LOL... like Fermat's theorem too simple to be explained? ;-)

Look nobody will even consider implementing it w/o a good concept.

  • Cookies?

  • IP adress?

  • JS-magic?

  • Session-IDs?

  • Browser footprint?

  • combination of all?

Keep in mind that some threads continue over weeks.

And which identifier do we use? Are digits really sufficient?

And now at the latest I get the impression that using stile analysis to distinguish (the rare occasions of multiple) AnoMonks in one thread is more effective then trying to figure out how and why AM1 and AM2 got their IDs.

Nice idea, but far from trivial to implement.
