Aug 3 '19 at 22:43 comment added Todd Trimble Mod So far I don't think the last two meet the threshold.
Jul 15 '19 at 16:52 comment added Todd Trimble Mod @GetOffTheInternet One likely scenario is that the 'real' Aknazar, having been outed, claims that someone he knows has hacked his account and is maliciously using it to frame him. Then the same Aknazar creates this entity who has it in for him, thereby justifying the claim.
Jul 15 '19 at 12:04 comment added David Roberts @GetOffTheInternet seems like Lee Pak decided to delete their question...
Jul 15 '19 at 3:27 comment added David Roberts To update my last comment, someone contacted me who could corroborate the identity on the curious website with the sockpuppet accounts, since they recalled the original name of user Cardinal was indeed this person's name, and some other interactions with third parties who used the given name.
Jul 14 '19 at 20:58 comment added Yemon Choi @RobertFurber The current profile of math.stackexchange.com/users/684254/asura-path looks odd, in the sense of linking to the site mentioned by Xarles while using a username that is apparently associated with this individual
Jul 14 '19 at 2:22 comment added David Roberts @Xarles yes, it could be some kind of character assassination.
Jul 13 '19 at 15:21 comment added Xarles @RobertFurber That it was my guess: it seems that whoever is doing all these posts is trying to accuse another one and even to damage his image.
Jul 13 '19 at 12:18 comment added Robert Furber @Xarles Before that user was deleted, it was possible to see that that comment was posted by an alias of "Asura Path" (who had mysteriously acquired an association bonus without any posts), so we can't take what that site says at face value, since it seems to have been posted by the same person who is creating all these accounts.
Jul 13 '19 at 8:26 comment added Xarles In a comment to the question below an unregistered user (?) puts a link to a page where someone explicitly named is accused to be below all this attacks. I am not sure if it is not part of the "conspiracy"... mathoverflow.net/questions/335983/…
Jul 13 '19 at 0:48 comment added David Roberts @RobertFurber yes, and also on a bunch of other sites, making them look reasonably engaged.
Jul 12 '19 at 15:37 comment added Robert Furber mathoverflow.net/users/142965/gentbent appears to have acquired an association bonus by responding to trivial questions from augur.stackexchange.com/users/1822/maoboa on the Augur stackexchange, getting one upvote each time.
Jul 1 '19 at 5:13 comment added Martin Sleziak @ToddTrimble You are probably aware of it, but I will explicitly mention that the link you've included - mathoverflow.net/admin/posts-by-deleted-user/141498 - is not visible by regular (non-diamond) users. Regular users can get list of posts from a deleted users using SEDE, as discussed before on this meta, this does not include deleted posts. There are some stats about deleted users that might be interesting in connection with this, I have mentioned some of them in chat.
Jun 13 '19 at 18:10 comment added Alex M. I find it enormously funny that the now deleted account of user141498, which is one of the accounts involved in this scheme, joins the conversation and shares some common sense wisdom on the subject with us.
Jun 13 '19 at 8:00 comment added Emil Jeřábek @Wojowu This mystery is explained in the comment thread of meta.mathoverflow.net/questions/4261 . The SE software actively assists abusers by making it possible to hide communities from your profile.
Jun 12 '19 at 14:43 comment added Wojowu One of the users mentioned has recently posted a 100 rep bounty on a question and I'm confused as to how they've got the reputation for that. According to their profile it comes from the association bonus, but there are no signs of their activity on other SE sites either.
Jun 12 '19 at 10:37 comment added Todd Trimble Mod @StevenLandsburg Thanks for your support. Such an option is on the table.
Jun 11 '19 at 23:23 comment added Steven Landsburg I want to publicly voice my support for a policy of forcibly deleting these accounts as they arise, if the moderators find that action warranted.

added information on the circle of accounts
Jun 7 '19 at 18:57 comment added user141498 So I think the community management actually reviewed a case different from the one you are considering and the promised behaviour is cool.
Jun 7 '19 at 18:55 comment added user141498 after visiting your link to the meta stackexchange, I only see two potential issues here. First is the system adding 50 reputation points to any bounty automatically (thus you can generate rep from nothing, but posting a bounty and giving an answer from another account). Second you can use this to avoid the reputation cap of max 200 points per day. The first point appears to be moot at this moment (i.e. 50 points are no longer being added). The second point is potentially relevant but none of the "... Path" accounts are using the bounties to transfer the reputation to any other accounts.

added a link to a meta stackexchange post

added a quote from a user profile
Jun 6 '19 at 12:57 comment added Yemon Choi @ToddTrimble You should probably blockquote the profile text as it could change at any time (or the user might get deleted)

added another example of problematic behavior
Jun 5 '19 at 10:15 comment added Todd Trimble Mod @AsafKaragila It's a mix of registered and unregistered. Moreover, unregistered accounts can engage in shenanigans, as I explained in my answer.
Jun 5 '19 at 6:50 comment added Asaf Karagila Mod If I understand correctly, these are all unregistered accounts. These can't vote.

too wordy before
Jun 3 '19 at 22:56 comment added Yemon Choi Seconded. Thank you not just for acting, but for posting this answer to clarify for those who might not have seen the recent activity
Jun 3 '19 at 22:15 comment added Steven Landsburg Thank you for being on top of this.
