I know that. That's why the IP addresses aren't considered by the program. It uses cookies, but if necessary, I can examine the logs myself, which do contain IPs. It tries to look through proxies by reading the X_HTTP_FORWARDED_FOR header (and soon also those other headers :-), to record the 'real' IP (or as much as that's possible), just in case someone would be trying to 'cheat'.
