You _think_ your IP is unique?
IPs are supposed to be unique, but if your IP isn't statically assigned to
you (i.e. not changing on you depending upon when you connect to your ISP,
or otherwise expiring with your connection lease), then you cannot rely
upon the IP being useable to identify you.
In any event, the solution which I suggested - using a keyword at the top
of the message body, is entirely feasable for limiting posting even if you
are the only poster -- the sed operation the message is filtered through
eliminates the first line ('sed -e 1d' = delete 1 line, done), which means
that the keyword line is then REMOVED from the message. Heck, using the
keyword method also means you can post from OTHER systems if it becomes
Is it possible?
I suggest that you *READ* my post, since I also included the code to check
