Na. Howabout making sure that *every* dial in user has a fixed IP
address. This way you can match *in real time* or later, without
logs who did what. OK this only fixes dial-up accounts, but that
is a majot part of the problem - and permenantly connected sites
already have fixed IP address space.

To anticipate the next flame - it is feasible, we do it. Demon that
is.
