    I just wanna see everyone's opinion on this but have you noticed all the rude, impolite, racist etc..... threads are always people with like 4 posts.....i think that users on UKL are signing in on different names to slur and then going to there actual name because not long after the thread is started the user is offline....am i the only one that thinks this or is it just speculation??????

    it would be wrong to speculate. the mods could maybe find out by checking the ip's that are recorded. unless the people are changing their ip's first.

    more likely it's just people who come across the forum in google and have nothing better to do than tease people.

    Well yeah, there aren't many other ways that it could be hapenning.
    Its just an attempt to ruin this forum for those who want to use it properly.

    this wouldn't work as you can get programs that show a new ip each time you connect to the internet.

    You mean multiple accounts.....? I really do not understand the people who have more than one account. What is the point...? I only have one account, this one....

    Is it possible to do that?? :confused: I'd have thought that the system would recognise that the users were from the same machine/ip address or something???

    EDIT: Oh no! What a horrible post count!!

    my boyf signed up for an account here the other day when he was bored and sent me a pm... he also said he went out of his way to try and wind people up as well. So yes it is just silly people trying to have fun.

    not that i know of! But i would think that alot of our UKL users are in college or uni and can use many machines so it wouldn't make a differance. It sucks coz were all trying to get gems the proper way...so much hard work!!!
