Okay, thanks for helping. On the other hand, this kind of thing is definitely not understandable. Even if something more statistically accurate can be designed, such as alias filters in addition to IP and network, and maybe I'm not entirely aware of how it is implemented. Nonetheless, the same kind of room-for-error exists, even if the methodology turns out to be more statistically sound.
But, I'll go ahead and let it go for now, since my standards of old-world thought process do not allow for the sound validation of a "ban evader." Even a hacker, where these standards are concerned. But, this worldview doesn't mean I hack.
It does mean, however, that the admin must be prepared to throw anybody under the bus just to make sure hackers are banned from the server. It's something like utilitarian ethics. You're choosing to risk getting it wrong just to make sure you get it right elsewhere. And somebody who didn't hack gets a ban...

Try hard not to forget how "hack bans" have been removed on BZ. First a hacker, then not a hacker according to "authoritative ruling." Since the propensity to get the wrong conclusion coherently and rightfully exists as of now in the worldviews of the server adminship, then it is not clear that I'm not welcome here. But this is more about your statement.
Lastly, it is my fault that I used two sniper accounts to overthrow the top 5 / top 10 sniper stats.
