No more IPs

I decided to stop showing IP addresses on the site, now that I have the comment moderation system in place. I only added it as a way of deterring people from posting silly things, but since I can now stop those before they make the public side it’s unnecessary.
The amount of silly posts and flames has gone down since I introduced the moderation system – some people still persist but I’ve only had 2 or 3 cases in the past month. At one point it was that many each day, and unfortunately most were coming from BT Openworld dial-up, which meant that the only way they could be adequately blocked would be by blocking access to everyone on that ISP. While I hate BT’s guts, I think that’s going too far.
You know, even though I’m not taking part in the Blogothon, I’ve still made four posts this evening :).
