What's the point in making a duplicate account? I don't get it...

Trying to circumvent forum security by pretending you're a different person.

RDF works VERY hard to keep its users protected.
But what's his gain in that? Do you mean that he was advertising and pretending that people liked his product or something?

Most of the time there are no gains. Trolls like to play games and are simply a**holes just to be a**holes. They have their laugh, and when they get banned or whatever, they move on to their next attempt at trying to cause a headache.

Cirmcum liking your own comments?! There was a user on Reddit who had amazing wealth of information regarding biology and the animal kingdom. His name was Unidan, he got famous for his knowledge and his posts were getting many likes and he got a lot of gold. His game got to his head. The way Reddit works is that the number of likes you get during the first hour of forum post creation, the more likely you are to hit the front page etc etc. So in order to get the max number of likes he decided to create like 10 accounts and used them to like his main account content. He got caught and all accounts were banned. It was a great loss to community because he was quite knowledgeable.

However, unlike rdf; the major Reddit accounts can actually be sold on a black market and those sold accounts can then be used to press an agenda.

So he made click/karma bait. Sounds like no real loss.

It's just an example that fame can get to your head.
