Thanks for bringing up the question, Maje. It's actually a potential issue for the site staff, as well, in that the CF rules forbid having more than one account. The logic behind that rule
, however, is to prevent a single
individual from "talking" to himself in a thread, playing good cop / bad cop to stir up trouble.
When a couple creates two separate accounts from the same computer, the site software
will catch this and the site staff will need to sort it out. In the case of a couple doing that, we understand. We even have a pair of members in Australia
who share the same computer but who take turns working on ships while the other stays home. One of the pair is in something of a running battle with another Australian member
and delights in winding him up.
, of course, is convinced that the two are, in fact, one person with a split personality and two accounts, and wants them (him? her?) banned from the Forum. In spite of our exhaustive research
to prove to our satisfaction that that is not true, he refuses to believe it.
When a single
individual does have more than one account, we delete the secondary account(s) and assign all posts to the single surviving account, giving the person his / her choice in deciding which account survives.
You can see the potential embarrassment that a member may feel when posts that he / she would prefer weren't associated with him / her are consolidated under a single account.
It's something members might want to thing about before registering a second (or more) account.
