ip addresses

    I noticed the ip address of my own and everybody who comments on my article shows up after each comment. Is this safe? Is it a new thing? or, is it some flaw in my article?

    No, they have always appeared on comments.

    It helps with identifying spammers.

    As WryLilt said, this is nothing new. But only you and HubPages staff can see it. No one else can. If you log out and look at your comments, you'll see what I mean.

    Oh, thank you Glenn, I was worried that everybody could see them and I really didn't think that was a good thing. I have already logged out and checked and I didn't see them anymore.
