yeah but all it would take is for that mama to open up there account form a different IP address and then no one is the wiser. That is easy enough. Use a friend computer and a different email address.

I am sure the mods work as hard as they can to make sure then scammers are not coming back in but if they (the scammers) want in bad enough I am sure there are always ways around it.

It's absurdly easy to come back with a new IP depending on your service provider. On a forum I was on we had a feature that kept "banned" people from logging out but then quarantined them at the same time. It could be gotten around but still it was clever.

both accounts were found/banned at the same time. she didn't create one, get banned then create another :thumbsup: I assure you The entire Mod/Admin team are busting our butts to try to keep DS safe, some just manage to slip in under the radar. Bound to happen when there are 20,000 plus members :sadno:

I completely understand this...I mean I highly doubt MM is running 20,000 + members or anywhere near it so I don't think the OP can even compare DS to MM:thumbsup:

did she have to register twice to use both screen names.....did she register twice using the same IP addie.....There is a way to only allow ONE SN per IP addie....I think.

yes there it but it gets thrown off by the number of users that are using dial up and they will have MANY Ips for each person and sometimes be up to 50 people on the same IP
