I can't tell you the number of times I've seen stupid crap happen - ninjaing, horrible play from someone who's usually reasonably good, random gquits without a word, etc., only to have the person come back the next day and say "it wasn't me, it was my brother/cousin/roommate".After a while you start thinking "Sure it was your cousin. Riiiight." I personally wouldn't be comfortable with a situation like this post, with that many people sharing accounts - but I think no matter what, the person whose account it is should be held responsible for the actions of whoever they allow to play the account.We had a guy in my old guild who everyone knew was a shared character - one individual played the pally during our raids, and then during the day and sometimes on weekends another person played the character. We all got to know both of them a bit, and since they were on a schedule we knew who we'd be getting most of the time. All was fine.In my current guild, we actually gkicked a couple of guys who joined together - one as a raider, and one as a non-raider - because we found out that the non-raider buddy was not only in the habit of playing his raider friend's character (during one of our raids, no less), but he bragged about having access to at least 20 different people's accounts and playing them during raids for other guilds. He apparently made it a habit to sound out people who might be willing to let him play their account, and kept track of all their login info for as long as they didn't change the password. That one was a liability to have around.
