I recently read (in a website) the following sentence. (I replaced the usernames with placeholders.)
[username1], if this is still happening, there is a good chance your IP got blocked due to failed logins. Post the IP here and track down [username2] or [username3].
- What does "track down" mean, in that sentence?
- Is "track down" used with that meaning in specific contexts, or is it largely understood to mean that? For example, if I am in a room together somebody else, and I say "Track down Michael." does the other person understand what I mean?
