BTC and PPC can't be merge-mined as they use the same algorithm.

Is there a way to submit the same share to the btc pool as well as the ppc pool.

Run 2 different instances of your miner, each pointed at a different pool.

To be clear, this is splitting the hashing power, right?

Edit: I said this because it's not really "merge-mine".  As the thread went on, it seems the OP may not even appreciate the distinction.

Yes.

Otherwise I'd be running an instance of CGMiner on every single pool I could find!

No. The "problems" for each currency are different, so the "parts of the solution" (shares) can't be the same for each currency.

I try to be very patient with newbies around here, but every single one of your posts has been massively ridiculous. Can't tell if you're trolling, or just that completely clueless. Almost every single thing you have asked can be found either by searching here on the forums, googling for an answer, or just reading around! Please just stop.

Totally agree, you have taken spoon feeding to a new level...

Each hash is unique for the pool its mining on, work done for one pool wont work on another pool, its just that clear cut & simple.

ABCPool.co states that "A cheater can submit only shares and withhold any blocks found. This way the pool must pay for the shares, but will never earn anything because it does not know about the found block."

how can someone do it?

can it be done with a miner?

Yes, you can simply not send blocks you find, just to hurt the pool.  However you would have to have significant mining power to really hurt, and the pool can do things to find out and ban people who are doing this to them.

You may do so to hurt the pool but you will never profit from doing this. Satisfied?

If they're both SHA-256 why can't you merge mine PPC/BTC ?
