The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
If it were up to me, I'd limit no. accounts that can be created in a short period of time from a single mac address. Also, some "cooldown" functionality can be implemented to post threads before some reputation threshold.
MAC addresses aren't unique, are easily spoofed, and aren't transferred to the internet - they stop at the router when the LAN / WiFi IP address is assigned.
IP addresses don't help either, since they are the point of contact with the internet rather than a specific computer. And easy to "recycle" - just reboot the router - unless they are static addresses, which most aren't.

I never understood why the consoles on the bridge in Star Trek explode when the ship takes some hits. Do they store their explosives in them or what? Anyway, why should I use VR devices that could explode in my face?
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
