To members that have unapproved sockpuppet (duplicate) accounts:
As you can tell from the recent ban log, the Forum Team has quite a knack for sniffing out sockpuppet accounts. Just to be clear: YOU WILL GET CAUGHT.

It's just a matter of time before we get the sufficient amount of evidence we need. I've been watching Heywood/Alpha Male/CleverUsername for quite some time and I finally gathered the evidence I needed to show that he was a puppet master.

I'm currently watching several of you which I'm almost positive are sockpuppets. The rest of the forum team is aware of this as well and they continually monitor activity.

When we get the evidence we need, you will be banned. Unapproved sockpuppeting is not allowed. We are really close to one of those bannings (I believe you know who you are); however, I wanted to offer this alternative.

Come clean to me or any member of the forum team and the ONE account that you want to keep shall be spared. Your additional accounts will be banned, but we will be merciful and not reveal your main account as the puppet master account in order for you to save face and not be ostracized by the community. The sock accounts will be labeled as such and banned as socks.

But, don't think you're getting completely off the hook. We will be watching your account closely and any suspected new sock activity will result in a ban... no questions.

This is a limited offer and will expire in 1 week (March 25th, 2014).

If you wish to stay unbanned from this forum, but you've already made the mistake of sockpuppeting, go ahead and take advantage of this offer. I consider it very generous.

Besides my meme, I do believe there are MyBB plugins that do all that work for you. If you'd like, I can do some research and give them to you guys?

Thank you, we have those. They don't go far enough though in the age of proxies and so on, additional research is always needed. They do help a lot with obvious cases though.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta
