Include IP Addy in Comment Emails

Include IP Addy in Comment Emails

Short, concise description of the idea
When emailing comments to a user, if the IP addy would be visible to the person on the page, include it in the email.

Full description of the idea
This idea was inspired by the previous suggestions about comments.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Harassing comments that are deleted could much more easily be reported to the ISP of the person responsible. Combined with a time/date stamp they can narrow it to an account which can be punished.
  • It also might prevent abuse by scaring people off when they realize they may face consequences for their actions.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • It'd need to be coded.
  • There'd need to be security checks and such to make sure the right people got the IP addies and no one else did.
  • It might encourage users to consciously or accidentally share the IP addy information. Especially without thinking if they just forwarded the emails.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Find someone really clever and dedicated who is willing and able to do it.
  • Have that person do it.
  • Tags: abuse, comments, notifications, § rejected
    • Post a new comment
