Hi Gunter,

I am being accused of being a sock that is serial spamming a forum. The one accusing me is a self-admitted user of many different socks. I would like to prove once and for all that I'm not the spamming sock. I believe you can tell from IP addresses if a poster is using multiple socks. Is this the case? Is there any way I can prove that I'm not that spammer who is probably going to be booted for his activities. I asked the accuser to check with TOS Delphi whether I am that spammer or not, but he won't for obvious reasons. Namely, he's worried he will be busted as the trolling sock that he is. If you need to know the forum, I would rather PM to you than post it publicly.

Can't do that. Socks know how to change IPs at will.  It's best to ignore, or laugh at people, or say you are indeed ... so what?

No, it's okay and thanks for the response. I guess I just have to ignore people like that. Such a shame though. They make the Delphi experience so much less than it could be.

Don't let the jerks get to you - it's just a bully tactic.

Don't worry, I was accused of the same thing but gradually my accusers died or moved on to bothering other people.
