Serious Internet Problem

There is a serious internet problem that somehow needs to get corrected.
I don't like the fact that you can create a new account somewhere that you already have an account with where all the information is exactaly
the same except for your email address.
You can have unlimited accounts setup at a website just as long as you use a new email address each time. I would appreciate any input anyone has regarding this problem.

So where is the "problem"?

In reply to: Serious Internet Problem

You can have unlimited aliases with your bank or power company or college or even the IRS as long as you can be contacted. Quite legal and proper, so "where is the beef" and how does this fall under the subject matter for the Spyware, viruses, & Security forum as it is not a component of any of the three?

Well, last year I got ripped off by a seller on EBAY. He then changed his account on EBAY so he looked like a different seller but he was still selling the same item I never received. I know it was the same person because when I asked a question about the item it suddenly disappeared from EBAY. I caught them doing this 3 more times before they finally stopped.
I understand what your saying but there should some ground rules at certain sites like EBAY or MYSPACE that prevent recreating a whole new account once they get in trouble for doing something with their old one.

(NT) You need to take this up with EBAY
