Commenters Behind NAT Have Others' Email Pre-Filled-In (4 posts)

    I've had a couple of users complaining that when they enter comments, someone else's email address (and other info) is pre-filled-in to the comment form. From what I have determined, this is happening because there are about a dozen commenters to my site that are all from the same IP address, behind a NAT at Microsoft.

    Is there any way to disable the IP-based auto-fill, or switch it to a cookie instead? It really is a sort of privacy violation for these users.

    Thanks!

    Okay well if nobody here has an answer, where's the next place I should look for one?

    Probably, nobody encountered a similar situation.
    You may try the hackers list - that's where you can ask the devs...

    WordPress does not have an "IP-based autofill" of those fields. If they are getting one, then they are behind more than a NAT, they are behind a caching proxy of some sort that's doing this for them.
