This is a trivial "feature/flaw" I've been holding onto for a bit, and it's
probably commonly known, but I haven't seen it posted anywhere, more of a
neat little thing in taking advantage of IRC and it's treatment of dyndns
within DNS if reverse lookup is possible.
[..]
By this time, your dyndns should have updated and changed your ip address to
127.0.0.1, and irc servers don't re-check after you've connected (so anyone
resolving your hostname will come up with 127.0.0.1).

You can retrieve the IP address of any user on irc via the STATS L
command (the uppercase L is important).

For privacy reasons some networks (most notably Undernet but also
Freenode) have disabled this command for users that do not have IRC
Operator status.
