As a reminder, creating duplicate accounts is not permitted. While I admit some have been quite entertaining, it quickly turns into an epidemic, and everyone decides they need one (or ten) hobby accounts. Some just aren't all that funny. Some more problematic ones are created to troll specific people. Others still are created just to troll the trade forums.

We've been cleaning up a lot of the duplicate accounts that already existed over the past few weeks. We haven't handed out warnings or sent stern PMs about it, since we haven't really enforced this to any great extent in the past (short of a few other rounds of cleanup). At this point, for whatever reason, there has been an explosion in hobby accounts that has necessitated some additional action.

So, consider this fair warning: Continued creation or use of duplicate accounts will result in negative consequences.

For the record, Secret Santa will be the only exception.

To reiterate, this isn't a new rule or something that's changing about TalkBeer. It's been there since almost the very beginning. These hobby accounts have just really gotten crazy as of late, so it's time to be a little more srs about it before things get completely out of control.
