I know that my IP address seems to stick around, sometimes for days or even longer. I haven't actually tried to figure out exactly when it changes, though I do know it changes. I am willing to bet that I can be tracked to ET through even a temporary IP address if there was a desire to do so by my service provider, unless they are very careful to erase their logs or direct them to dev/null. Of course my service provider may refuse to release such information, but in the US I wouldn't bet very much on that.
I have noted that there are services that provide random ip addresses. Come to think of it, I believe that at least one person has been tracked through such a service and charged with a crime.

I can't imagine any reason why he would need anonymity to post this - at least from a US point of view. It's what Rush Limbaugh spews from the radio on a daily basis.
In a way I'm glad Jerome posted it though so everyone can see what kind of crap inundates our e-mail boxes and radios over here. Not to mention our eardrums.
Two years ago I went to a festival in a small rural town and sat next to a local couple at a fish fry. While I waited for the person I was with to get us drinks, I eavesdropped on the local couple. For the next fifteen minutes I heard about how the country was in a terrible mess and it was all because of Bill Clinton and how untrustworthy Bill Clinton was and did you know that Bill Clinton stole all the china off of Airforce One when he left office? That just goes to show how evil Bill Clinton is. It was all I could do to not turn to them and say "turn off your radios, stop listening to Rush Limbaugh, google up some news reports and see how that story was debunked YEARS ago." But I didn't because the person I was with would have been pissed at me for getting into (yet another) political argument.
