Mark Ingraham is a user who has been trolling Manifold for the past few weeks by posting intentionally controversial or confusing markets and comments. They've been "testing" the ability of Manifold to ban them, by creating a new account every time their old one is banned.
Accounts that appear to be Mark include:
Probably a few more too, let me know any I missed and I'll add them.
This resolves to YES if at the end of May I haven't seen any activity by any account that seems likely to be Mark within the past 2 weeks.
I am putting everything into my inflation bet on the may CPI with Chris. If that fails I will go negative and leave. Chris is a coward and is putting a small fraction of his wealth in, despite literally working for the government department that calculates the CPI.
Regardless of whether I leave, capitalism will collapse and all my predictions will be correct.

If that account looks like Mark this market is guaranteed to resolve NO.
@Mira Yeah I agree that this is probably a Mark Ingraham sock.
I found some more socks too:
@duck_master mystery solved. All the socks go to mark
@firstuserhere Oh and here are some more:
@duck_master That guy socks real hard.
@Schwabilismus Also here's another(??): https://manifold.markets/EuwusuW
@duck_master and @EjeEisis
@duck_master also I think this market can resolve as no.
@Schwabilismus I already found EjeEisis on May 1 (which was three weeks ago!). But also I agree that this is pretty much a guaranteed NO at the point.
There’s also https://manifold.markets/DuSusus
@duck_master .... And Jsjw Jssu
@duck_master And Eis Didis8s
Users "Djj Riri" and "Djj Riri" seem to be alts, too.
@Schwabilismus I bought yes because hope is the last one to die.
@Schwabilismus What a weirdo. Him, not you
@JohnSmithb9be I can be weird, too. But usually only when I intend to.
Will Manifold stop feeding the trolls by end of 2023?
@MartinRandall End troll hunger 2023!
@MartinRandall which platform doesn't have trolls? I think the communities on most platforms do more (via moderation for ex) to manage trolls than the admins of any site. I don't really get what you're trying to say ig
@firstuserhere it's common for returning banned users to have all their content deleted or hidden, for example.
Making markets about banned users is feeding too.
I endorse this now that you've mentioned it. Much of Mark's content, including markets, should be deleted
I've sold my NO. 3% is way too low unless there's yet another Mark Ingraham sock I don't know about.
@duck_master I saw him place a bet yesterday in passing but I don’t keep a stalkerish eye on him.
@JohnSmithb9be OK I bought some NO again.
@IsaacKing: There's also https://manifold.markets/EjeEisis
@IsaacKing: And there's also https://manifold.markets/RjduDususu
Mark now appears to be reporting their own accounts to the mods...
@IsaacKing "I am wild like a mustang", ohmygod. I laughed so hard at this. What is going on with this dude?
Pretty sure I found another one: https://manifold.markets/ShajajWjai
Oh wow, I only knew about a couple of these accounts, had no idea he was so persistent. Will continue hitting the report button when I encounter any trolling
I appreciate how Mark is now giving me a heads up for each new account. Makes this much easier.
Unless of course @xyz is behind it all.
Some new developments!
