Comment: Not always

(See in situ)

Not always

Thank you awl19; I actually did that the moment I received it, but it's not so simple.

Per the U.K. Daily Mail*, "Iran has one of the biggest Internet filters of any country in the world, preventing normal Iranians from accessing countless sites on the official grounds they are offensive or criminal...Virtual private network (VPN) software, which makes the computer appear as if it is based in another country, is commonly used by Iranians to overcome the government filter."

Rather than tracing to a neighborhood, the IP associated with Saeed's comment traces to a VPS (Virtual Private Server) hosting company in a U.S. city.
