If IP addresses are stored for each account, could there be an option to compare the IP addresses of multiple accounts automatically? The result would be "in the same IP range", "the same IP", or "different IPs." Another option could be a percentage match between the IP's

Does anyone support this, if this is possible?

Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

It would be effective to some degree but to be honest if sock puppets want to exist on here they'll find a way. The only thing you can do is exercise caution when trading on here by using services like escrow by John.K.

How would you ever implement this? I am online on this forum right now at this moment with 2 absolutely different IPs depending on if I decide to use my phone or decide to use my notebook to post.

It would be good for the sake of trading to be able to identify that a person is NOT using a TOR exit node. Of course, that might also increase requests for IPs to the forums which could affect the administrator's time, but eventually (if not already) police from some country may request IP logs from the forums.

Greyhawk has a very good point. Multiple users post with their phones, company ip's etc. Potentially You would may be stopping people registering if they work in the same office etc.
