    Well behaved multis dispensations

    I notice that cricsim allows them...Can you have a multi if you disclose it in an email to the moderators along with a commitment to not troll with said multi.

    There could be very good reasons for having a multi - for instance you may wish to make a strong post about Tendulkar not wanting to bat at 3 when others are injured but feel you will ruin your reputation as a fair and balanced poster - here a multi would be ideal.
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    No, you can't.

    Hang on, your not a fair and balanced poster then, if your making a post that even yourself knows isn't fair and balanced (hence why you want to hide its you).... Your not protecting a reputation with a multi, your fabricating a false reputation instead.


    Only possible legit reason I can think off is ****-take accounts (Spanish Vicente anyone?), which whilst funny for the rest of us, probably **** the mods off no end.

    I think my potential post about Tendulkar would be fair and balanced - but the perception of it would be that I had something against the guy - given the general reception that anti tendulkar posts get. Plus if anyone insults my multi for making such a post I won't take it so personally.

    I think that many moderate members fear to step into certain territory as you are too worried about what others might think - and this stifles active and potentially insightful debate. Allowing benevolent multis would be an an answer to this.

    You could always get a mate or family member to sign up to Cricket Web and influence their views.

    Yeah, as PEWS has already said, no multis. If you want to make a post that is critical of Tendulkar, make it with your own account and deal with the counter-arguments. No hiding behind multiple accounts.

    Given you're proposing it as an alternative to having a multi, I think it's safe to say we're not going to take your word for it on the legitimacy of such an account...
