words the other guy told him.
I have your IP and mail and you will be in trouble.
Since then he is a bit freaked out. I told him that he probably said that to scare him and he can't get his IP. But let's say that the guy got his IP somehow. The only way he can find something about my friend is only through police right? And this will require a court-order right? Or is it more simple.
Like if the guy that "threatened him" is a cop or has a friend in the police, is it easy for him to check some logs and find his name, address or other information without a court order?
