7. It may stem from
some posters tombstoned who show up on other conservative sites to gloat about how they trolled, and to share their plans for re-registering under a different name.

There are some who believe that among all the anonymous posters there exist paid disruptors, who will return again and again under different handles.

I wouldn't worry about it. To be honest, the larger the site has grown, the less "underground" it has become, the more mainstream, and the more heated the exchanges.

Since the '08 election, beginning with primary season, the site (and perhaps, the party) has seen civil war between issues and party, left-leaning and traditional Ds and "centrists" and neoliberals, and more heat and conflict than I've seen in the previous almost 6 years.
