My ID was stolen by Tweev in the following thread:

http://www.eggheadforum.com/index.php?option=com_simpleboard&func=view&id=858158&catid=1

I have registered a complaint to WMK, but in the meantime, you should be aware that inappropriate posts may not be coming from the apparent member, including yourself.

I don't know how he did it, but you can see that 2 people were signed on at the same time with the apparent same ID. He says in his "justification" that I started it, but I ask you to look for yourselves.

I will not continue to post if people can't be assured that it is from me.

For proof, here is the member activity list awhile ago.

    Dam, a registered troll :( :sick:
  • Gary, Most of us can tell the difference by the content B) DOW
  • That's actually semi-old news, which is sad. because fidel (i believe) brought this to our attention a while ago, and i'd thought the forum gurus fixed the loophole. guess not

    it seems some village is truly missing an idiot.
    Why would someone do that?
  • Village IdiotVillage Idiot Posts: 6,958
    Well, Tweev continues to use my ID in his posts.

    Folks, I'm out of here. You all have been great, and I can't tell you how much I've learned from you. Hopefully, I've added to the forum also.

    However, I will not participate when another person pretends to be me. Especially one like this Tweev character.


    I look forward to seeing you all at the Texas Eggfest !!!!!

    You need to stop posting period...95% of your posts are confrontational or antagonistic..you've done nothing but cause trouble since you showed up..you've managed upset (for lack of a better term) about 75% of experienced and respected forum members...and not one of your posts has ANYTHING positive to add to this wonderful community...I really have a hard time understanding why you persist...
  • has Tweev show us any Egged foods yet????

    Dude, we don't CARE. Just leave.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    I've seen him show his butt plenty...but it wasn't cooked on an egg.

    Not sure what the nature of the offensive or off topic posts were. But I would have thought that a forum on BARBEQUE would be safe from such nonsense. Jeesh. I work for a fairly large city, watch blogs, and have come to conclusion that anonymity has brought out the worst in a lot of people. I've seen blog entries (hey, one is devoted to my department's supposed conspiracies)...no matter what the insanity that is posted, I decided a long time ago under NO circumstance would I engage ... such idiotic nonsense. I think I saw a tag on one of this boards posters to the effect that you shouldn't argue with an idiot...anyone watching cannot tell you who's the idiot. Leonard Pitts had an editorial today about the corrosiveness of anonymity on internet boards and blogs. I don't always agree with him but he was spot on. Anyway, I just had to share my thoughts on this. Life's too short to engage in antagonizing people or anonymously attacking with the vitriol I see out there. Can't a forum on the use of a bbQ grill be a safe place to go and discuss grilling? Hey, if you want to bitterly argue the merits of a technique or product, go for it!

    Well. That was a lot of non BBQ test from a newbie egger!
  • WessBWessB Posts: 6,937
    Agreed and accepted..but occasionally a problem needs to be addressed....and is not always publicly brought to light how much impact it is actually having..but in reality you are absolutely right..this is a bbq forum and it shouldn't be a boxing ring...but it also is a forum based on a lot of members who are, or at least consider themselves to be, a family, and intruders aren't always welcomed with open arms....no disrespect at all intend to your reply..very well spoken I might add..

    Gary,

    The earlier post was a different spelling of your handle, substituting a "1" for your capital "I" in Idiot. Now you show a Member list with 2 "Idiots" signed. Hmmm. That's a different problem and I am surprised that can happen. I don't blame you for being pi$$ed.

    I hope you will re-consider leaving. I have enjoyed your contributions. Most of us have no problem telling which are the legitimate posts, as Tweev has yet to post anything related to egg food.

    He will not last long, as I think most regular posters will simply ignore his posts and he will eventually go away. Just hang in there. :)

  • Time to limit the posting to registered and verified posters...
  • Identity stolen? The entire forum has been hijacked!!!!!
    How long will this continue? :blink: :huh: :whistle: :pinch:
  • ClamClam Posts: 117
    Thanks.

    Trolls should simply be ignored.

    I enjoy Garys posts and hope he returns.
  • WessBWessB Posts: 6,937
    which matches your every post...non productive, or helpful..but more antagonistic...take a more productive attitude or stop getting involved..
  • skwerlskwerl Posts: 29
    Please tell me I didn't join a high school forum. I signed up to learn, not to get involved in child like conversations.
    Is there another Egg forum out there so I can learn?
  • BacchusBacchus Posts: 6,019
    "CEO of Lifelock" made me LOL. That's the best thing I've seen on the forum lately, and from a troll no less. Thanks whoever you are!

    It comes and goes, most people here are more than willing to help. But you always have a few.

  • WessBWessB Posts: 6,937
    This is cyclical..ya just will learn in time which posts to open and which to ignore..this forum is still the greatest resource of BGE cookin info that's out there...only personal experience will tell ya what names to trust..
  • WessBWessB Posts: 6,937
    Ditto..

    I like Tweev's version of Village idiot much better than the village idiot's version of village idiot. :P :P

  • fishlessmanfishlessman Posts: 22,874
    i thought they fixed that, i know when the forum changed into its current format i was logged in and could use any handle, and i never logged in until just a few weeks back. i tested it with ron's handle rrp, and i know he would have reported it. and i hvae to say i know as little about puters as is nescessary
  • FidelFidel Posts: 10,172
    Fishy -- i know a way to make any handle appear with a post I make, while logged in under my name and handle.

    I reported it to WMK/WPB when I discovered it. They didn't fix it. Thankfully I only use my powers for good and not for evil.
  • fishlessmanfishlessman Posts: 22,874
    yeah, i could do it without being logged on, did it once to freak rrp out :laugh: let him know who it was with the next post. :laugh: it was really simple to do and i dont know if it was ever fixed, at the time i assumed it was a glitch with the compatibility of the forum and the aol that i use. aol acts differently here than other browzers, sometimes i need to change them to get things to work

    Nothing to see here.

    From the movie The Untouchables:

    I'm just saying... :huh: :S :blink:
