I am embarrassed to note that I've posted 1700 messages (Walter's done 4255),
most of which were from Australia (100 or so from the UK last month), but that'd
be from only about 3 addresses.

Can you do a trawl by poster, see who else is a total gasbag?

Yes. This list list of ip has been produce in the following way: 1. extract 28751 ip addresss from the X-Trace header in the post 2. keep only one occurence of each address (gives 3869) 3. get the country for each address 4. count the number of occurence of each country.

That's going to skew things though, because of ISPs like AOL. One post can be from one IP, and another from a completely other one. And, more, AOL is very popular in America - it's possible that the number for America is much higher than it should be. Not that there's anything you can do about that. -[Unknown]

Often it is, and even on DSL this happens. It is caused by ISPs that use DHCP (dynamically assigned IP addresses) which is virtually all of them. Usually you have to pay extra to get what is called a "static" IP - one that does not change. My IP, as an example, changes about every three days. If I were to change my router from keep alive to "when needed", it would probably change every few hours. -[Unknown]
