In response to pike's comment:
Trolling has nothing at all to do with multiple logins. Trolling occurs when a rival fan or a pretend Sox fan attempts to irritate a legitimate Red Sox fan. I could have 200 monikers and as long as I don't come here with the intent of pretending to be a Sox fan with false concerns or come here to annoy Sox fans by bashing their players, team, coaches, manager, GM, and owership, then I am not a troll. The definition of Internet trlling has been posted here many times and is available through an Internet search. Seabeachfred, Pumpsie, and Babe are trolls.
There are trolls in every forum - Planned parenthood, Gun control, Politics, and Religion. Trolls frequent those forums with the objective to inflame and annoy. Go over to the BDC Politics and watch them at work - especially Camelwalk ( he is really excellent at trolling). It is his intent and content that defines him as a troll - not his moniker. One moniker or 200 is irrelevant.
I use Adobe PhotoShop elements all of the time and have perfected over 5000 old slides on it. I could try putting the head of Richard Nixon onto someone that I know but never had that desire. Pinstripezac gets his kicks out of doing such things but then his motivation is to come to a rival forum and annoy Red Sox fans so he has a motive and a the initiative to waste his time and effort doing such childish things. Apparently you salute him for acting like a juvenile. Yes I could easily learn to do that but I have no desire to. Pinstripe does but then he is a troll.
Then why bother having multiple identities? Could it be some odd hobby or pastime? Could it be Sybil redux? Here's a possible answer: Early on, you've been banned many times because BDC thinks you're a troll, and you needed moniker backup. Afterwards, this multiple moniker creation mania took on a life of its own. At one point, you even had the gall to try to infinge on the privacy of others.
On the contrary, Zac has never been banned, at least as far as I know; what does that say about you?
