Not sure where to post this....

Some guy using A Meteorite's name (in all lowercase) has been obviously cheating on a server called "pie the sky" (pieinthesky.bettagirl.com). He can't be hit, even after I shot him about 5 times head on. Even the worst lag I've seen can't be that bad.

Just thought I'd give you guys a warning.

Yes, I am quite aware of this. It is Mr. Molez and Death Barrel (aka, Christopher Reeve's Wheelchair).

Basically, if you see anyone playing as me but unidentified ('-' beside the name), or any ridiculous misspelling of my name, it is not me, and you should precede to a poll ban or contacting an admin. You could also IM me what server he is at and I am able to ghost him.

That happens to me sometimes. People will sometimes try and impersonate me or 1 of the people I know. I don't always use this callsign so I do catch people in the act.

Why am I not surprised that's a lie? What a disgrace.

See: http://my.bzflag.org/playerinfo.php?cal ... niper12345 No one has even played under "sniper12345"

hey, when you ban the copycat, make sure you ban him by IP instead of callsign

Well, banning by callsign does not really work... you would have to have direct access to the word filter and it would block the real people as well. Banning impostors will not ban the real person's BZID, as the server only knows the BZID when the person is identified. That means all bans on impostors are IP only to begin with.

If you see someone is impersonating me, please poll ban him. If it turns out that i'm the one banned...then...umm..To Be Continued.. :twisted:
Also pm me in-game or on BZBB to tell me about it.

Yes. Mr. Molez only changed his ways for a short time after the December 2005 events, and he was back to his old ways.
