rman:
i noticed my local IP is displayed, is that just for me? no one elae can see it, other than perhaps mods?

PC got hacked a few months ago and am over paranoid. It's secured now but just making sure... you never know

Unless your IP is 192.168.1.107 you've got nothing to worry about ;)

Seriously, the IP is displayed to you, not other users.
It IS logged into the message structure and is visible to Admin.
Every forum works that way.

That is one tool mods/admin use to detect banned users returning with a new ID.  Worst case, if the user continues to return, they can block the entire subnet.   That's last resort type thing because it ends up blocking all of the ISP's users on that same subnet.
