Sills bot system doesn't do anything illegal in activity. It does not
scan the users computers as can be verified by intrusion detection
software. Also an IP address is not neccessary to fingerprint a used
viewer. There is enough information publicly available from SL servers
alone that allows detection of the viewer being used.

Pretty much a flame post. Don't feed the trolls.
