If my members have split personality disorder then it's polite not to disciminate against them Laugh | :laugh:

In all seriousness, though, the number of dupe accounts isn't super high. My figure of over 10M visitors last year is based on a system that aggressively recombines multiple user records into single records based on IP address and member ID.

While it's true a single member may visit from multiple IPs, they do not typically employ a ton of different email addresses with which to sign up, and logs show that our "send my password" page is heavily used, meaning there's a great deal of people recovering their accounts.

As you are aware there is also a bigger issue: Corporate firewalls. Single home users may have multiple IPs, but you can have thousands of users all appearing as if they are from a single IP.

All we can accurately say is that 7.5M unique email addresses have been used to sign up, and based on a combination of email address, IP address, and cookies, we saw 10M+ people wander through our messy halls last year.

The simplest measure of our membership is "lots".
