I've sent an email to the registered email on the anon account; please reply to that, or let me know if you're unable to.
ps --- on merge requests, please link directly to the relevant accounts, so moderators don't have to search for them.
Peter May has three distinct unregistered accounts, which can be found by entering "Peter May" into the user search.
I've found these accounts, which I assume are the same person (it is the same gravatar at any rate, I don't know whether that actually implies anything):
They are all unregistered. Perhaps it is a person in protest of the reputation system? At any rate they might be contacted and asked if this is intentional, and if not, encouraged to register and have their accounts merged.
@Zev, I've contacted the owner.
@Zev, and similarly for your Feb 5th post above.
I only see one (unregistered) account with name "Peter May", so perhaps a moderator has already silently merged these.
Here is another batch of unregistered accounts that are presumably the same person:
Again, I'm not sure whether this is intentional.
This "none" user provided a dummy email address, so there's no way to contact them. I'm happy to just go ahead and merge (I can tell they are the same person), but thought I should check first---does anyone think it's a bad thing to merge anonymous uncontactable duplicates?
What reason is there to merge these accounts? If somebody doesn't want to maintain a coherent identity, I don't want to force them to unless there's some rationale. We wouldn't be so keen on merging these accounts if this person had bothered to make up different names for them. Since these accounts are unregistered, I know with certainty that there isn't any puppetry going on. Has this person been causing some other kind of trouble?
@Andres: Like requiring real names, requiring real email addresses just isn't practical. "Real" dummy email addresses are about as easy to create as dummy "real names." What possible benefit would there be to such a requirement?
I suppose it's partly a organizational urge on my part, but also the fact that they did use the same name for all of their accounts seems to me to indicate the possibility that they do want to maintain a coherent identity, but have not figured out how to. If it were someone attempting to be anonymous, they would make up different names, and I agree, in that case they shouldn't be merged (nor would I have been able to find any connection between their accounts to begin with). On the other hand, perhaps they want to maintain their identity via the name "none", but want to avoid gaining reputation.
Also, "none" hasn't been causing any trouble - in fact they seem to be contributing quite well.
I've just merged Peter May again. It's not so satisfactory merging unregistered users. Perhaps someone who knows him, or sees him in person, could suggest registering!
Peter May again. Why not just email him directly?
There are several "YCho"s that I suspect are the same individual.
@jc, it appears these have been merged. @Moderators -- when you merge according to a request here, could you reply to say you did, so as to avoid other moderators looking again?
Sorry, that was me. I merged the "YCho"s and lost internet connectivity before being able to post here.
+50 for Will for «Kaplansky saves»!
@sean: done. I'm afraid you lost 28 points in the score recalculation, presumably due to deleted material.
@dan, all four are unregistered; I sent Jason an email telling him I can merge them if he'd like.
It looks like someone is doing this right now! I just tried to merge two of his accounts, only to find one had disappeared out from underneath me! :-)
I've merged the Peter Mays.
whoa, that was weird
@sean: I happened to check meta right after you posted, so I went to go merge the users. As I posted my comment, it had only been about 30 seconds since I finished merging. After I submitted my comment, I saw your "jesus you guys are fast" comment, and I thought, "whoa, sean tilson is fast."
Then I realized that you were responding to Scott's post, but that only compounded the weirdity.
not sure if I can merge those. There's no overlap between the user info, beyond the name "Rajesh D". I'm not convinced that emailing him to ask is worth the effort, either.
@Andres, indeed. Merged.
