Or worse... the canonical example being the walled-garden AOL users who got a
different proxy IP address for every connection *within a single page hit*.
As in, main page 220.127.116.11... first image 18.104.22.168... second image
22.214.171.124... form posted via 126.96.36.199.
I always pull that gem out whenever people mumble "session... IP
