Identifying anonymous posts.

Hey folks running Bloggen Sites. I recently encountered a situation where the admin of a bulletin board identified an anonymous post I had made, sending me a message.

How easy is it to do this? Is it a simple matter of comparing IP addresses? So anon to the public, and revealed to the admins, is that what the average site is?
