    Unhappy Banned on DP...again

    I think I'm done attempting to contribute at DigitalPoint Forums. I was banned, again.

    Dear xy7luke,

    You have received an infraction at Digital Point Forums.

    Reason: Multiple Accounts (Permanent Ban)
    -------
    Not allowed.
    -------

    This infraction is worth 10 point(s) and may result in restricted access until it expires. Serious infractions will never expire.

    All the best,
    Digital Point Forums
    You have been banned due to infractions.

    Date the ban will be lifted: Never

    The DP mods are ridiculous. If I had done anything wrong ever in the first place I would have tried to be sneaky, but I've been banned several times and the only reason behind them is multiple accounts, when that's the only rule I've broken. If I hadn't been banned in the first place none of it would have happened.

    Without strong authentication, rules against multiple accounts are unenforceable.

    The existence of rules which are unenforceable creates an environment where rules are randomly (and apparently capriciously) enforced. This results in a lack of respect for both the rules and the rule enforcers.

    I agree to that

    But then i do feel the need of something which can determine the usage of multiple accounts. It can surely save lots of us from being scammed.

    LOL, what did you expect? If it's too easy for the DP mods to find your duplicate accounts...

    DP is still a good place where you can learn a lot but it's not what it used to be anymore..

    That would require a good authentication mechanism, like requiring government ID's to be submitted with account applications. Except those can be forged very easily when they are transmitted electronically. Phone verification is almost as good, but it's a lot of hassle unless you build or buy an automated system.

    With no system for reliable verification in place, it is advisable to accept that every other person on a forum could be the same poster. Rules against multiple accounts give people a false sense of security. I think it's better to have a real sense of insecurity.
