Ensuring no sock puttets

#1
Not an IT bloke but the site needs to crack down on sock puppets.

How you do it? No idea. However, it needs doing.

Simple. The COs just need to put up a notice saying Sockpuppets are banned then rely on the site loyalty and integrity of ARRSERs to comply.

Easy peasy.

Easy cheers for the answer. I fear far more effort will be required. Credit Card subscription of GPB1 or whatever... would beat putting up with the advertisements.

I'm a former SAS sniper and I have trouble remembering all my usernames and what kit I've stashed in my attic so obviously any rules wouldn't apply to me. Cheers easy.

Although got to admit to Kromz point of nominal subsctiption to post.

It may be just me, but I cannot understand why anyone would want several accounts to post from, unless of course you have multiple personalities, or are simply just a mong...

I'm torn. Do I correct the thread title or not?

On the one hand, it's going to annoy me as is but on the other, the P is nowhere near the T on the keyboard. Maybe it was deliberate?

Who knows (or dares to dream!).

Good idea, while they're about it perhaps they could forbid users from posting while pissed. :roll:

I suppose there's probably a way to limit the number of users who can log on from a particular IP, but that would discriminate against people who live in the block/mess use mobile internet or where two users live together.

A breathaliser app?

I think the COs realise how much site traffic will drop then. There'll be no ****** on at the weekends and some people would never be able to post again.

Nice to see Krom keeping up his abstinence from alcohol.

Kromeriz, if you just top yourself like you keep promising you won't have to worry about it.
Tis a fair point. He could also stop fleeing from country to country over bad depts.
