Weve seen them before, arguments by two sides that are strikingly similar in style, grammar errors, and idiocy. How do you judge one of these debates when its clear that both sides are controlled by the same person?

If you think there is a debate that is being argued by multi accounters, post it in this thread and then vote on the debate using this as your RFD,

"This vote brought to you by the DDO'ians Against Multi-Accounting Alliance (DDOAMAA) whose goal is to warn others to not vote for any side in a debate on the grounds that both sides are controlled by the same person"

Here is an example of when to vote like this,

Together we can feel like we might be dong something that might make DDO a better place

I would just report the debaters
"The solution [for Republicans] is to admit that Bush was a bad president, stop this racist homophobic stuff, stop trying to give most of the tax cuts to the rich, propose a real alternative to Obamacare that actually works, and propose smart free market solutions to our economic problems." - Distraff

"Americans are better off in a dynamic, free-enterprise-based economy that fosters economic growth, opportunity and upward mobility." - Paul Ryan

This is a bad thread that can be misused or lead to paranoid posts or unfounded attacks on non multiaccounting members...
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!
- Ecclesiastes 2:14-16

Shouldn't that first debate you gave a link for be voted on so it's a tie? That way the debater that's using more than one account for her own gain won't get a win out of it...

If they post the links on here and it can be argued that they are not multi accounters than no damage would be done

This group is only to alert members of cases of multiaccounted debates, not to do some kind of vigilante justice. This group is completely harmless since we dont give out any points...

This does seem like vigilante justice from my end. It would be better to report the debates, then message innomen about it (or the appropriate user).
Give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day. Teach him how to be Gay, he'll positively influence the GDP.

Askbob is back - in the form of imabench. Lol, just kidding. But seriously though, reporting to Juggle seems better than the votes because we don't really know for sure if they are multi-accounts.
