“It was very clearly deliberately made to be a troll mod. The fact that the user had to sockpup like a coward to upload the mod showed their intent to troll and that they knew it wouldn’t be allowed.” wrote NexusMods.

“If they hadn’t been a coward and used their main account, we would have simply removed the mod and told them we didn’t want to host it, only banning them if they re-uploaded it after being given plenty of warning. The creation of the sock puppet removed any doubt and made it a very easy decision for us,” they add.
