Someone nicked my nick

Post by SilentSwan » Tue Sep 20, 2005 4:11 am

Well, sort of.

Just in case you happen to see my callsign and it is NOT LOGGED IN, then it is NOT ME. Someone out there is an impostor. Last seen as "The Silent Swan"...

Does this mean I have groupies now?

From losers.org:

They follow bands around their world tours. They follow every detail in actors' and actresses' lives. They brag about their obsessions with a certain kind of sick pride. They like inanimate things to the point of obsession.

I guess I'm so bizarre, I don't even fit most of those categories... maybe a greenie a little bit.

I've never been especially keen on being placed in boxes, though :) Padded rooms, maybe, but not boxes.

usually i don't like to think of myself as this or that because i don't really fit in anything either. among the loser types i found myself closer to those three though. come to think about it i'm more a quitter than a loser. this probably being related to not giving a s..t about what people usually find important. meh, i'm surely having ego issues too. :roll:

If anything I'd fall into hobbyist, but I'm not as bad as most of those guys.

I thought that site was amusing until I found the one about the guy who made love to his truck. :cry:

Back on topic: I have been told that people play on Mofo under similiar names as mine. I guess as long as they're not trying to ruin your reputation, there's not much you can do.

there was some guy with the callsign+signature Mean Granalishi (like Green Manalishi, only meaner) :lol-old: at one time. of course being really impersonated can be less fun and i've had my share of that too.

Well, overall, I just mentioned it here not because it bugs me really, but just because if this person misbehaves someplace, I don't want anyone thinking it was ME :)

I saw "The Silent Swan" at Secretplace. He kept rejoining but I hunted him and killed him twice.

Yeah, I've heard he's getting around a bit. It's all good... but if he misbehaves, just know i'm innocent :)

Well... yeah... I know, "innocent" is not typically a word applied to me, but... you get my meaning.

Now and again some smart *ss'll come in with the nickname 'Lirael_Goldenhands' just to tick me off. I don't let it get to me, though; just ignore any remarks they make and blow 'em up 'till they get frusterated and log out. :)
