This user: http://stackoverflow.com/users/761669/errorerrorerror

Keeps making new accounts.

He/She just asked another question here: change source of calendar...How to do it with a button?
Using a new username.

I know it is the same user because they admitted on chat to making more than one account because they kept getting BANNED on Stack Overflow, also because the same @ErrorErrorError user has been on chat for a while asking about the building of his/her site.

Can this please be remedied?

Just curious - did the merge result in the user getting enough rep to downvote (125), subsequently causing the revenge downvoting? –  Rob Hruska Jul 13 '11 at 21:36

I can't confirm LiquidNitrogen yet, but the other five are definitely the same person. Merging now. Thanks for the heads-up.

i see all was merged but user80795, is there a reason for that? –  amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Jul 13 '11 at 18:37

I don't like to merge without ironclad proof of identity. Was trying to decide whether the circumstantial evidence was strong enough. By the way, there was another which you hadn't found; I thought you were looking at the same five socks I was elsewhere. –  mmyers Jul 13 '11 at 18:43

ahh ok. is there any way of reducing this user down to 1? he/she just said that they will still create more accounts now....chat.stackoverflow.com/transcript/message/1008002#1008002 –  amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Jul 13 '11 at 18:44

i like helping this user, i just dont like SO being abused as it is now. –  amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Jul 13 '11 at 18:45
    
what was the sixth one? (im sure there are even more than that.... they are hard to find and i dont have access to IP address data) –  amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Jul 13 '11 at 18:50
    
I don't remember. I got it from the email address. The IP is shared among quite a lot of people, so I can't just go by that. –  mmyers Jul 13 '11 at 18:52
    
mmyers -- ha, the user used the same email address throughout? wow. he wanted to get caught.... –  amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Jul 13 '11 at 18:52
