Since you brought it up, let's talk real estate. Do you own a house?
If you do and I know your address then I know who you are and I know
how much you paid for the house because your identity and quite a bit
of information about you is published in the public tax records.

Go ahead and try it with the address in my sig:

As with land, the public has a bona fide interest in knowing who is
using IP addresses in more than a transient way.
