X-Posting-IP mail header

X-Posting-IP mail header

Short, concise description of the idea
Explicit header in mail generated by LJ can help track poster who deletes his comment, while preserving privacy

Full description of the idea
I suppose it would be useful if there were a header, say, X-Posting-IP: A.B.C.D containing the IP address of the poster (surely, if user checked corresponding check box)

Otherwise, is possible suspicious person leaves an enbarassing comment and then deletes it, there is no way for the user to determine who this would be; it is feeled as extremely needed in case of massive such comments, especially with similar/identical content.

Thank you!
