@Frumph - The above pretty much covers my point ... tl;dr the actual theme
code but that is not the point I was working from. It is the IP address of
a person from a discernible site with a specific originating code point
that, for the most part, the person (site "owner"?) is completely unaware
they are sending.

Hidden fields and the data they are reporting are not so much the issue
(there are valid use-cases) as the specific data that this form field is
sending for, at least at this time, no known reason.
