8 years ago, somebody who had my current IP address edited the Shadow the Hedgehog Wikipedia page to add "Shadow the Hedgehog is hot". IPv4 exhaustion is real and it's terrifying.

@fenwick67 it's not fair that you're getting the credit for this work of art, but i understand your plight
@fenwick67 at least, it's better to be NOT able to identify you using IP address.

Your IP address may be shared between multiple clients and there is no guarantee that guy posted from your current IP yesterday is actually you or someone nearby.

IPv4 exhausting grows the routing tables at first, because subnets aren't organized well. Neighbour \24 subnet may point everywhere on planet.

@fenwick67 similar phenomenon for me, first time I wanted to post something on an imageboard, my IP range was banned :angery:
