I don't think WIS has time to look at every player's IP addresses to see who is logging in with multiple IDs ... and then determine which players have multiple teams within the 1000 mile limit. I don't think they should read every site mail looking for collusion.
Also remember that some large companies use 1 external IP address and use non public IP subnets internally .. most homes with more than 1 machine do as well. It is very possible for several different people on different machines to have the same IP address that connects to WIS.
This should be done by users policing each other.
It does not need to be done in the forums, but if you know someone is cheating then you should tell WIS.
This goes for multiple teams, it goes for collusion/list sharing. If you have proof, tell WIS.
I don't have too many issue with Coaches Corner posts ... everyone can read those, so as long as it is not blatantly one coach saying you take PlayerA and I'll take PlayerB in the Coaches Corner, there should be some leeway there.
I personally think that 1 team per world is enough ... but the rule is 1000 miles right now ... and that rule (and all other rules) should be enforced on everyone.
im actually really hoping, and banking on their laziness, that they wont write a script (i dont have other teams in violation, but others do). but if you have a DB of customers (how can you not? but who knows, maybe they manage to find a way), its absolutely trivial to do a lookup on fields. IP isnt the best, but billing address and name would be a good start.
really i was more saying they should take a stand and communicate it CLEARLY, and be *willing* to enforce it all the way, than i was actually hoping they would do so in this case. actually, i really hope they dont do so, in this case. but for example, if they ever banned multiple teams, it would be total bullshit not to script in and enforce it though, it would be a crime to move anyone when its so obvious so many are in violation. to make a rule you cant reasonably enforce, and it can only stand up because you and most others make no effort to enforce it, is just wrong, IMO.
