Of course not. It would be crazy to screen us based on something as
non-unique as an IP-address.
What they use are little, tiny machines, called nano-robots (surely you've
heard of them). They can travel the speed of light and they know how to
follow the trail of the bits sent over the net. Now, as they reach your
computer they bounce out of it, takes a picture and goes all the way
back to the server where the pic is downloaded to the harddrive (which is
why you might want to reconsider sitting naked by the computer
entertained by your right hand).
Once the pic is downloaded to the server harddrive, a very sophisticated
face recognition program is executed to compare the pic with all the
other user's pics (this is when the server slows down so you can hardly
get the games to load). If a match is made they know they've got a
multiple accounts abuser, and off you go.
I hope this post clarified things for you.
