AMO records commenter's IP, probably to easily spot duplicate comments or returning shrills/trolls.
Unluckily a side effect of the proxy cache is hiding this info: all the comments appear to come from 10.2.81.4.
Moving to Public Pages as that is where reviews originate. I think this is still a problem in Remora. (Also occurs with download logging)

Does the Netscaler pass on the original user's IP in a request header? If not, can we make it?

If it can't, this is a classical "CANTFIX" I'd say. But if we can get the cache to pass it on to the app server, we should put some magic into place to fish the right IP out of the request.

CCing mrz because he knows how the Netscalers roll.

HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR, iirc.

Client IP is passed along as X-Forwarded-For.
This isn't an issue anymore.
