Default What is the point of an alternate account?

I don't get why posters create multiple accounts.

It appears registration is reopened, but I don't think the majority is ACTUAL new members

Unless you've been banned or use it to entertain other posters with a quick gimmick what is the point? Are you trying to get banned?
Serious question. It just seems like they are pointlessly created for personal entertainment, which to me seems like a waste of time.

I used to want one but the procedure to get it seems to be not worthy.

Yep, and this makes it extremely lame. You dont know who is giving an opinion someone in real life actually holds, or if theyre just a fake account purposely arguing with you.


Thats why literally every poster whose pic I have not seen or who has a long standing history here but has not posted a pic for obvious reasons (kevinyc, niko, bagelred, droid, most other liberal losers who are probably extremely ugly).... I just assume all other accounts (save a handful i know are nick youngs) to be Josh. And most of them are.

Most of us spend enough time on here. Another account is too much. At least for me. I already post 5-10 times a day. That's enough.

Exactly. I don't have enough time to post on multiple accounts. Not to mention I don't understand what I'd get out of it.

Default Re: What is the point of an alternate account?

I just joined up. I am usually pretty active when I post on just one name. I always wondered the point of Alt names on forums. Usually they are there for arguing, but either way, as long as I am talking Basketball I honestly dont care who I am talking to.
