Identicon could give a visual hint, but would waste more PM bandwidth. Maybe a textual representation of an Identicon (displayed by title when hovering over user name) would be an option?
This would also allow to distinguish different AM participating in a discussion (in a single thread, not forever - and as long as no cookies are involved, only while the AM's IP does not change when adding new replies).

Anyway, someone able to conceive such an XP whore-crime would also be able to use post via different IPs...

Update: Just for fun ... Monk-Titles derived from IP.

My current IP would tag the Anonymous Monk title with
Sister Nonia of admiarable Revision Control ;-)
