We are an online dating site and we check every person who joins IP before approving them. Recently we got this description as to a specific IP:

Below the description and the geolocation map was the following comment:
User Comments About 184.108.40.206
"This is likely a mail server—not an individual. Comments about an individual may not apply to the person you are talking to."
This has caused me to ask a few of questions:
1. How does someone use a mail server to complete and submit a registration form on a dating site?
2. Who is Softlayer Technologies and why do we get a lot of Scammers trying to register from that ISP?
3. What did the commenter mean when he/she wrote "Comments about an individual may not apply to the person you are talking to."?
Thanks for any assistance...
