While I doubt that the trusted retailers on my good guys list do that( multiple identities) I can see why they may want to enter discussions on some topics without having an opinon reflect on thier buisness. This would apply particularly for the general discussion threads that might be political. So having a web identity of X bike company for technical discussions and another for ranting about politics would make sense.
There are a bunch of shill posts, often ranting about some shitty product, but who takes a poster with less than 10 comments seriously? Especially a guy who starts a thread, pukes out some swill and dissapears from the discussion.
Even the most uninformed noob catches on pretty quick to who to listen to here. When certain retailers start a thread, or make a comment here, I really perk up, read it several times, and learn a LOT.
