There is no way that I am aware of doing this, via the WSA. You could run a script on the log file, to convert your IP into a dash (-) before running the logs into a separate reporting program (such as Sawmill).

There is no way to change the onbox reporting in this way.

Alternatively you could do this in Sawmill itself as a log filter - just match on your IP address, and rewrite it to something else or remove the log entry entirely.

As Josh has said, there's no way to do this on the box itself.
