I'm *definitely* curious about all this drama though. Especially after realizing I knew one of these guys from Deviantart.
One reason for upping post count:
When you see a name with many posts (and a colored square) you usually wouldn't think to suspect that name as being a 'fake' account.
Hence, more posts mean more authentic? Perhaps? I would think if you were going to try and rig a derby that having many names, each with many posts, would seem less suspicious in case anyone tried checking up on it. Then you'd have extra votes *and* a name where you could pretend to be your own fan/defender.
Of course, this is all just speculation..
Ahh, but one would have to be quite foolish not to realize that the forum regulars would notice all the spam posts. No, if I were to make fake accounts, I would create a bunch and then let them sit and age. If I were to post with one or two, I would pass them off as lurkers, for the most part. Of course, I would keep most of them under wraps.
Hmm... given the incredible winning streak these last few weeks, I'd say it's a reasonable assumption that, if we are in the midst of some grand conspiracy, that it must have been quite some time in the making. Maybe even a year's planning has gone into this. I wouldn't be surprised if the fake accounts were created way back in December of 2007, posting with a "talky" account only once or twice a week.
Wait a second... the puzzle pieces are all coming together... it all makes sense now...
What's the best way to ensure you aren't viewed as part of a conspiracy? To propogate that conspiracy! Who would suspect "someone" of being a user's puppet account when that "person" is setting forth theories AGAINST said user? And look at your account info - signed up just over a year ago, and with that number of posts you average 1-2 posts a week. It all fits. Therefore, I call you out, "marzipanapple". But that's not your real name, is it? You're one of them, aren't you? AREN'T YOU?
Bwahaha, I've seen through your ruse! I've hit the bulls-eye, and now the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate!
And haishasan was the catalyst to cracking this case. Clearly haisha is a masked vigilante, intent on unleashing vengeance on the criminally-inclined. And like so many dashing heroes, haisha used unconventional methods to bring about justice before disappearing, true identity unknown.
