I think what Bruce meant about everyone having static IPs was not
"Surely each ISP can get enough addresses so that each customer
could be assigned a static IP thus providing a one-to-one mapping
from IP address to person, then we could easily pin-down
spammers from the sendmail tracks left in the email headers.
"Gee, wouldn't it be nice if every person had one and only one IP
so we'd have a one-to-one mapping from IP address to person,
then we could easily pin-down spammers from the sendmail tracks
in the headers.
