    Should we allow a person or two to have multiple ID's and in effect control the conversation on any topic? Its happening and its just not right

    It's just another lame attempt to silence the opposition.

    Each account should have a drop down alias list like the old Yahoo boards - much fun. Multiple IDs don't allow control of a conversation any more than a single ID does. Each are limited to the typing speed and talent of the poster.

    What multiple IDs do is REALLY open the game up and introduce new layers of complexity. Moderation isn't affected, all alias IDs are traceable to the root account. Make the site more fun and you get more posters - and that means revenue.

    From the rules: "Individuals are allowed only one (1) account. Anyone found to be in violation risk, having all accounts banned."

    If you suspect someone has mutliple accounts then report them, the Mod's have tools to determine if the same person is logging in under different accounts.

    Yes, but those tools are limited. One need only to know how to get around them.

    Doesn't change the impact on the OP. Multiple accounts are not allowed. When discovered the user will be banned.

    It is fairly safe to assume said poster will never sock in.
