    If they do it by IP address, why couldn't you have a "fake noob" that resides at work or the library?
    You could...

    And that's how I would recommend doing it..

    I think most guys do it to post REALLY out of bounds stuff..of course, that would mean different things there, than here.

He banned me for saying he was entirely wrong about an autobody type paint subject (of which he knows nothing) they say you can kiss & make up with him & get back in but I will see if I buy a scoot before I bother...

    Apparently the State of the Union Address came on and the fake n00b's thread went astray due to lack of attention but came back with added zeal....
    Things really went off the rails and BigMak got banned and pretty much the whole thing was blamed on the fake n00b, resulting in the ban.

    I'd like to sincerely apologize for my retort to to Rad..If someone besides Rad was offended..you're a touch too sensitive..

    While I thought it clear, I started the thread just for laughs....this forum isn't the place to carry out those kinds of of exploits...as evidenced by some replies..

    That being said, it's all in fun...a two week break from ADV is probably a good thing...especially if you spend much time in the basement..

    Cheers all...

    I read this whole thread. Understood very little. In 2 yrs from now tech time, that will be like 30 Years old time I probably won't have a clue what anyone says in texts, email, on forums or in face to face real life!

    Guess I'll just keep my earplugs in, helmet on, and keep riding.

    In forums that have some kind of trash bin section where anything goes, it is not unusual for a person to have multiple user names. Over at STN for a long time they called them sock puppets. I'm pretty sure that is a more wide spread term than just on STN. The admins "should" be able to detect them by looking at the ip address, mac address or other packet information to see if it is a duplicate. Normally, just creating more than one username is not a banning offense, but a lot depends on the rules of the forum or whether or not the site owner has a few screws loose. If you have ever spent some time on the FJRForum you will absolutely know what I'm talking about.

    How do the mods differentiate between bogus duplicate IDs and two legit people using the same computer.... I wonder?

    I think there may be members here that have "sock puppets" just so they have someone to bicker with.
