Posted By: Somethingz FishyMlandres: The problem is, unless you're Dave or Jamie, you can only GUESS about multiple screen names on a thread. I've got some pretty good ideas of what screen names are multiples and who is who and which ones they trace back to, but I certainly don't know for sure. And there are some names that I think are aliases but I'm not sure. That's part of the problem. If multiple screen names were just tagged as such, I'd have no problem just ignoring them. But it really bothers me to take a poster seriously and engage them in a dialog only to find out that user name is likely one of three others a person is using on that thread. Further, there are certain posters I've given up engaging with. It drives me nuts to find out that I've ended up inadvertently engaging with them through one of their other names.
Posted By: Tom ReingoldGood idea, kmk, but it's not possible. It's very difficult to prove an identity on the internet.
Posted By: DEFCON CreatorSorry dude, multiple screen names shows insecurity. Kind of like walking into a bar, and talking badly, very loudly, at a bar. When someone confronts you about what you are saying, you make up a name and tell them you are someone else. Pretty weak. BTW : soda rhymes with viscera.
Posted By: caseAgreed, and not just because I like your car (I saw it on Maplewood Ave a week or two ago; I wondered who the hell in Maplewood even knew who Judas Priest was and... there went the Defconmobile).
Posted By: caseSorry to be a nay-sayer, but unless Dave and Jamie implement controls (which may have legal ramifications... I honestly don't know) then this issue is going to go on forever. Same with trolls; there's just no way to stomp it out.

Posted By: casePosted By: Tom ReingoldGood idea, kmk, but it's not possible. It's very difficult to prove an identity on the internet. It would actually be very easy - though I'm not saying it should be done - to simply do an 'age verification' using a credit card. No need for the real name to be used on the board, but it would be pretty easy for Dave and Jamie to associate a username with a real person.
