Should others be allowed to post a question with a screen name under crazy for credits just to let their "friend" answer for credits?

So a certain member likes to post the same question 20 times in Crazy for Credits, with her "friends" name in the title to give her tons of vote ups for points. Doesn't this defeat the purpose of being encouraged to give good, constructive answers for credits?? Opinions please.

  • I use to do this when the crazy for credits started but I haven't done it in months.
    If that's the only way they want credits let them. They are just points and mean nothing.

  • Oh look, it's Ericaca again! Staaaaaalker!

    mommy of two, I think this person doing it has mulitple profiles and is doing it to be malicious and decieving. To up her level to make it look like she's been here longer.

  • I think the crazy for credits section defeats the whole purpose of the points system. The point was to curb trolling by making it difficult to get the anon button, but since you can go spend a night or two in the C4C section and get enough points to get the anon privilege, it doesn't work.

  • CM credits don't add up to diddly.
    No big deal, it's all worthless crap.

  • i agree jewjewbee, it is worthless. They just find a way to manipulate it for something else. But it sure is easy to tell a fake profile sometimes!
