Multiple Registrations Not Allowed
Each registered user must have a unique email address (DLP users cannot share an email address) and a user may only register with DLP one time. When a user registers with a site more than once, it is typically an attempt to present themselves to the registration system as a new user to take advantage of trial offers or to circumvent being banned by the site administrator.
