One of the interesting things I did when tweaking something on a website was to include a piece of code which does exactly that.
Each visitor is given a different email address. It's made up of their IP address, the Unix time and a partial hash value, encrypted with a private Serpent-256 key.
Decrypting those addresses has been interesting.
