Swg5031 is a shit talking, double account having douche. Talking shit about another contestant (LefthandRubi), so he could win a stupid contest. Hell, the only reason he flipped over was because he was blowing his boyfriend in the passenger seat, took his eyes off the road. He was probably on his way to a Wayalife get together.

Can you disclose his other names? If not, understand.

Nothing strange going on with this. Two different people? Maybe, but it's not generally accepted that two different people pose as 4 different people.. Or are we up to 5 now with our "newest member" kc3amx?

I'll look into this a bit more when I get home tonight from working my paying job... sigh, and see what admin wants to do on this one. This is not typical and so for at least the time being I stand by my decision. If they want to reverse the ban for any reason then that will be up to them. What a cluster-fuck.

Which is why I said I'd look into it later tonight.

It still won't win you any votes in ROTM and that has nothing to do with this deal... It's because of the negative comments that you made in regards to a very respected and well-liked member. You kinda sealed your fate with that mess. Anyway... I do understand the proxy IP circumstances... just that it isn't something that normally happens on here and in this instance it made for a lot of confusion and contemplation. I'll have to deal with this when I get home tonight.

Y'all have a good day.

So, what you're saying is that you are in fact a different person who joined the site for the sole purpose of voting for your co-worker so he can win an interwebs contest. Well that just makes everything all unicorns and rainbows now doesn't it?

That would be a question for the guy who noticed that there are four different users originating on the same IP. Nobody you work with has internet at home? Sounds a lot like a load of horseshit to me.

Anyways, the fact that you are so defensive only adds to pegging the bullshit meter.

I'm not here to defend anyone, and I wasn't paying attention so I didn't see whatever prior drama occurred.

However, I would like to point out that it is entirely possible and reasonable that more than one real person could be accessing JKO and even signed-up for JKO from the same IP address. Most businesses and some ISP's route all individual users through a proxy to access the Internet. This is done both for security and performance. Hundreds or thousands (in my case, tens of thousands) of individual employees will share a proxy IP address whenever accessing the Internet from work, or from their work computer at home.

It is also reasonably possible that several coworkers enjoy the same recreational activity (Jeeps/Off-Roading) and are active on the same forums (JKO), and even talk to each other in person to form similar opinions. And these people might decide to all support a particular ROTM contestant, and might even all cast their votes while at work and, thereby, be logged under the same proxy ID.

I'm not saying that there isn't some element of conspiracy involved. But is a few buddies getting together at work to vote for each other (or to stand-up for each other in a disagreement) any worse than the guys who ask other members of their club or their relatives and friends to vote in their favor?

If there was douchebaggery involved then by all means take appropriate action. But before using a common IP address as prima facie evidence of fraud, you should at least do a lookup of the IP address to determine if it is a corporate proxy or an individual's home computer. In this case you would find the source IP's are, in fact, assigned to a large corporation.

I'm a JKO Reject

I digress, totally unlikely that several buddies work at the same place, using the same DHCP address, AND have no other way or time to, access this forum solely to vote for a ROTM where 100.00 gift card is the prize. Just all too coincidental and unusal. I have no dog in this race, I just think the level of defensiveness is going beyond trying to resolve a conflict. If he really was as innocent as he claims he is, why not PM Stub and admin with proof and let them make the call instead of making it public and in such a vehement manner?

Dildo fanny pack!

Ha ha, my apologies for my part in this thread becoming such a shit show. I do agree with the point anyone wanting to rig something like this with half a brain would likely disguise IP via a VPN service or similar,

That matter aside its still a pretty douchy way to violate the spirit of the contest by signing up just to vote then piss in other people's opinions. You sir are an arse! No matter what your identity or multiples thereof.

If you as you claim, are not SWG then a nice slow clap for fucking up your buddy's chances and dragging his name through the muck.

If you are all the same person, then that's pretty sad, and yes wayalife is likely your spiritual home.

You don't come out well either way so maybe you may just want to bow out disgracefully.

If not then hell, I'll just pull up a chair and a beer and enjoy the show. I think I've fed the troll enough now.

(There should be a troll of the month competition, winner gets a years membership of witopia IP hosting?)

Unspoilt by progress.

I know Tommy Guns pretty well and doubt he is involved. Hasn't been logged on here since April, and his same IP posted is linked to his account on my site. He does work for DuPont, which is where the IP address in question is registered to. I see swg is listed as from Delaware, guessing there is a chance he works there too.

Here's the main point, regardless if there's fake people voting, new people voting, green people voting, etc. -

swg5031's photo sucks and didn't get any other votes anyway. I mean it's a picture of a flop on a straight level road. It's not a photo of a stuck. It's a photo of stupid.

Ok here's the thing. Do you know of a thing called snow? Did you know that another thing called ice typically lies under snow? What happens when you add an external element like a slight horizontal incline and the direct downward force of the weight of the jeep? The laws of physics then guide us with the knowledge that with any added velocity, the near frictionless ice surface will cause the jeep to slide down the embankment causing a change in equilibrium causing the jeep to lie on it's side. Therefore, this was not a cause of stupidity, just unluckyness with Mother Nature.
