When we have the same conversation over and over...year after year.
It isn't a war of attrition, where he gets to break my will down. Calling these people who come here to share, sell, give...I don't care how they phrase it, liars and crooks and snake oil salesmen..etc Goes way past opinion. Right on into rule breaking. How many warnings were given? Many, I assure you.
As to alias part..I have tools that I use to check these things. sometimes they work, sometimes they don't.
While there are people who are certainly back on AZB having snuck back in...they will eventually revert to form and once discovered..be banned again. If someone becomes a big enough PITA an email to their service provider can ( and will ) bring that to a halt.
If someone ( on rare, very rare ) occasion gets Mike to overturn my decision to ban them..it is a reprieve.
What is it they have to offer the board that out weighs the negative aspects of their presence?
PJ isn't dumb and my stance toward him isn't personal. This is the sole reason that he has been allowed to return in the past and that his ban wasn't permanent this time.
I don't believe he's disingenuous in that he'd prefer to sneak at all.
He want's people to know what he thinks and to know it is his opinion.
That portion is honorable.
As for the guys who sneak back, if I catch them, they are banned. They are forced to remain anonymous. If they had / have any strong character, what fun is that for them? Like I said, they revert to form and are removed....again and again.
Just like fishing..will I catch them all? Some escape. Some don't take the bait. Some get wary of the fisherman and stay away.
Some......I even put back where others get fried.
