Multiple IDs on IC

Balatarin

 

After the ownership/management change at Iranian.com (IC), which was accompanied with new face and added features to the site, some of the peculiar habits of few old-time members disappeared for a while, they’re back.

Due to the unbelievably oppressive social/political restriction imposed on Iranians in Iran by the Messianic Islamist Rapists, “reformers” and all (IRR), having a multiple personality during the past 34 years for Iranians has been a necessity, a survival tool. In public one has to try to keep IRR savage goons at bay and act freely in private.

That is not the case in the sane world and it certainly is not the case in the cyber world.

Except those whose livelihood requires of them to act with multiple IDs - New Year greetings to the hardworking NIAC Lobby cyber Basijies and their counter parts in Iran - there is no need for other site users to do so. Is there?

Guys!

I firmly believe that you are taking this cyber basiiji business far more seriously than you need to. Who on earth is going to be influenced, one way or the other by, Fred's, or indeed anybody's, daily rituals or by their detractors? I mean, come on guys we do all these purely for our self therapeutic reasons. The regime change will be effected by the people of Iran on the STREETS OF IRAN not by a bunch cyber junkies like iranian dot comers who largely read and write in a foreign language.
Come on boys get real. Don't spoil the fun.

Keep on trukin!

Thanks to @Mehrban for the recent reminder of the Mahatma's quote.

Interestingly enough, "Demo", the person with probably most user ID's, and certainly the most abusive ones on this site, was the person who graced you very timely blog first .

Oh God! I didn't mean to upset anyone, least of all my favourite presenters of twice-a-day show, Fred & Demo double act. I really enjoy their duet. Keep up the fun boys.

My guess is the Arabic articles and links we see from time to time on the main page of the new iranian.com are there because people with multiple IDs bump them there (by "toop"ing them with different IDs), whereas it could be one person doing that. Just a thought.

You're absolutely correct Fred. I have always advocated for a better control over multiple usernames, and with the new format, I brought the matter to @SaidAmin attention. Hopefully, something can be done. I tell you one thing, NIAC will probably be out of business on IDC if there is an end to multiple username postings here.

AO,
I'm not advocating for a better control, I am a firm believer in freedom and rule of the marketplace, ie, public opinion, in the long run, is the best control to separate chaff from the grain.
For me having multiple ID users on this site is a source of amusement, there are times when one sees the same person having a back and forth with him/herself using multiple IDs.
And of course the lovely cyber Basijies at NIAC Lobby and elsewhere need to make a living using this sort of tactics and one has to respect their need to work specially at these times of high unemployment.
My question is for others who needlessly do so, I’m curious to know why they do it.

Interesting, you have two of the most rabid neo-con I.COM mozdoors complaining about multiple user IDs and employment/unemployment. AO and Fred -- possibly the same person -- have spent years harassing people who don't tow the official line of their warmongering criminal masters at the American Enterprise Institute and the Middle East Forum. Now they complain about what they themselves have been doing best for so long.

I stand corrected Bozo. You're not Wahid Azal. He's much more intelligent than you. I gave you too much credit at the expense of that poor fellow. You're the muliple ID user / multiple times blocked offender Mola Nasredeen, Iraj Khan, who court records have pointed to be another possible username for Trita Parsi--now appearing as "Nasir Khosrow," the pote / scientist. No wonder you started showing up & stalking me and Fred when we posted a couple of blogs exposing Trita's cowardice, double talk and connections to the mass Iranian murdering Ayatollahs. You're making it too easy NIAC boy.

Do you think Parsi, the head of a large Iranian-American lobby and lecturer, has time to engage in the heated and opinionated online debate that Mr. Khosrow does? I mean personal rivalries on IC aside, let's talk about the divison of time and tasks per day. It doesn't seem feasible. Plus, if I were the president of a political organization I wouldn't leave a paper trail because things online can be traced back to people, regardless of their aliases on the net. It's not hard to do, many lay people can do it.

But back to the original question. Do you really think Parsi has the time to make multiple accounts and duke it out with people on the internet? Maybe his fans, but I'd assume someone with as much leverage as him would pull strings where they can have effect, not on a diaspora blog site frequented by homesick regulars.

Sha'er jan- The short answer is yes. By all accounts, Parsi is quite obsessed with IC and comments / post on the site. You don't have to take my word for it, just look at his most recent post, where he has been busy deleting the majority of the comments. Most public personalities who post on IC (such as Hassn Dai) either don't respond to comments, or they do not delete comments--which makes sense, since as public personalities (especially those who ask for money), they are accountable to the people. But not Parsi. He seems to be quite hands-on with posts on IDC.

Also, a report about his tragic lawsuit against Dai said that court discovery and documents showed that Parsi and NIAC operate several different usernames on IDC, including Iraj Khan, Karim S and Ramin J. --two of which are interestingly happen to be the first names and last initials of Karim Sajjadpour and Ramin Jahanbiglou (how perverse of them to do so). If you want more information about that aspect, you will need to contact Mr. Dai directly.

How do you know its Parsi and not one of his interns posting as him?

I guess anything is possible. But the information came from Parsi's deposition under oath. Like I said, you can ask Mr. dai for specifics. Unlike Parsi, he does not delete comments, and actually responds to them.

You Middle East Forum/American Enterprise Institute mouthpieces of I.com are more crazy and paranoid than ever. And who are you calling boy, boy? I bet I can kick your hide blindfolded in the real word, Fred/Anonymous Observer.

Dear @SaidAmin, can you please do something about this repeat offender / multiple times blocked individual's threats of violence? This is not the first, nor will it be the last time, that this person has conducted himself like this on IDC. He was blocked multiple times on the old IDC for this same type of behvior. I will refrain from further communication to him and will let you handle it. Thanks.

See, you are the cry baby and bully (i.e. comes from the spoiled brat privileged upbringing), yet you have the gall to call me "boy," boy.

Dear @SaidAmin, Anonymous Observer is a repeat offender himself and I speak with the consensus of a community of people when I say this guy is a creep and bully for the ages and was the reason why the old I.com lost so many subscribers.

Please muzzle this mut from time to time for the common good.

It's easy to see who is a multiple user. A site admin can see the IP address or MAC number of a user, other users may use software like TOR browser to change their IP's with each login; for those its harder.
