    We have seven reader comments on one of our online sports stories about our local minor league hockey team's playoff game last night.

    Six of those comments are from the same IP address. More so, three are positive ("Go team! Great coverage Podunk Press!" and three are negative ("This team sucks!! We want more (insert national team of interest) coverage!!!).

    That's right ... six comments from one IP address noting completely different perspectives.

    Six clients of one ISP which uses one address for itself and assigns random DHCP addresses to its users internally that don't make it to the outside world, probably.
