How many people on here do you think have multiple accounts? In looking at a few of the newer, or anonymous accounts, the comments, posts and agendas seem almost identical to certain other individuals. What do you think about it?

Explained by JustJimColo...

Do people generate fake accounts and make posts so it looks like "others" are agreeing with their agendas? I see some of these accounts come and go. Are these just "throw away" accounts, or accounts to reach people who have blocked them? Just curious.

I'm certain that people do. Especially when I see comments with 5 downvotes from "unregistered users". The **** couldn't be more obvious. Some people are so small they have to create a fiction that they're being agreed with and supported when I'm sure in reality no one wants anything to do with them.

Good question.
I believe there are several who have multiple accounts and several sock accounts too. I have one but there is one that is Synyster which had to be changed to SynysterGates becasue of technical issues.

BTW, this is just my opinion, remember Every Opinion Matters. (hehe)

I've always wondered what those unregistered users mean, I thought it's some bug or something.

I'm also curious about that. The "why" is what bothers me. I barely have enough time to handle my own account without having another to bother with. As far as votes and agreeing on things? I think that's all rather childish although I've seen it on other sites too. I was a mod on blurtit for a few years and got pretty good at catching them. I see no need to make more than one account.

That's because you're transparent Rooster. What we see, is what we get. People like you don't feel a need to hide behind a different name when you say something.

I feel certain that there are, jim.
I try to pay attention to writing styles. And the seemingly intentional covering up of writing styles.
What a pain that must be...and the time. Geeze......

How true Carla. I don't understand some people. You aren't going to agree with something I say just because I use a different name. Some people aren't as clever as they think they are.

I don't try to keep up with them. I used to spend some time comparing and trying to figure them out, but all it did was piss me off, and piss them off when I challenged them. If someone wants to come back with a good attitude and have some fun, I'm all for it. If they are just a bad apple that wants to make trouble, they will show their colors soon enough. They usually can't help themselves. JMHO.

Pretty sure I know who McInsect is the sock for. Why do it? I imagine that they want to be able to post their more radical views without the criticism being directed at their main account. Pretty wimpy really. I just say all of my crazy shit right here.

I was a moderator on two sites. one is still active one is not. First~ imp accounts are a part of the internet. 2nd~ The people who complain the most or point the fingers the most are usully the ones with the most multiple accounts. My experiance only but we were advised of that while training.

I've noticed a few. I think if the rule against having more than one account is going to be enforced, it should not be be enforced so selectively.

I have to admit....so much of all this shit......the multiple accounts, the power plays, the associations; who's bonded to who......they all go past me. I have no idea. I rely on those far more savvy than myself to clue me in. I don't try to keep up with it.

I can't really say, usually people give themselves out because of their opinion, most used words or overall style of writing.

I haven't been around much to see what the newest members are saying, but from before, I only know of one member that keeps coming back with different accounts after being suspended/banned. There's probably more, but I don't think it's that many. Maybe 3 people?
