I belong to another board/forum where faking - pretending to be someone you are not and asking for advice, support, etc, based on that fake persona - is a bannable offense and taken very seriously. I was wondering how that sort of behavior is looked upon here.
For example, let's say I had a strong suspicion (or perhaps even some [circumstantial] evidence) that someone who posted here very regularly was asking for advice on a number of potentially/borderline hot-button issues and requesting support was not actually in the predicaments he/she has claimed and is not the person he/she is claiming to be. Would it matter to most people? Is it something that would necessarily be reported to a moderator? Or would it be a situation wherein one is expected to ignore it and mind one's own business?
I personally see it as trolling. I wondered what the rest of you thought about it.
