For all intents and purposes, the imposter could be diplomaniac or even a non-ladder player.

This is getting old.  If you don't know how to host a game without imposters, then don't host them.

Let me spell out the EASY ways to find out if all players are who they say they are:

1.  Play passworded games.  This requires the player who is trying to IP into your game to know your game password in addition to your IP.

2.  Ask all players to log in to the league site and then click the little menu item "Who's Logged On."  It's so simple.  Make sure your gamespy password and your league site password are completely different!

3.  Don't be in Hamachi unless you need to be.  People can easily view your hamachi IP there.

4.  Be aware of TS servers.  Use the league server to insure that the host of the TS server you are on is not identifying your IP and password.

5.  Change your in-game font to something that is easier to differentiate between 1 and l -- or any other such similar alphanumerics.

Use this thread for it's original intent -- to list impostered players so you can be aware and take extra precautions.

All other posts will be deleted.

They know why Bantams.  As for Linde, I wasn't admin at the time and don't know the story.

This is getting old.  If you don't know how to host a game without imposters, then don't host them.

As in the latest case, imposters show up in games even after they show up on your buddy list. I don't believe countering imposters is a host issue. This latest case is proof.

You are probably right, but I do believe having a unique game password and checking the "Who's logged on" list is fool-proof.

What if he dies to a single chariot?  That's the real Penny, not an imposter, right?
