    IMO and it is just my opinion, this is not cool.

    If the IP address corresponds to a member, that member deserves to be banned. No sense of humor here with identity fraud and sock puppets.

    How do you know this?
    I am not doubting you, I read (but don't post on) the indy star board alot,and, I have to say, when I saw IU's glosting posts over here, they didn't really seem to fit with what he says and does over there. But then again, he is a colts fan :)
    But if someone is using his name, that guy should be banned. Anyone who reads the two boards, and there are alot of us, should know, its not right to steal someone's name.

    Miguel-

    I am assuming the user name was available and used in this forum rather than unavailable and hacked, which would seem to have an easy answer.

    If those in other forums have been receptive to comments from folks here, I would suggest sending them an invitation and locking the user name in the database. It does not create any restrictions on dialogue in the forum here to limit access to names - simply pick a different name and talk freely.

    That should not pose a huge obstacle as I suspect those visiting other team forums have more bad experiences than good so the good list would be fairly short. Just a suggestion. It does not really constitute a policy shift, it just requires some effort in creating a user name list with default passwords.

    By the way, great work on your salary cap site. Very impressive!

    Not only is it not cool, it's butt-stupid.

    Butt-stupid transcends plain-stupid by one leap year. You have to leap from stupid to get to butt-stupid. You have to have a certain desperation mixed with a particularly low IQ to make that leap. You know, sort of like a politician?
