Best Answer

WikiAnswers shows the IP address of posters that haven't registered. Without an IP address or a name, there's no way to differentiate the people who are asking or answering questions. Most people, even broadband users, have dynamic IP addresses that are changed periodically by their providers as well. And, the range of IP addresses used by providers is easily available to anyone who knows where to look. So, showing the IP address of a poster isn't opening up any new vulnerabilities.
