Any excessive abuse to the website will result in an IP Address banning and your ISP (Internet Service Provided) will be notified.

A secure method for sending information between a customer's computer and the website. It encrypts (or 'scrambles') the data so that any computer in between the website and the customer's computer can't understand it, thus any hacker cannot steal that personal information that is coming from the customer's computer unless if the customer has any additional spyware or malware (malicious software) on their computer. You can tell if it is operating through an SSL by looking at the address bar at the top, 'http://' means its unsecured (default), and 'https://' means that it is secured. It is only necessary to be operating on a secure connection when you are at the form where you input your information. Always remember to check for malware/viruses on your computer to prevent identity theft. The most common trusted brands for anti-spyware/anti-virus software are Norton, McAfee, and Microsoft.
Every computer on the internet has an IP address. An IP address is like your phone number, you use it to contact other computers as well as for computers to contact you. An IP address is a small series of numbers that tell what directions it has to take to reach your computer. For example, when you dial a phone number out of your area you first dial "1" meaning that your call is in the United States, next you dial "507" meaning that the phone number you are calling is in the southern Minnesota area. The same is with your IP address. People can use this number for finding and alerting a spammer's Internet Service Provider.
A company, group, or person that isn't directly associated or affiliated with a company of any type of production.
The company a consumers pays for internet service. Some examples would include Charter, Vonage, LocalLink, any many more. Most ISPs have a spam/abuse policy where they will stop providing service to you for a period of time or forever which is resulted from posting abusive content on a website or for attempted to hack or attack a website/database.
