    Well, if the sock gets banned now, it's not coming back. You will still get spanked. Excessive sock abuse will lead to perm. banning for your real user name.

    Shorty, if you've forgot, then they are probably not worth remembering...

    If they are such a menace, why do you use one, LMM?

    Only three names? I have ten aliases, and I don't consider any of them a regular name. But because you think we should stick with one, [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=229477]here[/link] [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=235640]are[/link] [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=234896]the[/link] [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=238532]links[/link] [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=238684]to[/link] [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=283161]all[/link] [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=236678]ten[/link] [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=239708]of[/link] [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=235719]my[/link] [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=238418]aliases[/link]. Which should I stick with?

    -- But you have to understand that something had to be done about those with upwards of 50-100 aliases.

    Holy crap. People here have *that* much time on their hands that they register 50-100 usernames? Bizarre.

    Excellent policy, IMHO.

    Utin, if you gotta go with one, it should either be Lt. Utin, Jawa Thread Cop or Combustible Insect.

    However, I suggest fighting The Man and just cut some dead weight. Maybe get rid of five¿

    I remember ALL the 689 socks of mine off by heart.

    I only use them when the time is right but nothing offensive comes out of them, they're like fun toys to play with.

    :D

    =)
    you think im stupid enough to get caught? =)

    I dont see what the big deal is if someone uses 5, or 10.

    I think you should worry more about threads that are just all sock posts talking back and forth.

    OK, What is the point in introducing rules which cannot be universally applied and therefore will only be used as a handy banning excuse if an admin gets the huff.
    Why not limit ot one per e-mail address instead?

    I'd love for it to be that simple, unfortunately that isn't possible.

    And no one is saying you can't "play" with socks. You just can't do it excessively.

    I think we've been through all of that. And limiting one sock per email address doesn't stop anything. You can get a yahoo or hotmail acount in less than a minute. We did have that feature when we were on ubb. There were less socks and it would be a nice feature to have, but we don't. We would need the rule anyway even if we had that feature.

    The cleanser of soles everywhere shall remain. I have been chosen to be one of the few socks kept by tenorjedi.
    I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I am that strange white residue on your sleeve. I am with you always.
