The DM or GM (depending on game) has no levels, s/he is all powerful. 
Are you trying to be smart again?
I told you, I am not a geek! I am a level 12 Paladin.

As to the mechanism, I see three options:
1. Passive -- look into what you get (fingerprint client/OS? See what 
they said about web servers in article)
2. Indirect -- query an outside source (RBL?) for user and/or resolver 
(see what they said about suddenly using a different server)
3. Direct -- have them sign an agreement letting you scan them.

May as well patent it. I had no idea DNSstuff was not longer a private 
tool website, but it does explain the changes that have been happening
