I'm interested in how users feel about the following:
Is it acceptable for an individual to set-up more than one account to ask questions, provided those questions are legitimate and spark interesting responses?
It may be contended that there is little reason why someone would want to do so. But here I have in mind users who wish to ask a large number of questions in a short space of time (perhaps in the run up to exams for example) and thus will exceed the default question limits.
Admittedly I imagine this issue arises irregularly, and is probably rather difficult to spot in certain cases, but I think the situation is at the very least conceivable and therefore of interest.
My personal view is that - providing the individual's questions meet the standard expected by the community - there should be no issue in using more than one account to pose questions. I'm not sure if an official policy is in place on this point (and please point me in that the right direction if there is one), but in my short time using MSE, I sense that the spirit of the site is to reward interest above and beyond that which one would expect in the classroom. If an individual is generating enough engaging material to exceed the limit, it would seem counterintuitive to penalise them for bringing that enthusiasm to the site.
