Were they the same person?

Or, at least, did they have the same IP?

I'm pretty sure that this was eventually answered with a "no" at the time.

People can use comps a other locations too. So IP would not totally rule it out.

No. Drakel was a little kid and EraserHead was some perverted young adult.

Although, if my memory serves me well, he spelt testicle 'testacle'. I think.

They most likely are not the same person.

They also had very different styles of trolling.

Were they other members just trying to be funny, or were they actually people who coincidentally registered near the same time?

I think that when you are banned, your account and your IP are banned. That means that you can't log onto that account and you can log onto any account on that computer. If they were other members, that member would of been caught out and dealt with (most likely banned).

So my guess is they were two different idiots.

No. Accounts are simply banned, without the IP - a banned member can make a new account from the same computer without difficulty. It is only in very severe circumstances (ie someone will keep making new accounts and posting crap) that an IP will be banned. I've never seen an IP ban in my time here, I think. But then, that doesn't get announced usually.

Usually only your account is banned the first time, and your IP is banned if you try to evade the ban.

They did indeed register within a short time of each other. Whether their synchronous registrations were "coincidental" is another matter; EH claimed to have registered purely for the purpose of mocking Drakel.

Yea, I remember that. That Drakel guy did really irritate me though. Erasorhead had a couple of funny moments but ended up just being a pain.

The last IP ban I even remember was several months ago, at the time of the PPP2, where Djur was IP banned for an hour or so, for making too many requests on the server, too quickly. In that case, site-sucking. He just sucked too well, I guess...

Then again, if you're going to go conspiracy theories, I came back about the time that those two popped up and my IP address is as good as made-up.

There are plenty of IP bans issued. Just because we don't come out and say it doesn't mean it doesn't happen - they do happen a lot. About half of all initial bans are IP bans and account bans, and if someone with an account ban creates a new account, then they're IP banned too.

Drakel and Eraserhead were two separate people. One was a troll, and one wanted game cracks.

If i remember right,
Eraserhead had 2 posts where he spelled everything correctly, and 1 where he typed his words incorrectly. (WOW, you would think it would take at LEAST 5 posts to get banned...)
Drakel's posts never featured correct spelling on any word, and they were filled with grammatical innacuracies. (I wonder what he gets in english class....)

Way back at the beginning of the Spidweb UBB, Masta Assissan was banned after only one post, because he posted hentai. Pornography constitutes an immediate ban, regardless of post count.

Well,,,,
I was taking about being banned for use of abusive/trollish vocabulary and making an excessive number of meaningless topics.

Actually, I believe Eraserhead posted Tubgirl and Goatse. He was banned for both trolling and pornography.

when we are all talking about banning. TM was finally banned. Can we have a public report of what he did to deserve it (I know he was rather unpleasant but that is not a good enough explaination.)?

So, as the great Groxy, I have come back to be served by goblins. In the "main hall" of the goblin cave was a large totem which resembled very much of... me.

TM's recent spamming-up of RWG was apparently a contributing factor.

Don't worry; he'll be back in a few weeks.

It was mostly persistent obscenities and spamming after persistent warnings. This is a 10-day ban if he adheres to it.
