I concur. I've been making use of the IP information (amongst other things)
for over a year now on a number of my sites. I talk with a good sample of
my visitors on the phone and in person, and receive phone calls immediately
when significantly less serious problems arise. I've never seen any
evidence that using the IP information has turned visitors away (need to
authenticate to use the power features).
I'd need to see some evidence of this having happened someplace (on my
sites or someone else's) before I changed things. Can anyone provide
statistics, example or other evidence that this is a PRACTICAL problem and
not just a theoretical one?
