Helluva nice birthday present. Got this email today:
I wanted to discuss an issue we have with your DraftStreet Account. You currently have 2 accounts at the same IP address, one of which clearly recruited the other, and only one which plays in leagues. We have made the determination that these accounts belong to the same person, and this violates both our One Account Per User policy as well as our Self Recruiting policy. I will be closing your account under Maggie Sullivan, and would ask that you not create any other aliases in the future. I appreciate your cooperation and understanding in this matter, and wish you the best of luck in DraftStreet leagues moving forward.
Don't hesitate to contact me should you feel we have made in error in our determination.

Now, I did ask my sister to sign up for Draftstreet with the sole purpose of recruiting me. To my knowledge AT THE TIME we both signed up this was not a violation of any terms. Who knows, maybe the terms have changed. We also have not shared an IP address. In fact, we live hundreds of miles apart.
Here's my retort to DS:
I have no problem with you closing my sister's account, but these accounts have never showed up on the same IP address. We live hundreds of miles apart from each other. It is a false accusation you are making.
I asked her to sign up so she could recruit me, as I am a high volume fantasy player. I have similar deals with most of the contest sites, as I actively play and recruit other players, and I am even staking new players.
Without any commission I lose incentive to play on DS or any contest site for that matter.
I have NEVER violated the one account per user policy, but if I have violated some other terms than I certainly understand the actions you are taking.
Best of luck to you in your endeavors,
So what do you think? Am I wrong here? Losing out on the commissions is not a big deal to me, the bigger deal is being accused of multi-accounting when I certainly did not.
I guess I'll stick to playing elsewhere.
