Ummm, this may be considered tinfoil....
...but I seem to see a lot of new members with handles that have three capital letters embedded in them that defy randomness. For example (not real):

TriBecaNom
MakesPukeBar
PunkAirPoobah

and so on.

Eh, welcome aboard anyway.

Whoops! For some reason I always assumed my name was HappyHippyChick but I see that I am wrong, I'm all lowercase.

5. I haven't noticed that. Many trolls do certain things so they can recognize each other
It used to be posting in plain text like this. Since everyone
caught on to that they have moved on to other things. The
latest trend I've noticed is they put 2 numbers at the end of
their usernames like "asshat21" or similar things.
Obviously there are plenty of legitimate DUers with numbers
in their names as well.

11. spambots
They're getting better, and are now programmed to 'click the link' in their email accounts. I've seen this on the forums I run, as well.
