Whatever. Imitation is a apparently a form of flattery?

If someone else wants to be shortman then so be it.

I'll be like prince.

I realize changing your own username will update your previous posts, what I'm talking about is someone else hijacking your username and posting random posts which may conflict with the 'real' user. For example if someone hijacked my username and started posting normal, logical and understandable responses people may be confused...

Some people may not care, some may; apparently most like turtles...

When you put it that way it makes more sense;) Sharing really is caring...

Not really but it's something I can live with... Not sure how I feel about the moniker shorty though. It sounds small and makes me feel sad:(

I think the issue is if the words tre bueno or no chic (which sounds totally sexist to me) are allowed when f--- and c--t are banned which are perfectly good activities/things?

Fair enough.

I don't get it. What do you mean? A person who newly registers doesn't usually read up on all the usernames, in some cases, it can be coincidence I think. But otherwise it's lame! Be original, or try to at least.

Are you dyslexic, or just a split personality?

I am actually mildly dyslexic, and it's a five way split at the moment. Down from 7 a few years ago. It's hard sometimes because people don't understand the difficulties. I never know who I am.

Surprised no one has mentioned it yet BUT allegedly (according to a friend experienced in these matters)

You can't hijack a name unless the incumbent has vacated it previously. So there is no need for mormon snails who are happy to remain so for the rest of their lives to lose any sleep.

Why would someone vacate a name? I offer you two suggestions:

1. They are playing the game - in which case they are up for it and is why I am who I am

2. They are complete fossil librarian types like M9 - and the thought of hijacking one of his old names is a bit yukky. Kind of like thinking of your parents having sex - eeeewwwwhhhhhh

You raise a very salient point about how a username can be liberated, and ask a great question; Are all snails Mormon?

I vote that hijacking a vacated name is kosher because the hijackee is knowingly opening themself up to this possibility and choosing to represent themself as a different user.

On the other hand, creating a profile with the same icon and a tiny change to the username (like the addition of a punctuation mark for example), in order to mimic an active one, is not cool. It could be interpreted as deformation of ones painstakingly constructed chocky identity and the more sensitive among us could get our sensitive little feelings hurt.

... he says as he opens himself up as a target for profile imitation.

Actually I think they would understand it wasn't you.
