i may have clocked 2000 posts but i am still a bloody noob to CS.

my friction with joho in portraiture has made me learn new things.
someone pm me and told me it's NOT uncommon for members here to have multiple nicks.

is it true?
if so, WHY?

and i thought CS admins has ways of knowing IP address and banning smurfies?no?

should have told me earlier....i could have created christopher grey or ansel adams, so you guys wont dare make a single comment about my pic.

PS:dont pm me with regards to my friction with joho ya?we're cool with each other, the only problem we have is we are both god damn frank, and that's where the sparks ignite.
i still love him though...:kiss: :kiss: :kiss:

Clones are not new around forums.

As for WHY.... Well, some do it with a guilty conscience (like having multiple nicknames, one for kopitiam to talk rubbish, one to dig for knowledge without searching and one to do trading). These bunch ought to be shot.

Like I'd said, its a matter of 'face'.

By registering clones around, one can sprout rubbish and appear like a bloody troller, flame baiter or an anti-establishment peep without repercussion (save for being banned).

On another hand, by registering a 2nd nick, he may be an experienced (in breadth, not depth) photographer and start to ask absolutely dumb questions (like, "How come my pictures so dark? Is my lens spoilt?") which he can't post with his kopitiam nick cos of fears of sarcasm or misdirected advice due to perceived 'hatred' some of us might have towards him due to his nature in kopitiam.

Registering a 3rd nick would allow him to trade and get away as a newbie so that he can be 'let off the hook' (in a way) by crashing prices last minute and to divert attention away from his dumb questioning in the specialised subsections and his constant trolling in Kopitiam.

Put in short - living with a bad conscience and with no balls to boot.

For someone with more dedicated cloned attack trolls gunning for my head, welcome to the real CS. There are lots of smurfs, clones, trolls and other magical creatures, good ones and bad ones, all over. It's actually quite OK, not tht dangerous a place, as long as you have a thick skin. Mine is very thick.

Of course, it's equal opportunity slamming, if the hair is messy, I won't mince my words.

Like I'd said, its a matter of 'face'.

Now, wimps, I cannot stand.
