I just want to see how the question can be edited and if I can answer it by myself. If the question is older than one day, then I will accept any answer only to remove the question. Otherwise, I will reject all.

WAS EDITED NOW (so it is possible)

This is a kind of test, ignore it or comment it.

OK, editing works. Before I touched it (possibly anybody) I could also remove it. Now I can only edit it, and I probably cannot remove it. Maybe I could if I created a false, second acount as another expert. I hope I cannot do this because I could evaluate myself in that case -- and I do not want to try.

Well, I tried to play with a question. Now anybody can answer it and it will be accepted. But only the clever answers or of the kind that give me more information will receive the quality.

Hi there,

I don't think it is difficult to 'cheat'. As anyone can always connect form another location it is almost impossible to check whether anyone has double accounts. Getting multiple internet accounts is no problem. There even are several (finnish) services that supply anonymous accounts!

Allthough this security-nut woudn't be very hard to crack, one should think of the consequences. If everyone just played around with the points there would be little useful information so the need to visit the pages would decrease. Showing off knowledge is no fun if nobody is looking!

To end these philosophies of true internet lover I would like to express my respect for these kind of services. This is the way internet should be, without brainless users who are there just to spam the place.

Kind regards

Nice way of testing these services anyway...

Hi thrain,

Only to explain, I did the test because another person asked if it is possible (for 0 points, but I also wanted to know -- I never tried before ;-). The idea of cheating came to my mind in the time when I typed the question. I am not interested in doing this. It was just a flash in my mind.
   One can surely create multiple accouts, but it is more difficult to maintain many mailboxes... Anyway, some people may try this (some people always do things which should not be done), but it is too much work and too small profit to do this.
   I liked your answer, enjoy the point :-)
