Point other than being annoying, and potentially grounds for legal action?

Sounds like a good way to get a lot of fan mail if anyone figures out who you are.

I hereby only authorize Larry Zebbart and Jeffrey Zeldman to hijack my online identity.

Even I don't want to be me.

Hey, as an added bonus, we run up the MeFi user numbers in a hurry with all the fake names, thereby making the genuine, low-digit names even more valuable.

A plan only the Cabal could be devious enough to devise.

I don't know, the whole thing makes me question all my assumptions about the world around me.

Someone did go through the effort of taking my "AntwonDotCom" as an AIM name. Hrmph.

Yep, it is. At least I know I'm me.

Before anyone else says it, this is like "Being John Malkovich" in spades.

I'm only here to see if anyone posted as me. I'm such a loser.

Wow - you kids take yourselves way too seriously... I suggest a non-computer-related hobby, preferably one that requires interactions with other human beings...

Mutual masturbation - what a fucking brilliant analogy. Kind of reminds me of my sheep-raping days in Ohio.

speaking of AIM names -- my AIM name is "rebekah dot org" but one day a couple months ago a bunch of my friends got IMs from someone using the AIM name "rebekah jude org" (rebekah jude being my name name).

creepy as hell. and, as far as i know, untracable.

Proof of identity.

You know, if we can get DoublePostGuy to post here, we could get another clue as to his identity.
