I thought jhow might be on to something, so I started poking around behind the scenes.
A short aside: we don’t require commenters to register here at Wizbang. It’s Kevin’s decision, but it’s one I wholeheartedly support. One of the drawbacks, though, is that it is very easy to abuse that system and engage in “sock-puppetry” — using multiple names to support one’s positions to convey more support than is actually present. It’s a hot-button issue with me.
Anyhoo, I did some checking, and “Larry” had never posted from “Lee’s” IP — and neither had “Lee” ever posted from any other IP. Case closed.
Whoops, let’s not close that case just yet.
“Larry” is a bit more prolific than it seems. In that thread, his IP posted as “Larry.” On this thread yesterday, that IP posted as “Hugh.” He was also “Hugh” on this thread and this one, where he was also “Michael.” He was a bit less formal here, when he was “Mike.”
I’m not going to ban his IP, because I really, really don’t like doing that. But I am going to publicly ask him to just pick a single name and stick with it.
And before anyone else can beat me to it…
BLOOD FOR ODIN!!!!!!!
