Re: $400 per year

Any forums that allow images, I always assume you have no privacy anyway. It's simple to embed a 1x1-pixel transparent tracker gif. By matching up the server logs for the server hosting the gif with posting times it's fairly trivial to extract IP addresses for forum members over time.
