Maybe we need more power users

Hear, hear!

But I like the brig idea, too. Kind of a hacker honeypot for trolls...

I was also wondering if it would be possible to display a user's IP address, in a tooltip, for example. This would be ONLY for power users, gods, etc., to help disambiguate duplicate users while protecting privacy.

    WOOT! Yessss!! + +

    Capturing an IP (in simple cases, where there's no explicit attempt to conceal it) is an exercise frequently found in CGI tutorials so "possible" is assuredly true. Since The Honorable Breather of Fire is undoubtedly aware of that, perhaps the "possible" refers to the likelihood of acceptance here.

    If so, /me votes in the affirmative (early and often) for an idea that's overdue, given the known and suspected troll^H^H^H^H^H disgruntled Monks we've seen, of late.
