Rules about anonymity
2

In several recent threads, including some now deleted by administrators, tasad has made accusations about a current member using multiple IDs.

Given all but one of the IDs is deleted or inactive and have been for five years or more, I questioned what DPR rules were being broken by the one current account holder being accused.

I also asked what challenge rules were being breached, given the accusations are being made in the Challenges Discussion forum.

Towards the end of this thread, tasad said the DPR forums rule being breached was "anonymity". He also said the challenge rule being breached was "anonymity".

Unfortunately I couldn't discuss his position in that thread because LeeBic chose to sabotage the thread with empty replies to make sure it maxed out and discussion was blocked.

So, my questions are:

  1. What is the DPR rule that prevents someone operating an account anonymously, or that requires them to be anonymous?
  2. What is the general challenge rule (not just a principle, but a rule) that requires anonymity and prevents a person from voting if they happen to know or be related to another member?

If someone could point me to those rules - with links or copies of the rules, not just assertions that they exist - I would be grateful.
