    Sock puppets

    Just a quick reminder folks, sock puppets are against the terms of service. Next time we have to ban one, we will also be banning EVERY other account that has used that IP.

    I believe its called 'harsh but fair'.

    A fictious account name to post under and conceal who you are. Typically it is someone who has an account but wants to make an inflammatory post but doesn't want it done in his name.

    Re: Sock puppets

    Hi

    That's probably me - I could not remember my password for this account for ages and also forgot my password for the email account so could not reset it, so I had to create a new rebreather world account to use for messaging.

    I've never posted from the other account. If I have something to say, I'll say it, I don't need another account to do so.

    But I do need the PMs out of that other account as I'm trying to arrange to look at a rebreather. Please re enable so I can get the PMs then you can delete the account.

    Many thanks

    In terms that I can understand:

    "an account for an obvious AS*HOLE that needs to grow a pair"

    Sound right?

    Yup, the term balless rectal aperture comes to mind.

    Re: Sock puppets

    I have long despised the idea people posting without having a real name. If your can take the time and effort to post you can put your real name in your profile and in your signature line.

    Sock Puppets ie: folks who need to have an alias and a fictitious name on a webboard like this need to find something else to do.

    Cheers

    The only reason to suspect a sock puppet is if they are posting inflammatory stuff. Otherwise no one really cares to scrutinize anyones identity. There is no reason for it.

    Also, I believe (not 100% sure) the boards can only ID the ISP it comes from and not the individual computer so if your friends have the same provider they would appear identical to you even on a different computer.
