    My girlfriends little sister is still in high school. Well she is being harassed by someone on livejournal by someone with an anonymous post (high school drama). Well over the weekend their house was egged along with their new trailblazer. Its linked to the person that is posting these anonymous posts on livejournal. I was just wondering if anyone knew a way to find out who someone was on livejournal if they were posting anonymously. Thanks in advance

    I'm not sure if livejournal logs ip addresses that are viewable by the owner of the LJ that was posted in, but if they do - then theoretically you can:

    1. Get the IP address and the date of the posting
    2. Get law enforcement involved.
    3. If its serious enough and they decide to follow it, they can subpoena the ISP for the user who was on that address at that time and turnover the information to the police who will ask if you want to press vandalism charges.

    Now, i'm not saying that will happen - in fact, it probably won't just because its a minor vandalism case.
