How do we know if someone is posting on pip under two or three different names? I know mods can tell with IP address, but even that can be ever changing,

Like if someone was banned or something bad happened under their old name, and then they come on under a new name?

I mean if they are, I feel stupid when I welcome them to PIP etc. if they are already a Pip member trying to get around the mods?

Just a curious question...lol?

Ron knows, usually right away. I would say if you think someone that has been banned is posting under a different name, trying to get around the ban, email him with your thoughts, and have some information, not just a guess kind of a thing. and? yeah lots of members have more than one name, I wouldn't feel stupid for welcoming them. Sometimes they use different names to try out different styles of poetry, or maybe to post something they don't want people to know that "X" posted something like that, or maybe to be able to post something in mature, without worrying about freaking anyone out.

hope that helps.
