As long as it makes it so admins don't HAVE to use the mod once it's enabled, I support.

Hardly anyone has fixed IPs these days, thus do not think it is required.

The only benefit is locking after several attempts, if people have secure passwords this is also not required.

Yes , but If someone tries to access some other person's account , and types password wrong (4-5 times) , the account gets automatically locked .

SMF Software does this already, does it not? After 3 attempts you get locked out for 15mins by default or you could set it higher.

I might be wrong but im sure it as this feature.

Ye but having anything that locks you out permanently will become a nightmare, especially on a network as big as smfnew.
