First up: An awesome site. Thanks. Now to my question.

I would assume that 'sockpuppeting' is detected thru IP address. I log in from work, and I am encouraging another user to register and play. If you detect multiple accounts thru the IP address, wouldn't one or both of us be labelled a 'cheater'?

You mean "using another identity"?

Look, as long as *you* aren't creating multiple accounts, it's fine; you're allowed one account.

You can encourage your friends to create an account as you please.

But don't cheat together! The 'cheater' labels are only assigned if you cheat. Regular rules apply.
