    I was just wondering if anyone else has noticed the increased amount of members with multiple accounts?
    I'm not here to point fingers, you'll have to do the detective work for yourself.
    I have been reading posts and on several occasions i've noticed what seems to be the same person using lets say a coffee shop(outside address) to make up a fake persona and actually talk back and forth with themselves.
    I noticed on one thread a member using another alias compliment himself, it's so obvious.
    It's always the same, a new account with an outside address, and there's never if seldomly any photos or any info. in the profile, and the post count is always super low.
    It seems that the smarter ones have a sleeper alias, which is a ficticious member that they use on occasion when needed.
    Some of these accounts go way back, so it would imply that some of the members doing it are long time members.
    They should be ashamed of themselves, especially since some are probly the hardest on others.
    Do as i say not as i do doesn't cut it, your attempts to decieve are so obvious i can't start to understand why some havent been caught, either than it's not just a few but many who if outed would cause a ripple effect.
    So yes, i'm on to you and several others, you should have your bottoms spanked.

    No I never notice it, and don't have interest in doing it.

    Is it possible that you are mistaken or paranoid?

    I did suspect one person this week, but have no way to prove or disprove it.

    Hmm, you better watch out, Prepstud will be on your case. Don't worry you'll be able to spot him easily, he'll be wearing a brown shirt.

    Lafever always has to make posts about fakers or those hiding behind other account names. He does have a knack for needing to let out his frustrations about it quite often.

    I could be that i'm off but i doubt it, i've been paying close attention over several months.
    And yes, you are right, there is no way to prove it unless they make a mistake. I'll pm you two examples.
    Not much gets passed me, the behavior is consistant, which tells me without their knowing it, you can't hide patterns of behavior.
    It would seem as though it's a clever tactic to boost their own egos.

    It just gets frustrating, especially when you know but you cannot proove it unless you compare personalities. At times it's so obvious that i wonder to myself if i'm the only one who can spot this.
    I guess it comes down to solid proof, which would explain why the mods are so relaxed about it.
    How do you proove something that exists in the mind and actions of others?
    It can't be done, unless they totally slip, which is doubtfull, since they are clever enough as it is.
    Am i pissing into the wind? I'm sure that's the case but i just wanted to vent for a moment my frustrations.

    I guess i dont pay all that much attention to similarities in posters. Either they piss me off all the same or they all kiss ass just the same, everyone inbetween is a blur- minus the people i talk to regularly.

    Gosh, my PM box is full.

    I guess you'll just have to report the posts like everyone else who suspects mischief does. What a novel concept.

    I'm discussing the matter with several other members as to if we should expose them or not.
    I don't want to base my accusations on just my belief, so i'm getting a concensus.
    Although some members get on my nerves at times they are atleast genuine and have the ability to grow on you.
    However, the ones using multiple accounts to boost their own egoes are clearly breaking the tos.
    The majority will rule here in just a few as we go over the evidence.

    I have two accounts. I wanted to change my username. I asked in the help desk and never got an answer so I just made a new one. Stopped posting here for a long time so it didn't matter anyway but now I'm sort've back. I still log into the old one to look at pics since it's photo verified but I try to only post with this one. Either way I wouldn't want to have a conversation with myself. I'm boring.

    Ok, the jury has come to a decision, there are many to discuss but two have made it very obvious and i have agreed to let another member out them in do time as they have been waiting for a blessing in disguise, plus i'm a nut and no one wants to hear what i have to say much of the time anyways.
    Discuss amongst yourselves now.
