"Related:" shows people who used the site with the same IP in the last 7 days, where that IP is the latest IP the other people listed used. This does not mean they are the same person. They can be siblings, friends or people from the same school, library, dorms, apartments, starbucks or otherwise wireless network connection. They can even be neighbors who don't know each other but share the same cable company which uses the same IP for multiple households in the same neighborhood.
Why add the feature?
This is mostly to prevent people from making sock puppet accounts for trolling or manipulation. People would make new accounts for anonymous PM abuse or cyber attempts thinking it was a way to avoid their main account from being banned. Since creating new accounts on eliteskills is so easy and doesn't require email there needed to be a way to mitigate the problem. If you have abandoned accounts they won't show if they weren't accessed in the last 7 days. If you have other accounts that you didn't want anyone to know about I apologize.
