How so? Any other IP masking technique I can think of would break HTTP and wouldn't work.

Although we have our own computers, from the outside, we come from the same IP. So it would look like somebody had 2 accounts...Unless there is actually some way of distinguishing between computers...or maybe there would have to be exceptions that would have to go through MikeC for approval?
Yeah that multiple-account detector has code that specifically allows exceptions for specified users.
