Who Am I Really

One of your fellow TechRepublic members has sent you a private message:

From: QASIMARA
Subject: G-Man
Message:
What's with your online contact G-Man talking about train wrecks in a heated discussion about 4G marketing ploys online today? Can you speak for him? If not, I'd please strongly suggest you cut the connection you have with him or get him to take back what he typed.

_________________________________________

A> I don't have any contacts
B> only a couple of members have added me to their contact list
C> I wasn't here today, (before the email)
D> Nor can I find any discussion of the sort where I've posted

is there a bug in the system redirecting PM's to the wrong address?

One of those who died was found 80 K that's 50 Miles for those not aware of what Metric means away from where they disappeared in the water.

That's one **** of a downpour to cause something like that to happen.

But I have some first hand knowledge. Thats pretty darned far.

When I was in grade 9, one of my school mates for three years, did something tragically stupid. He lived near a dam in the river that went through the city, and eventually to a place near my house in the country.

It was April and due to the snow melt the river was very high and fast. He decided to run the dam in a rubber boat. Now I've seen canoists run over the dam in mid summer when the water is slow and much lower. But I wouldn't even put my canoe in the water for weeks after, just too fast (unless you are a whitewater expert). He and a friend put a small cheap rubber boat in the water above the dam and went over. The boat flipped and they were pulled under. No life jackets.

They were not found till a week later, when the river levels lowered and things slowed. They were found by one of my neighbours, near my house. We lived on a section after an oxbow, which slows down the current alot. Total distance by river, probably 6 or 7 kilometres. My younger brother who was about 10 at the time saw something in the water, but as soon as the neighbour recognized what it was, he forced him to get away from the riverbank.

My heart goes out to those who have lost someone in the flood.

and a lot more stories unfolding as time goes by. All of this water from up here will inundate a couple of states to our south.

We can not afford it. If we get hit by a Cyclone or Monsoon we could be in a far worse position than we have already been.

At least those down south are getting a lot of warning, not that that helps much.

G-Man has you listed as a contact.

And G-Man did "diss" someone who dissed someone in a thread about 4G networks/AT&T and T-Mobile.

But what a bizarre email. I don't think any people here can speak for me, and I've met many in person (some more than once). Nor would I expect any of my contacts to try to censor me or get me to retract a post, especially something so innocuous.

I will admit I sometimes find G-Man abrasive, but in this case he was mirroring the behaviour of the person he replied to.

but I have no contacts
and when I look into my profile it doesn't list anyone who has added me

the only indication I have when someone has added me is the "my updates" section:
"xyz has added you as a contact"

but when 7 days have past, that notification vanishes and there's no indication in my profile as to who has me as a contact


because, I wasn't involved in the discussion,
looks like maybe a case of profile trolling

Tammy can tell which member has sent these emails. To me this borders on harassment which clearly contravenes the terms of use of this site. Should be good for a warning.
