I don't think it makes a big difference. 

I'm talking about a group with a "FOR THE LULZ!" motto. I don't think they

That will take some work though. At my house there are 5 computers that could 
run a SL client, that's 5 MACs, all behind the same NATed IP address. Schools, 
workplaces, cafes, etc could have hundreds of legitimate ones.
