Tying the users to an IP or rather the changes to a particular IP is
as good as not storing anything. The only use of logging IPs is when
anonymous users are allowed to edit LOs. For example, a spammer
creates spam articles and you'd want to ban that IP.

Captchas are a good security measure but are vulnerable these days.
Besides, anonymous edits dont serve a good purpose. If you're thinking
of making it easy for people to quickly edit LOs then why not
authenticate against an OpenID account ( see: )?
