    A simple logging program could be incorporated into the site engine that could display how many I.P addresses are common to the site users.

    This would put the brakes on multi nicks talking to themselves.

    People do make financial descisions based on info that is spuiked over the web boards, we need to stop the multi nicks plugging various stocks that hold no investment merits except for a pump and dump.

    A few threads have popped up lately with old nicks that have been coached out of retirement, these are so bloody obvious that they are pump and dumps.

    Pat, I would make it a priority for some I.P identification to be leveraged off a username as a number one priority.

    Now I wait for the multi Nicks to flame me..
