Conflicting IP

I recently noticed that on Wikipedia, i had been blocked for apparently posting abusive phrases. I am the sole owner and user of my computer, which leads me to believe that a computer somewhere is using the same ip address i have. is this possible?

I have tested this with IP geolocation sites, and my address definitely shows my ISP and approximate loaction correctly.

I am also concerned that the otheruser may use this IP to access innapropriate content eg. racist, which if traced, the blame would return to me.

What can i do?

Thanks

i doubt the likelihood of what you suggest as most isp' use random IP addy's, it is most likely that your isp and not you has been blocked as they may have an abusive customer which has led to this,
