A Case of Replaced Identity

Post by Jason on 7th April 2013, 9:17 pm

In this day and age names are everything. Once you tell someone your name, they directly associate your name with your actions. If you mess with someones name you mess with their identity. I've done a lot of work to build a respectable image for myself around here. You all know me as Jason; The former banker, former head of CCWN, the guy that likes brownies, has a passion for God, a keen sense of writing and a love for Odyssey. It takes time to build up credibility around a username. A person without a name, is like peanut butter and jelly without bread. Or in this case calling bread rocks and expecting people to know the difference.

Today I would like to bring to your attention a case of stolen identity. Or misplaced identity? Trivial matters aside, my name was callously stripped from my account and replaced with Sammy14 as shown in the picture below by none other than NarniaQA Guy. Earlier, it was changed to Toady and Jumpy by Samantha14. The point is, I didn't give permission for the changes in any of the ocurances, and I had no power to defend myself.
Spoiler:

The conversation in the chat box is very interesting isn't it? It's starts with Sammy saying WHY IS JASON ME? and then goes from there.

This kind of thing has been going on between the admins a lot lately. Between Admins is it ok? That's their buisness. Slightly better than picking on non-power members who can't fight fire with fire? I think so. So what am I suggesting? I am formally suing the two of them. If they should decide to settle out of court I'm open to possibilities. I'm a simple guy, and I wouldn't ask for too much. angel 2

Spoiler:
*Disclaimer: This is 90% intended for fun, and there are no actual hard feelings for the action on hand. I do have a sense and laughed during the action. This disclaimer cannot and should not be held against me in the court case.

I agree, messing with usernames is a big deal. On a forum like this, where our avatars change all the time, our usernames are all we have to prove our identity (well, also our user IDs, but nobody really cares about those anymore). I don't mess with my name, and I don't think people should be able to mess with other user's names, whether or not they can fight back.

It all comes down to trust. On a forum, you need to trust that your leaders won't do stupid stuff.

He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
forever.

That's my thoughts exactly. I am thankful that they were kind enough to change it and change it back while I was online. But it's the principle of the thing. You change a person's name, you change a person's identity.

Actually, we have ten administrators. Most of 'em aren't active. Smile

I guess the explanation for why admins are active more is because they have to be active more to do their jobs.

I'd get a lawyer too, but I think I'll represent myself. Yes
