We can tell if your IP is recycled or if you are using your IP for multiple accounts.

What do you mean by recycled?

The issue of banning IPs has come up on a few sites I belong to and most say they do not ban IPs b/c it is not an accurate way of telling if it is the same person. 

Also, what about IPs on public computers?  Are these banned as well, or limited to one person?

IP's are tracked by mac address, cookies, location and server/browser identification.
