    Yes! I have created a plethora of new accounts! And you, you poor and pathetic janrinok, will never be able to sort out the real from the puppets! So you will have to ban them all, as you have been doing. Only noticed, oh, four? new users posting. UIDs over 25,000? And I suspect they are all Runaway puppets. So what is your solution, my dear authoritarian janrinok? Do we ban them all? Do we challenge all potential new accounts, and ask them to prove that they are not aristarchus? Because, you know, some of them are. Maybe the vast majority of them are. Or, perhaps ALL OF THEM ARE ARISTarCHus!!! The Horror, the horror.

    And, no, seriously, I recommend that you read, or re-read, Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, just to make sure you are not replaying it here. Of course, someone make the same recommendation about Moby Dick, but not being American, yours is Spotted?

    Your sock-puppets have been disabled. The other new accounts have all been successful (10 in the last 24 hours). So we are hardly banning "them all, as you have been doing."

    Only noticed, oh, four? new users posting. UIDs over 25,000?

    Taking into consideration that there is a bot creating around 100 fake accounts a day I am entirely happy with the count of new users - which you seem to have under-calculated. Perhaps you are not including those who moderate or make submissions, or who have accounts but chose to post as AC on the front pages anyway. Of course, that wouldn't support your claims quite so well, would it?

    I am not interested in knowing who people are or where they live. My interest starts and stops at our servers.
