I don't understand "hide the bots". Are you saying that either ignoring visits from your own IP or not ignoring visits from your own IP will affect whether you see bot visits? Pretty sure I see them regardless.
Yeh, I'm not getting that either. If I log in from a new address, and manually hide that address. How is that different than the system automatically just noticing that I've changed addresses and hiding the new one for me. Clearly it should work the same as it does now, just without the part of me remembering to go to that stat page.
As it is now, it's hiding an address I may not have used in months. That seems worse.
If I remember correctly, if your router/modem is set up correctly, the site(s) don't read your computer's IP, it's reading the router/modem IP as that's the only public facing one that should be seen. So it shouldn't change as the ISP router/modem should be a static IP, I think.. it's been a while ;)
