That's not true.  Every web site on the Internet can (and mostly do) capture the IP of every user visiting the site.  This forum site captures it........take a look at your forum profile (click on your name on the upper part of the page........"Weclome Markking Hubbenfuff").  Look near the bottom of the "Non-Public Statistics".

Only Linden Lab can ban by IP Address, AFAIK.

Most ban tools in SL use the avatar ID infomration, as others pointed out. 

If you are having a problem with someone coming back in Alt's, you will have to keep filing Abuse Reports. Explain in the AR how you know it is the same person.

There used to be a device that would IP ban alt accounts but due to LL's ultimate wisdom they decide to ban this device. They could not do their jobs in enforcing the TOS so they banned the object that performed this task for them. God forbid they are made to look bad. They claimed as a few others did that it was a privacy issue. Personally I think it was an issue of a few controlling the masses. It was kind of like the Hometowners didn't want the wal-marts to sneak in and make them conform to a higher standard of service or organization.

That device revealed nothing more than banning mischievous alts hell bent on making a persons life miserable.

Once again devaluing the game.

You would think LL would have atleast took that technology and implored it into the parcels so parcel owners could have this ability to improve their quality of game play.

We all know now it is not quality of game play LL is worried about.

Or so it appears.

Filing abuse reports in most cases is a total waste of time. Prime example. Shouting objects with repetitive spam, I have personally reported this thing 8 times in the last 2 weeks. Nothing done. Today it is still shouting and rendering about 1/2 of my sim unbearable.

To reply to the IP info gathering being illegal in SL and RL... That is false. Every known website has that capability to include SL. Most of them do collect such information. Example. Search Car insurance for a couple of days then log into  Facebook and observe some of the side bar ads you get. or better yet search Models or singles dating sites. Any thing you choose. That info is gathered from your IP and direct ads are sent to your face book.

It was a privacy invasion and the creator hardly covered himself with glory, inside and outside of SL.

Iam, the marketing exsamples you refer to are cookie tracking tools, not IP gathering, you can easely show this by doing the same test on 2 different computers behind the same router using 2 different subjects, both have the same IP but still show different targeted ads. advertisers know IP#'s are useless for identety tracking as does LL, they nolonger do IP banning on permabans.
