If you create a new name to get around this rule and you are a strong player at the lower level, someone is going to do some sleuthing and catch you.
Then please explain how your player did it then? That is the whole point. I hate how the USTA now allows you to sit three years and then appeal with some lame *** excuse and get back to where you were dominating before that led to the bump up and then like a spoiled child takes their ball home and sits, while other keep playing and deal with it.
