Well the simple way is to use an ISP that assigns IP addresses on the fly as you log in - that way they know which ISP, but not which customer (the ISP's accounting logs though might be able to be used to figure this out). A even simpler way is not to register yourself with DNS that way just your IP address gets logged - but it's pretty easy (whois) to figure out your domain anyway and if it's foo.com and there's only one regular on ars from foo.com ..... Many companies have proxy servers - these are part of their firewall it makes everyone from within the company end up being logged as the same machine (for example everyone from sgi who hits my web site comes in as sgigate.sgi.com. The obvious solution is a public anonymous proxy server that makes every acces that goes through it look like it's coming from the same place - as someone mentioned before it looks like there are people working on this ...... it will be a bandwidth pig on whoever hosts it - when they bring them up you should go easy on them and only use them when you really need to.
