One specific user recently went on an account creation rampage. Many mocking or imitation nicknames were created, as well as some deliberately targeting frequent posters who have not yet registered their name.
To the person who did this: Don't do it again! I know who you are but will not reveal the identity of your "real" account(s). For all the time it took you to create these accounts it took me 5 minutes to write a script to identify and delete them.
If you are an "anonymous" poster and your usual nickname was taken: Please let me know by posting in this thread or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
. I will return ownership of a nickname to whomever has actually used it. I will use your IP address to verify authenticity.
If you usually post here anonymously with the same name: Now is a good time to register! You do not need to provide a real email address or any other personally identifiable information.
Registering an account guarantees that nobody else can forge or spoof your name.
Please use the "report this post" feature of this forum if garbage like this happens again. I now have FU related mail going to my BlackBerry along with everything else so response times to abuse should be much shorter.
Because of this action the following garbage accounts have been deleted:
???'s Penis *1 post also deleted
Fairfax MF---er *1 post also deleted
pgens. *1 post also deleted
And yes this post is off-topic and will be moved to the appropriate forum once enough people (and one specific person) have viewed this post.
