Nathan, I'm still trying to come up with *any* site that permits
unregistered users to post but also publishes their full IP address.  Can
you think of any at all?  Let's not limit it to the big guys, let's really
think this through and explore what is going on outside of our own
bailiwick.  Just because we've done things for a long time doesn't mean we
shouldn't improve ourselves.
