    Here's the thing, I set up email accounts for the purpose of the forum accounts only and never bothered to remember those passwords either.

    After learning my lesson a couple of times, I am happy to say I have both my account and email passwords.

    Sadly my evil anonymous (although it had the same name as this account) sock puppet account count give reps if not I'd have been repping myself all night long, until it hurt.



    Wow, I'm unbanned a year later

    Hope Eduardo wasn't perma-banned. I notice Collins isn't, despite being the 2nd biggest offender of the rule next to Fire11.
    Well, I got Rand started on his campaign (just search around here to see). I advised Thomas Massie before he ran for Congress. I am currently advising 2 liberty campaigns for the state legislature. I ran the war-room and won Minnesota for Ron Paul a few weeks back. There are other things I'm probably forgetting.

    It WOULD explain low vote totals.
    There are no crimes against people.
    There are only crimes against the state.
    And the state will never, ever choose to hold accountable its agents, because a thing can not commit a crime against itself.

    amy31416 and Kludge are two different people, and it's very clear that they're two different people. There are other examples.

    If we have evidence that an individual is using multiple accounts, these rules will apply.
    It ain't just a "hypothetical". Lots of people operated behind firewalls that make multiple accounts look like they have the same IP address. Think of anybody logged in to a university account for example.

    Knowing this was a problem, but realizing that Matt Collins was an example that made it seem ok to have "sock puppet" accounts, we decided to make the announcement and apply the rule on a go-forward basis, so that they were clear in advance of any action being taken.

    And, as I've stated elsewhere, there is no legitimate reason for anyone to be using an alternate account other than (1) rep whoring, (2) circumventing a ban, (3) trolling anonymously.

    Poor logic and even poorer use of the English language. Someone might go for an alt account because they realize it was a mistake to use their real name instead of some anonymous nick name like the overwhelming majority of people here. Some folks are total pricks sometimes, but it's "okay" because they know that nobody who Google's these threads 10 years from know will have a clue who "RonPaulAssKicker" is. So someone might want the freedom to act like the rest of the anonymous horde here. Unless you consider typical behavior "trolling".......

    As far at the use of English, your construction was "these are legitimate reasons for sock puppet accounts". What you meant was "There are no legitimate reasons for sock puppet accounts. The only reason people get them are for ....... and those are reasons for bans anyway". Sorry to go all "MelissaW" on you, but somebody has to.

    It is an exercise in power. It is a demonstration on how power works. It doesn't take much power to be powerful. This is why taking over the GOP won't deliver freedom. The people in power will make sure of it.

    If I read that thread correctly, it sounded like he admitted it and said he'd stop once he was told it wasn't kosher.
    I may have missed something if he did something beyond that.

    I think this is great to get rid of the multiple accounts and the rule should have been put in place long ago.

    I've just read over eduardo's recent posts. I haven't seen anything outside of the rules at all or anything negative at all except for mild criticism of policy in this thread. If that's why he was banned then that's pretty sad.
