well, it's possible to use some third-party code and identify a connection's
acct. we've incorporated this into our newest code, and it has alot of use as
far as banning goes, as u can now ban an account individually. say,
ban new dert@concrete.resnet.upenn.edu
and i cant create an new players from my acct. also, we can finger dudes
online, mail their sysadmin with more than a complaint, etc. might develope
online registration an all, since it'll be so easy... kinda on the back burner
cause it works so well :)
