Sponsor Shills Should Be Marked

    A great feature would be to have all Sponsors who create aliases to help hype their product have the shill also be identified as 'sponsors'.

    For example, Timmay has created GregShap01 and mike4242 who have registered recently and post only long supportive messages in the exact voice, grammar and syntax as Timmay.

    If you do not want to mark them as sponsor shills, then at least help them to be less obvious.

    On the other hand you could charge sponsors an additional 'sock puppet fee' based on the number of sock puppets they create.

    Thank you for listening...

    Just a suggestion. Love the site!
  2. Slacker,
    That is a very good suggestion. In the meantime, we need to speak up and identify these mutant "TimmayDrones" whenever they appear.
  3. they should have to wear a large red "A" on their shirts...

    Actually, I don't think it's appropriate for sponsors or anybody else, to set up shill accounts in the first place. If you suspect that a sponsor is doing this, please PM me the sponsor username and the shill username(s) so I can deal with the problem.

    Thanks for the feedback.
