|He can't "steal" your IP using ping. Tell him to stop smoking that whacky weed, it's starting to melt his brain cells.|
Ping is a tool that lets you test (in most cases) whether or not you have a working connection at the destination IP of the ping.

I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
