Are there people posting to multiple accounts on here?

There are 2-3 posters, who I will not call out here, who I suspect are the same person.

Mike, I'm sure you have a way of identifying such, but just wanted to note my suspicions.

well..i can honestly understand that thought...

i did, as i've already pointed out many a time, used to post another another name.
my computer crashed, we started a new account with a different provider and for whatever reason, i could not get my old name to be usable...so i transmorgrified...but, i'm still the same old me...
though (rick... :wink: ) i never really was angry, it is just one of my favorite songs

it would be nice to know if we're being snowballed...wouldn't surprise me in the slightest, though: integrity certainly isn't the forte of some, it seems

Every poster has an IP address, every post logs the IP address, and every IP address can be traced to a general location. Thats' how that little window down the bottom can tell who's on from what part of the world. Braniac is just paranoid because more than one person has drawn the same conclusion...

If you were so full of yourself JJS you might make some sense once in a while. In general you are correct but anyone keen with software and IT, can disguise their IP address. Gee I thought you knew that?

Yeah, I did. And then you'd have accounts with random IP addresses usually coming from different parts of the world. Do you? Does the three accounts" brainiac suspects as being from the same person come from a different part of the world each time that user posts?
