1. Is there any way for WHO to check?

 

I would imagine it is pretty trivial for site admins to know if several user names are posting from the same IP address.

2. What do you mean?

Are you suggesting some here post under more than one screen name?

Or are you wanting to know the real name behind the screen name?

3. There should not be any.

MIRT watches out for socks, zombies, etc - only Admin through check of IP addresses can spot them.

6. Is that something that they watch for automatically or is it something they look

at after it was reported?

7. Both.

Sometimes MIRT reports suspicions, but often the admins check themselves.
