    I would like to know if there is a plugin, etc. that will log the IP address of users and tie them to their posts, etc just like myspace uses.

    MySpace shows IP addresses to visitors? That's a privacy lawsuit waiting to happen.

    it doesnt SHOW IPs to visitors. They track everyones activities by their IP address so if you post something illegal they are not liable because they have Your IP address to give to the authorities. Thats what I want to do.

    Oh tracks for the site admin? Have to admit I'd just access the webserver traffic log for that. With all the caching that's occurring, relying on a wordpress plugin that may nor may not come into play is just asking for holes.

    just trying to find an easy all in one package to tie posters to their posts.

    given the content of the site you are about to launch, you'd better get something like that in place...
