lol not exactly what I meant... there have been a few people of late who seem to have no other posts other than following one person around and complimenting them or boosting their ego when everyone else is, well, being "harsh" I suppose is the word.
Usually the tip off is someone saying "I know the OP in real life and she's a great rider. Keep up the great work OP! You're amazing!" or something similar when the rest of the thread clearly shows otherwise.

Weird...

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Probably not.

It's usually pretty easy to tell the difference between someone who comments on their friend's threads, and someone who goes out of their way to comment on their alter-ego account's threads.

Is there a way to make sure that there is just one account per IP/e-mail address? That would makes things a little harder for the account-cloners... or is something like that already in effect?

I'm surprised this rule wasn't already here. I always thought it was. I'm agree with it for sure.

Wow, goes to show how little I actually pay attention. I have never noticed anything like that, not until I read that one thread where the fact of the matter was posted point blank for all to read - then and only then, did I clue in.

I never even clued in to these double identities *Smacks forehead* DUR!

I agree with the rule - lets just be ourselves.
