I would just like to know why some people have more then 1 idenity and why they do it. It makes no sence to me at this point...and believe me..If I can figure out who a person is incognito...any one can...since im not the brightest bulb...If your doing this...is it to cause trouble? And why would you want to cause trouble on a web site....I dont see the logic in it. Dont you have security enough in your own idenity and self to post as 1 person? If your secure enough in your self who cares what others think if your posting like you feel...well...I hope that your using tact when you post also...Please...some one clue me in...This is getting old...
Really hope nobody would do that...thought about it once or twice when I have put my big foot in my mouth, but make a mistake..who cares. Tick someone off for a day or so.. who cares. Life goes on. Insecure, individuals with persecution complexes or a heck of a lot of free time. I wouldn't be clever enough to pull that off(multiple ID's), my BS would be exposed quickly...cannot act/type dumb.
I once read a thread on another site where there was a very long, heated and interesting dissuasion about something until a mod locked the thread because he noticed that several of the most vocal users were using the same IP. Apparently one person with multiple names was arguing with himself from multiple points of view. That was really funny.
I don't have any other names but this one quite frankly I think if you need to create fake screen names to validate yourself than that's just sad. Sometimes on here it's really obvious when someone comes on with more than one screen name. It's especially suspicious when all of a sudden there are 10 new members posting on one thread for the first time and normally it's always the controversial ones.
I just thought I would ask the members this question...I just dont get it...maybe im just lazy...I use the same name everywhere now...But...I have more then my share of arguing right here then to go online..and argue with my alter ego's on a web site...I agree...Holy Moly...
Actually I posted this to make a point to the one who keeps doing this...that person knows who Im directing this to...
I'm shinyblackpit not only at all times on this forum, but you can also find me on other sites or forums with the same name. I like it cause then if someone happens to know me from somewhere else they know who I am.
Sometimes people think my name is bessielouboobies, or mmmmbop, or what else? Dork, I get called dork a lot. As for secret aliases, huron, I think you did a pretty good job of answering your own question. Some folks just get a kick outta causing trouble is all. It's sad, really. There is so much more to life than stirring the proverbial pot.
I'm just Basset_Lover here on TP. I don't have anything to hide, so don't feel I need 2 or 3 or more identities. (I don't own anymore Basset_Hounds, but I still love them, hence my nickname.)
I suppose if I was to be a troublemaker, always stirring up the pot, so to speak, then I would want to have more than one identity. That way I could praise myself for being so wonderful and knowledgeable, when all I would really be is a pain in the tush. :D
Disclaimer: The opinions expressed by me are not necessarily the opinions of any other person.
I'm me, no getting away from it. As the old song says, "I gotta' be meeeee....". Right or wrong.
Besides that, how many others on the forum have Pyrs? Think I've seen one other off and on. First time I mentioned my dogs as another poster, it'd be a dead give-away. Then again, the typos are also a good clue as to my real identity.
We've had the same problem with some poor individuals suffering from MPD coming on and running a thread (or a few of them) in which they'd either argue with or defend and agree with themselves as several users to keep the thread going. It's rather sad. Not sure if they're OFF their meds or are self medicating???
It's always amusing to see one user vanish from the list of those who are on, then the new assumed name pops up as a new message isposted, then that one vanishes, the old one comes back..as each post is entered, they switch back and forth. Think it was last Nov., maybe before that...one person doing this forgot to swtich back to the other identy and got HERSELF totally confused. She was lambasting herself as if she were someone else!
Sounds like something I'd end up doing if I tried to keep more than 1 identy straight.
iam me, I only use Dallasgoldens. I did sign up under Roxsb, when i was banned, but do not use this, so if you see it, it is not me. One of those things done i angery. Angery us makes some people act stupid.
i have 1 alternate name on the auspet forum. it is asdmom. signed up there last year and those from here who are also members there know i am scout1. since then i have always and will always be scout1. i do not feel the need to hide, sneak or spy. doing that lacks a certain amount of self respect, and class. if i were to ever be banned from this site you could bet your paycheck i would not return under 1 alias much less the tens of hundreds that have been done in the past. (exaggeration ). i stand behind anything i have ever done or said as scout1. i have no need to hide from myself or what i have done.
i should also add that at one time i was a different name on chat....ZooKeeper. several people thought it would be really funny to play a trick on me and i fell for it hook , line, and sinker..lol. but everyone who was in chat with me under that name knew it was me from the beggining. it was never a secret.

I know WE all know who keeps changing recently...I just wanted to let that person know...we are ALL wise to them...and they just look more ignorant doing it...I used to be mudshark on ICQ...but on all the discussion boards since I have gotten really serious about my pets I have been this same idenity...So no sneaking, no spying and no BS....I like it that way...Simpler...and no...I wont copy and paste info..I wont disclose information about others I wont comment on chat rooms..I wont help you gang up on some one....I just think it is silly and want no part of it...
I have multiple identites...but not on this site. For instance on this site I'm Tonka on another site I am kpower on another tinkpink.....it just depends. I only have one per site though. I like to switch it up depending on what site I am on.
Does anyone else see that this post is not animal related and should have been deleted, but no the mods like it, so it stays.
One reason people have other identities is because if they say who they are and have a different opinion, the unfair mods will ban them.... don't you get it yet???
If you don't get it now, you will get it soon.
Huron- you ask why people stir things up... aren't you stirring things up by this post??
There are tons of people that agree with this, but you won't know it because once they start agreeing, this will be deleted and the people agreeing will be banned and accused of being disrespectful....
The truth hurts sometimes people...
Oh yeah- I won't name any names, but there were and probably are certain mods here that came to the other forum under a different identity...so some of you can get off your high horse....
CAse in point......We all know who this person is...why you cant come in as your better know name is beyond me...You havent been banned...so what is your story...Im tired of these "new...one time posters" dredging up another forum too. That was not brought up....I wanted to know why people need more then one identiy HERE...so I think it is site related...but I dont mind if it gets edited...No skin off my nose...Im not stiring ANY pot unless you dont like being called ignorant for using several identiys and coming in stouting your point of view...if the truth hurts...Im sorry.. At least 1 member was honest enough to say she did come in as another out of anger...but you...my dear friend must live angry if that is the case...If you have gotten banned using a name..and use another just let it be know that its you and the reason for it is you have been banned...Because we all know who you are by your vocabulary and the venium you spew...So...your not fooling anyone...Im just too involved in real life to get so wrapped up in cyber life to create idenities to fool the masses...I stand behind any post I have written and if i am wrong Im big enough to apologise too...But I wont log into another person just to get over...way out there...
