I guess once you have been banned multiple times or are fed up enough you begin to stray from traditional posting methods . You know..the "one screen name".
You start to use different methods meant to rile up/try and confuse your online enemies.
Let's review

1. Sock puppeting. This is when you actually steal (or slightly modify) someones screen name and begin posting using said name. You are hoping to confuse and embarrass that person and other posters.

2. Multiple screen names. When you have used so many because you evidently have been banned before..just say "F this" and start just coming up with one screen name after another..often maybe a least one a day. This will attempt to overwhelm the other posters who will possibly doubt the identity of the poster. This poster hopes it looks like like there are many different poeple who share their viewpoint..but in reality is only one person. Think.."Hall of mirrors" trick in a fun house. "Look..I'm surrounded"

3. Passive aggresive spammimg. Just flood all the posts with outwardly banal posts (look it up) with occasional opinion thrown in. The opinions/writing style are identical to one another. And obviously all these neew posters didn't pop up from Wayne county all at once.

Also..the names have to be somewhat topical to show that they pay attention to the news. Typing in zip codes is not too hard.

Is that why three of our new posters from Newark NY are now suddenly posting from Iraq?

Topix has hit the skids with the Newark poster that is now up to four names, Biracial (a significant offender/spammer/moron) using multiple identifiers - along with many others.

One problem locally is that T-W Cable lumps huge areas into one region.

An example is Fairport. It covers Pittsford, much of Henrietta (east side), Fairport, parts of Penfield, Mendon and more. It is impossible to determine where the poster is.

Topix delineates IP addresses loosely (and why shouldn't they). The only way to solve this is use the first six numbers in you IP address appended automatically to your screen name. Of course, posters would go nuts that it is an invasion of their privacy.

“Lovin' you is fuuu-uuun...”

The "Crew" was getting several of us banned left and right.
After the third time I said the heck with it, I should NOT have been banned at all.
Everyone knows topix moderators are left leaning and coddle the blacks.
Now I seldom use my registered name other than to send an ocasional private message to a few.

I never used another name but was accused of it some many times (Briracial) Why not. As yoy see the Biracial clutz is still at it.

Exactly. Having a registered name is dysfunctional. Our minority members will protest a post and Topix slams the door shut. It's discrimination.

You should pack it in and leave altogether.
