IP adddresses, ScottR

ScottR :
I have seen some boards where the IP address of the posters are listed.
Is that something you would consider doing here?

Why are you asking this, Dr. Ed?

Dorothy:
The IP adresses identify the poster, or at least the computer. There has been a bit of name play here and would like to know the true identity of posters. I realize that that is an imperfect method since posters can and do use different computers but it may be helpful.

for privacy and security reasons, ip addresses should not be displayed.

I agree that IP addresses should not be displayed. However, I also suspect that at least one person out there is posting under other peoples' names, just to cause trouble.

There is obviously some hanky-panky with a few handles. I think it just shows that a few people cant stand on their own merits so they change names
