Yay evil! :dance:

Actually, no. I'm kind of boring. But some of the good guys are actually girls. What's more, some of the girls are actually women.

I thought he was banned for sockpuppeting? You know, reneging on his agreement not to open multiple accounts. Or, to put it another way, blatant and repeated dishonesty.

He's hinted (confessed?) that he already has a number of sockpuppets over there already (and he's trying to pretend that it's normal for everyone to have them). I guess we'll be seeing him here again someday.

If I get banned, is it ok if I start a new account? Just kidding. But I bet some of your regular members have more than one account, you know, just to spice things up. It's not unheard of.

Why would you bet that?

Well, it's not like I'm a betting man or anything like that, but if I was, I would probably be quite confident in betting that some of you regular, long standing members have sockpuppets. It's not unheard of. In fact it happens more than most people think. And why not? If I was a long standing member myself I'd do it too. It makes you wonder who you're really debating with sometimes.

Unfortunately I think you're right pz. *sigh*

Not all socks are as problematic as Macky Avelli was. Sometimes people make duplicate accounts 'accidentally' as it were, Perhaps they sign up from work because they can't remember their account details or create another account when they've been away from the forum for a while or if they lose their login info when they change their computer etc. But serial sockpuppeteers are invariably rampant attention-seeking narcissists who can't just can't seem to help themselves, and need to provoke and antagonise others out of some bloated sense of their own importance. These types of malicious, disruptive, irrational idiots generally get banned pretty quickly, where the other type just have their accounts merged or the second account deactivated.

Anyway, at least Macky Avelli is no longer troubling the membership here, even if your link shows him boasting about it and plying his trade elsewhere.
