    Revolutionary! I even can rename myself! Or hide my personal information like passwords credit card number, all I need is just a ... tape.

    Well, I talked it over with the rest of the mod team - but it's pretty
    clear to me that the intention is that it be easy to identify individual
    users.

    So let's just go with that as the reason - please don't make my job more
    difficult, or give NNTP users a bad rap by changing identities/names. :-)

    that may have been the intention, but it is certainly not stated..

    anyway, it is apparent to me that the intention is exactly as stated:
    "Members may not create or use secondary accounts...", and since i've
    not created a secondary account none of the other words in that
    section applies..

    how might a person who is not breaking any T&C while using more than
    one IP, or more than one handle, or more than one spam-free email
    address make your (or any mod's) job more difficult?

    i've come back to this now after starting my second cup of morning
    coffee, and with reflection i feel the need to add a few thoughts:

    it is not my intention to:

    - put up a personal affront to our newest moderator (whose selection
    and addition i openly welcome and applaud)

    - make any mod's job (or member's experience) here more difficult..

    - challenge the authority here, nor its rightful ability to control
    the (potential) mob..

    - attempt to hide my identity in order to violate any of the T&Cs,
    including all of those in the legal document's Rules of Conduct

    - attempt to hide the actual posting IP or serving ISP's unique
    message/user ID numbers which remain traceable directly to this
    machine's connection..

    those, and others might cause one to ask:
    Then what _are_ your intentions?

    i intend to:

    - be helpful to open source software in general, Linux in particular
    and (currently) openSUSE exclusively..

    - "pay back" to those who helped me become reasonably comfortable in
    using Linux by helping, supporting, training, guiding, encouraging and
    etc those that follow to grow in knowledge, capability, and self
    reliance..

    - set an example of helpfulness which might 'rub off' on a few who
    will want to help those who come even later..

    - do those three things to the best of my ability without payment of
    any kind, including but not limited to: cash, barter, 'pay-back',
    esteem, or praise..

    which might then prompt one more question: Why do you change sigs?

    simple: i neither need nor want recognition/praise/esteem in terms of
    community/forum titles, ranks, post counts, reputation points or
    geckos/etc lined up next to my account ID..

    And I thank you for your clarification here, and appreciate that you
    don't want to make my job harder. :-)

    In the words taken from the classical dumb blonde "I correct what I write with white-out and correct what others write with felt marker, but I hate this d** screen cause as I add lines or read further comments the white-out and / or felt marking keeps moving over the wrong words! My boss has taken to looking at me funny".

    too bad it doesn't work that way in real life eh!

    I Confess! I did not read the T&C's and set up two different accounts. One was for posting from windows XP and the other from openSuse. I have not used my other account for a very long time.......
