I guess I'm getting slow. It used to be posting from
multiple accounts was an auto nuke and now it's just a wrist
slap? .

I think You accidentally added a letter(t) to your post let me help you out with that.

EvenBob: "I guess I'm getting slow. I used to be posting from

Yes you are getting slow if you only have 3 separate identities and post on 4 different message boards.

you asked, When did that change? When they realized site membership would drop by 1/3.

If Mike can find a good IP/computer sniffer. Something that logs the device used and pinpoints VPN usage or whatever works best I would be willing to donate for this.

At least make someone have to work harder and buy multiple devices.

I'm all for attaching cookies if needed.

Huh? Logging the device used is pretty much impossible. You only get the information that the browser sends.

Browser fingerprinting works surprisingly (scarily) well. You can get around this by using a different browser (I have 3 installed that I use for different things) or randomly changing some settings.

IP address is a horrible way of identifying people, especially in this day and age where people move around with mobile devices.

I'm not an expert on this. I thought each device has a special serial number or something that can be tracked.

Mobile devices generally have device ids that may be sent by some apps. They are not included in a request that a browser sends.

The closest thing on a computer is that your network card has a MAC address, but that is only used locally (within a network) and not sent to the server.

Agree in more ways than one. We can call it the egalite sniffer and give Evenbob/Spike the chance and ability to push the nuke button. Ha ha.

He would have to nuke himself.

I'm wondering whether this "oh, he can't help it" attitude has become a self-fulfilling prophecy. He's not a child. He's not even intellectually impaired. There's nothing at all subjective about "no sockpuppetry"; the only reason for him to think he could get away with it is if he thought the rules didn't apply to him, and the only reason for him to think that is if it's a belief that's been continually reinforced by breaks like this.

I'm not saying a two-week suspension necessarily isn't enough - certainly it would be massively unfair to increase it now - but the reasoning behind it is irksome.
The trick to poker is learning not to beat yourself up for your mistakes too much, and certainly not too little, but just the right amount.

Welcome to America...2014. Add in the unemployed, unmotivated and just plain lazy and you are spot on.
