Just to note, that is permitted/allowed

And that was a huge part of the problem.

Second chances are good.

It's the tenth chance I view with some suspicion, and as part of the problem. And it is not as if it was difficult to find out who the repeat offenders were.

That's impossible to police.

Difficult, yes. Impossible? Only if you think it has to be perfect.

Without tangible results with rather little effort? Definitely not.

That's the problem

This is a photography forum, not some nanny off topic psychiatric center. DPReview should not have to moderate the dum place. But because there are so many empty headed trolls and whiners, the moderators had to waste their time.


If one posts from a mobile device, restarting it changes the IP address. If one posts from a static IP, a call to your provider will allow you to change addresses.

Since a whole bunch of them sometimes even forgot they were posting under a new login, referring back to old posts of theirs under a different login, do you really think they'd remember to take care of the IP address?

It doesn't need to be perfect.

Wait and see...
I hardly ever speak for anybody but myself. In the cases where I do mean to speak generally the statements are likely to be marked as such.
