Without having surveyed the major ISPs, I can at least say that a good
many do have identd running so that you may get their e-mail address.  But
there's a good many that do not.  I also know of big ISPs run identd.  So,
even if you won't get Tom's e-mail address when he's coming off of his
Linux box, you'll still get quite a few, and the only people you really
need to worry about are the people on the major ISPs, these are the only
sites where it's really better to deal with them on a one-on-one level
instead of just site banning them all.
