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?

Is it possible to block a hubber from visiting your hubpages? if one has been particularly offensive, can they be "banned" from one's hubpages?
