I’ve been recently playing around with an installation of discourse and realized that as an admin, I can see the IP address of all users at all the time. That’s not exactly something I want to see or collect on the server that’s running this platform (read this post if you’re wondering why). I tried looking in the admin section and couldn’t find a setting to disable logging the IP address, and thought about asking that as a feature request. While logging the IP address might not be exactly useful for most forums, maybe we can take advantage of something like EFF’s cryptolog to hash the IP addresses and anonymize them instead of completely disabling them.
I was wondering if anyone has any experience or insight on this topic. And whether it could be considered to be put as an option in the admin section.
Thanks for the great work!
