A lot humorous 'posters' wouldn't exist if alternate accounts weren't allowed. I agree that the sockpuppeting nonsense is utter bullcrap though, but I also think that it's relatively rare (and usually obvious). Even if alternate accounts were outright against the rules, malicious people would still use them as it really isn't hard to evade detection if you put in a modicum of effort. By flatly banning them you probably do more harm than good to the 'culture' of what is usually a relatively light hearted forum.Yeah actually I'm surprised they're allowed. Imagine someone being attacked by three or four posters and made to feel like sh*t but it's actually the same fu**en poster. Not saying all would use it for nefarious purpose but some I have no doubt would.
The mind boggles.
