A New Rule? (in General)
Can't we just make it simple, if two IPs transfer something to one another it's against the rules. Not saying they are multis (though in likehood they are) but just dont do that.
sorry that should say any two identical IPs

So why not simply ban all AOL users from playing?

Excellent bart, great idea!

So two people behind a firewall can never transfer goods? Brothers. sisters, spouses -- all out? I doubt a husband/wife combination will appreciate having to buy two DSL lines for their home just to be able to transfer items.
Is this what you are suggesting?

All those people playing at the same school/college etc would love it too. And what about referring your friends/flatmates - you wouldn't be able to do any deals between each other. No helping out noobs that you know with a basic weapon/armour set or anything like that. Nice idea....
Heh, the aol situation was what I was pointing out in the "attack Goju Jim and Holly" thread that was, appropriately, closed by Chuckles. A ban on aol users would have been a logical outcome of a one user per ip policy.
but the AOL idea would put down tons of people

I think that stinks. I have friends that I work with that play. While we are at work we get in and fight and we are usually on the same IP depending on which IP the Router assigns us. One day it may be different the next day it may be the same. You may not have a chance to be behind a firewall and still play only from one IP, the rest of us who play from different IPs are not (despite contrary belief) multis.
