As far as I know, there's no actual rule against having fifteen different identities (or for that matter, a hundred, as seems likely if this keeps up at this rate for a few more weeks), and no actual rule against asking questions and then systematically ignoring responses, but I still find it troubling in ways that might or might not be entirely rational on my part. Do others share my discomfort? <hr> Edit (YCor June 3, 2019): since the question was posted, here are a number of similar posts: [user138661](https://mathoverflow.net/questions/330690/grothendieck-topology-on-a-scheme-equivalent-to-the-circle) (account closed since then: not the original post name)<br> [m_for_motive](https://mathoverflow.net/questions/330766/proper-variety-containing-no-affine-open-with-irreducible-complement)<br> [drama_dorama](https://mathoverflow.net/questions/331666/the-underlying-space-of-an-affine-open-dense-subscheme)<br> [gentleman_gaga](https://mathoverflow.net/questions/331914/does-the-structure-morphism-matter-in-gaga)<br> [motive_for_m](https://mathoverflow.net/questions/332103/a-different-sort-of-affinization)<br> [livehard](https://mathoverflow.net/questions/332120/equipotent-non-homeomorphic-schemes)<br> [user141225](https://mathoverflow.net/questions/332839/checking-universal-closedness-on-immersions)<br> [PDShoot](https://mathoverflow.net/questions/332949/scheme-locally-of-finite-type-over-the-affinization)<br> [Gimme An Answer](https://mathoverflow.net/questions/332951/the-ring-of-global-sections-of-a-regular-scheme)<br> [La fille](https://mathoverflow.net/questions/332969/non-empty-affine-open-with-an-irreducible-complement)<br> [Name](https://mathoverflow.net/questions/333039/strongly-abnormal-schemes)<br> [Name](https://mathoverflow.net/questions/333008/quasi-compact-morphisms-satisfying-the-valuative-criterion-of-properness) (not the same as previous one)<br> (there are a few more, for which the similarity is less obvious).

Please note that these accounts have a tendency to comment on, edit, and answer each other's questions, or plan on offering each other bounties. The evidence I see points to one human in particular behind all this, and the situation is similar to that of another user and his ring of accounts a few years ago that some of you may recall, and who is now permanently banned from SE. https://mathoverflow.net/users/141417/etalien <br> https://mathoverflow.net/users/141410/topo-mopo <br> https://mathoverflow.net/users/141546/naraka-path <br> https://mathoverflow.net/users/141523/preta-path <br> https://mathoverflow.net/users/141501/animal-path <br> https://mathoverflow.net/users/141500/human-path <br> https://mathoverflow.net/users/141498/asura-path <br> https://mathoverflow.net/users/141474/deva-path <br> https://mathoverflow.net/users/140692/drama-dorama <br> https://mathoverflow.net/users/141703/curious-girl <br> https://mathoverflow.net/users/141716/phd <br>
