On meatball we encourage those who do not wish to read anonymously to post on RecentVisitors.
You could go one step further towards full disclosure on MeatballWiki, and post the IPs of those who read, as well. That would close the circle completely.
This is true. I could amend the HitCounts script accordingly, although I'm not going to do this without a discussion. -- SunirShah
I will not support any attempt to publish the addresses of Meatball readers. (I would rather shut the site down.) The only exception would be general statistics like the number of unique readers, or the number of readers in different countries. --CliffordAdams
I didn't really expect making reader's IPs public would fly, but I was prepared to be surprised to the contrary.
In a sense, it's interesting to see the limits placed on VulnerabilityToCommunity. To the degree that one is vulnerable to a DenialOfService attack, one is vulnerable to much more than the community of posters who have accepted community standards. And, again, those who contribute via small ISPs are more vulnerable than those who contribute through much larger providers for whom such attacks are more quotidian and more trivial--a DoS attack is a more credible threat to my tiny and quite vulnerable DSL bandwidth, but the same attack against an AOL point of presence would probably be more annoyance than threat.
