You can track us by looking up IPs?

Someone on here just said he has a friend that tracks IPs. So does that mean that anyone can just find out who all of us are? If that's the case, is it best I never visit here again for my own safety and privacy?

    They find ways around it. MFP can and will track IP's.

    Without knowing anything about how MFP operates, they can't be any worse than any other site or ISP. We should just assume that, unless stated otherwise as a selling point, everyone can (an probably does) track IP info and likely more. It's called metadata and is the cost of participating in this awesome thing called the internet.
