Just to set the record straight and get it allll out in the open. The RNW crowd likes to accuse Topix posters of being a small group of a few people using multiple names. So after some searching I found the link below with Jerry Duke himself advocating multiple user names on RNW. What a hypocrite!

While we do not mind users having more than one username, we have been having a problem recently with users creating SEVERAL usernames...

At this point we will not be deleting any usernames, however, if the problems continues to grow, we will be forced to delete some of the multiple accounts of individual users.

We just do not want this to get out of hand...

Thanks!!!

I am not using IP address because i realize it could be an office, library, etc...

I am basing that on usernames with the same email... Yes they are that obvious... lol

I am not saying you can not have multiple names... only that please do not try and exploit it..

A little late for that my friend.

Why would he even allow someone to have multiple user names? What purpose does it serve other than to deceive. Very unprofessional!

The Cedartown Chat Board does not allow multiple screen names FYI

All of this, because Jerry Duke decided to call out the vacationing EMA Director who refused to return to her county during an "emergency"......... .by the way, that's what the E stands for in her title).........

Elaine Anderson is a perfect representative of Topix..........

Another thing that you will find interesting about the use of multiple screen names by RNW is that as of this post, there are supposedly around 900 registered members but on a daily basis and at any given time there are only 20-30 users and visitors COMBINED on the board. It shows all of this at the bottom of the page. The only reason it rose to 96 was because of the story on the FMC EMS a while back. So, why would so many "REAL" individuals register and then NEVER return? It's because they don't exist as individuals at all, they got scared or disgusted and left, that's why. There's a high probability that several members have created multiple user names and have even mentioned that they were going to create another user name, maybe more, because of the fear of their true identity being discovered either by insiders or outsiders. If you look at the members section of the board at the top, you can see all of the members' user names and how many posts they have made or not made. What you will find is a large number of user names with ZERO posts or very few posts. I would estimate that there are actually fewer than 200 individual active members on the board. Unfortunately, you will have to register to view the members section so if you do, be sure to create a throw away e-mail address to register with because the owner and the moderators can see all of that information once you register as noted in the post above by Jerry Duke.

So, of 900 registered users, only 20-30 are online at any given time..........hmmmmmmmmm, At your local gym/athletic club..........walk in, and see how many people are THERE at that second, then go ask for how many members they have.....then also consider the fact that of those 1000s of members that the gym has (and the 20-30 you see in there), they stay there for an hour or two..........it's possible to check in on RomeWired.com in a few minutes..........you're not too bright, are you?????????

So you think it's a fresh, new set of people every day? It's the same 20-30 people every day whether it's users or visitors. Just look at the usernames to see for yourself.

Nothing of what you said has anything to do with it. See post #57 at the thread link below. Maybe that will clear it up for you. IDIOT, I mean Jerry!

No, go ahead and disagree all you want. I don't mind. It has nothing to do with that though. It's not an opinion we're talking about here. The facts are the facts and the numbers that are claimed just don't mesh and I don't think you or the close followers really see how obvious that is. You also don't see how obvious it is for ALL of us outsiders to clearly see that an average, unconnected, unbiased person or people would NOT defend something so trivial unless it was the owner, family or part of management. How many people do you see on this or ANY other board defending the Rome News Tribune or any other local news agency? ZERO, because they couldn't care less and have better things to do. You're not helping yourself or your organization at all by continuing to deny the obvious and it's insulting to our intelligence for you to do so.

They don't allow them, but there are people with multiple screen names. They can't pin them all down.

Since Jerry is too incompetent to speak for himself gasir, how do you explain the huge 1 person to 5 screen name ratio gap with registered RNW members? Enquiring minds want to know?

This is just a perfect example of what you will encounter at RNW.

Apparently Jerry didn't get the memos above because he is now bragging about reaching 1000 members on RNW. But he had to know because that's who we were talking to above. Anyway, the only reason it jumped to a little over a 1000 USER NAMES and not actual individuals, is because all 100 ACTUAL members rushed to create a new user name, or two or three, after finding out about how they track you and read your private messages over there. Like that's going to help.

LOL, you got him good that time. Unlike this website, where you can be 300 different screen names at one time. LOL
