False / Phony / Bogus User Names!
I am really puzzled why someone would go to the trouble of setting up another account on this site, with a false / phony /bogus user name.

Over the past 6-7 months we have seen quite a few on here, with a couple in recent times, namely "Gilb" & "Dewout". New users who register, dont really post pictures just abuse & be nasty.

What does setting up a phony / false / bogus user name achieve?

Well, all I can see the purpose of doing something like this is to create mischief & strife, nothing more, nothing less. Why hide behind something like this, if you have something to say, why not say it as your existing user name?

Is it "tough" or "cool" to be doing something like this or do these people think they are "smarter" than anyone else & wont get caught out?

This site is a great site, so why ruin all of the fantastic photos & productive discussions with childish nonsense like creating false user names?

Just something I think that has to be said, peer review it if you feel it necessary but it is VERY MUCH RELATED to THIS SITE.

Re: False / Phony / Bogus User Names!
i see your point there Craig. there is allso this turky guy with the extreme large pictures with something about football ore so. and just posting " * " in threat just for advertising. that annoyings me. i have no idee how Stu could stop this problem. you cant simpley throw them of the site now can you?
in my opinion the site hase changed a lot the last year . not only the site but allso the people how are on this site. some members around here just dont whant to talk english. that also annoys me a lot. but again. my english is'nt 100% but at least i try. once again, you cant just tell them to wright in english. but this is a internation farming forum right?

Re: False / Phony / Bogus User Names!
@fretos1981: yes, there is IP tracking. However IP tracking is not 100% fail proof. I am fairly liberal, but if I think the evidence unequivocally indicates that a user is responsible for bogus accounts for the purpose of harassment then their membership will be canceled. So far this has never happened (other than one member who voluntarily canceled their membership after being presented with evidence of their activities).

I continue to hope that members will regulate themselves.

Some quick agricultural wisdom for all of you who have issues with other site members: "Never wrestle with a pig ... ... you'll both get dirty, and only the pig will enjoy it"

With 8 responses of "blah, blah, blah" or similar, I would say sheep might be more the case (people who cant think for themselves & follow others) :-\ Even now you must try to be nasty Annes or whatever your name is :-\ maybe you should look in the mirror, you might find what you look for in regards to a 4 legged animal!

Probably highlights the point to me that people think it is perfectly fine to do something like this, esp when one sees where the majority of respondants originate from. This goes a long way to explaining the nasty behaviour of a certain few, esp towards other members.

Thanks for your comments Geoff, the only one (apart from Stu & Fretos) who could think for themselves & take the time to be serious about a very serious matter,

Regards,

Craig (TC) ;-)

PS; Has everyone noticed how the peer reviews have quietened down since the name of the person reviewing has been posted beside them? :-D

Thanks for the review DJ Moes. Nice to see that something so important as harrassing others is taken so lightly.
