Webstats can track me easily!

My own webstats and my friends webstats (he's not a PlusNet customer) show clearly my having visited his and my site:

You can clearly see me at the bottom there of his log. Most traffic is identified as being from a generic server or host, so why am I so easy to track? I'm on the Broadband package with a fixed IP. Are all users so easy to identify? It's quite scary that you can be tracked so easily wherever you go as a Plusnet customer. My friends tin foil hat nearly fell off when he saw how obvious it was that I'd been on his site. Is there anything I can do to be less obvious? or something PlusNet can do? This is surely a privacy issue, for what little privacy we have as Net surfers.
