    The old admin The Mighty Buzzard admitted it could be done. It is trivial if you know the hash and algorithm to then build a table of all hashed IPs. The hash seed has never been changed per Janrinok. For a pro-privacy site it is pretty horrifying how these simple details are not explained, and the "your IP is never recorded" is at best a grey lie. Supposedly true AC comments have the hashed IP dropped after a couple weeks, but logged in user comments have the IP hash stored forever even if you click "post as AC" which is another grey lie.
