host address

some irc webclients will mask their users actual (IP or location address)
some dont
if you register your name under NickServ you can ask for a cloak from the networks staff
but for general use and purpose, the majority are pretty much left wide open

example, I enter your chat as Andaro

you can /whois Andaro
and see my IP Address >.<
Now naturally i wouldnt be personally worried, because im personally tech savy
but you can see the problems that would arise from that

Now I understand and I agree I have to add a disclaimer... Can I use your words:

"IRC Allows either individual to see the others host address
So, utilize that are your own precaution."

or any other suggestion?

You're more than welcome to do so,
This may guide you as I was building another project at one point, but unfortunately back burned due to RL issues atm

Try that, feel free to quote or paraphrase. I'm no lawyer but the key is to prevent any liabilities to our gracious hosters. Sorry if my type is a bit off, working on a tablet for awhile.
