Is Multiple Account good for Steemit?....How about Faking Identities on other accounts?

Having multiple accounts seems like having different personalities...

Often times, there had been several arguments on whether having more than one account is healthy for Steemit or not. Both mild and fierce debates has always resulted in a stalemate ; there is no moral justification whether to have just one account or more is legit.

Some had claimed they have more than one account for business purposes, or for a project; either ways, this are very good and cogent Reasons. But what if everyone decides to open an additional account on steemit, will it yield more good or more bad for steem? Eventually, that is one of the hiccups of technology and what it brought along- Social Media.

While some have very solid causes for having more than one accounts, others have no beneficiary reasons to do so.

A case study is about some accounts posing tow opposite gender:

For over a week, i have been monitoring two accounts (Names withheld for now, till they clear the air about their mischief) here on steemit and this really had prompt me asking questions which none of these accounts had respond to as at the time of gathering this report. It is one thing to have another account, but i find it dubious to have an alternate one where a user poses as another sex!

To anyone who had notice such before now, we could all conclude beyond reasonable doubts that; a man posing as a woman, or a girl posing as boy clearly has some dark agenda and such a person should be dissociated from ASAP!

Let's just say this are wild guess, but here is the interesting part; one of this user i'm investigating keeps sending me links to upvote posts (As if my votes counts yet) but he or she finds it difficult to interact on both accounts, that is how him/her got bursted.

You post with different account, then share links to your post with another account......Who is kidding who?

There is an ultimatum on this shady account to debunk this allegations- rumors because the real evidence are still hiding under the bushel. So when the grace period elapse, then your name and that of your alternate account shall be revealed to all the Witnesses and Big Guns .

You are from my country, and before you ruined our reputation here on steemit; you gonna get screwed over and over again!

??????.....did you read the content or just the Topic?


I read it all, I was saying that I have only 1 account, sorry english is not my native language!


Oh, sorry mate.....

Normally people create 2 accounts to get that extra sp power and to also have a SP machine with delegated power (think trails), that is the only function I see to having more than one account.

A project might be another reason but it's uncommon


But you saw me mentioning a guy posing as a lady?or the other way round right?


Yeah, that is catfishing and it sucks, if you know some accounts that do that then just flag them


On the matter mate, still waiting for them to clear the air before airing their names....

Posing as multiple co-operating personalities as you're describing is called sock-puppeting. It's certainly not welcome, it is deceptive and dishonest.

I think it's ok to have separate accounts, even different online personas, as long as they are kept totally separate. They should not co-operate and create illusions of popularity or other deceptions.


GREAT!.....we still gave those guys more days to clarify before we make their names public....

well My first thought is that this is someone with a lot of time in his/her hands. Plus you can't come to these kinds of platforms and do cheap stuffs like this without people noticing .
How far can he/she really go with all of this...?
The end is near !


for me and some other guys to have noticed, he/she is bursted!

I think many people want to bloga anonimus ....


This guy or lady is posing as a lady......

See your post mentioned here

I can see a very good reason for having two accounts and am actually thinking of opening second one (haven't done so yet). I'd like to have one for posting regular stuff: cryptos, technology, news, steemit, environment, food etc. (as I do now). And then open one just for writing fiction, short stories, maybe some poetry. And would definitely keep it kind of mysterious about the author maybe even about the sex of the author, it adds an extra layer to the fiction. If that is the case with those two accounts I see no problem, however if there's some deceitful attempt behind I do not support that.
