We have all heard the arguments that its unfair becuase of virtual hosting putting different sites on the same ips.
With the 'tightening up' of ip allocation , is it really feasible for google to ever use this technology to differentiate the quality of inbound links?
i.e. Do i need to ditch my dedicated server and move my sites to different ips?

You don't have to ditch the dedicated server - if your ISP will give you a block of IPs, you can plug that block in and run one site per IP. That way, nobody will know that they're on the same server.
If someone is concerned about it there are a million hosts willing to sell you virtual accounts with unlimited domains for less that $10/month.
PS: No offense so professional spammers, it's a busienss like any other as far as I'm concerned and needs it's own set of skills, and a lot of it to. Respect.
what about getting dif nameservers for sites?
Nah, not necessary. A small or medium sized hosting company will have all of their customers on the same name servers.
I think multiple IPs are ONLY an issue if you're a professional spammer and INTEND on violating Google TSO and need to hide the source of certain sites.
I agree. I wouldn't share an IP with someone else, but I think it's fine for your sites to all be on one.
IMHO the concept that Google would judge the quality of a link by IP is total nonsense fueled by PR paranoia. It falls into the same category as checking the whois information.
Yet Google is a major customer of the D-Tective Reverse Whois service.
What do you say to that?
Now, that is not to question the relevance of these sites, however, it is a pointer that perhaps more investigation of the sites on this ip/whois is or may be required.
I hope this does not happen. Although i do have many releveant sites (all are relevant to the kw search terms they appear for), there may be some slight overlap in their content.
A ban of these sites would be a bad thing from a consumers point of view, and a much worse from my (bank balance) point of view!
