    Don’t be fooled by IMITATIONS

    Locked

    by tig2 ·

    There are now two Tigger Two’s. Confusing to say the least.

    Yes, I know. I have posted this before. But having ended the “Self Trained” thread with this information I felt it was only reasonable to bring this message to the masses- most of whom are BORED with the “Self Trained” thread.

    The “member” who started that thread has obviously decided that (s)he would rather be me than him/herself. Considering that the point of that post was that a person with a CS degree is somehow better than someone without one, I think this is rather strange. I don’t have a degree. Why would that person want to be me? My facility with the English language?

    If Spuddy_M thought that stealing my name would send me on a one way trip on the bitter bus, I have news for him. Rather than ride the bitter bus, I am laying the issue before my peers.

    There is only ONE real, live, genuine TiggerTwo- ME. Don’t be fooled by imitations. Although I doubt any of you would be- The difference between my (obviously- based on his/her need to be me!) superior mind and Spuddy’s are immediately apparent. I can form a correct sentence! I am also capable of replying in well thought-out ideas as opposed to the flaming that erupted in the other thread.

    Okay- I called Spuddy a troll. I also compared his paper training (degree) with paper training (puppy). So I’m a bad person… 🙂

    Darn- thought it would take longer to get over it…

      Ok, so we will have to see just what FAKE-Tigger Two has in mind. It can’t be much, because this really shows a total lack of originality and thought, much like the rest of his posts.

      Maybe he is getting ready for that sex change operation, and wanted to start seeing how it feels to be a woman? :0

      than one person could have the exact name. Remember, Stargazzer had to add a z in her name because there was already one with just the one z. Oh, wait, you don’t have a space between your name. That and you’re still the only Ti double gaa errrTwo. 🙂

      Edited to add: you are correct it would be easy to spott the imitation. An imitation may be a high form of flattery but it is never exactly as good!

      …that many of us will detect such acts. Though it is flattering to see someone take your name, I bet it is very annoying to you, to say the least.

      I was wondering one thing though. In answering to OldGuy, you said the following: “They quoted spuddy_m exactly from post in the body but added the title” Reference: http://techrepublic.com.com/5208-11181-0.html?forumID=6&threadID=195828&messageID=2035001

      But the original post does not have anything of that nature. It could be because possible that the post was edited on 6/14/2006 (that is today). Also there seems to be a disclaimer now. I do not know if the content has been itself changed 🙁

      Little confusing. Maybe editing is not that of a nice feature.

        All TR did in the Soapbox was add a title to the original post. I noticed at around 6:00 this morning (CDT) Spuddy had added the disclaimer. I no longer have the Soapbox email from TR so can’t compare with what is currently the beginning of the Self Trained thread.

        I CAN tell you that initially, there was a line in there that said something to the effect that a degreed “professional” in comparison to a non-degreed IT person should be given primary consideraton when looking for a job. That particular point became the basis for the lion’s share of the discussion.

        Pretty sad that after 250 odd responses, he found it necessary to materially alter his original statements.

          I just took issue, albeit slight, with the added title in the TR email.

          Old Guy, I understand completely what you were irritated with. That was why I went back and did the comparison. You were absolutely right- TR had added the header. But they quoted his post exactly.

          Your irritation was that the header- inflammatory- should not have been ascribed to his original post.

          Don’t worry- we’re good! 🙂

          I appreciate your reply. I still like the Ti double gaa errrTwo for you. 🙂 Tigger is my favorite Disney Character. I have a picture of me holding the live character in midair when we went to Disney World a long time ago. I whispered something to him and he just jumped straight up and I had to catch him or he would have hit the ground. It was hilarious. 🙂

          Tigger vs Tiger, a side track :D

          by onbliss ·

          In reply to Thanks,

          I was still fresh in USA when I heard people referring to a tiger doll as Tigger. Knowing that Americans spelled a few words differently and pronounced “Z” as “zee”, I thought this was how Americans pronounced Tiger. But, still I was like “Whaaaat”.

          During conversations I had already heard people saying “teeny”, and I thought that was the pronounciation for the word [b]tiny[/b]. Hence, I thought [b]tigger[/b] was one more such word with a difference.

          It was quite later that I heard of the phrase “teeny-tiny” and became familiar with the Tigger character 🙂

          I chose TiggerTwo because there is a Tigger out in TR land somewhere (never seen him/her)and I was pretty intent on using the name. I’m originally from Southern California and worked for Disneyland in my younger and more limber years. I was originally hired to be in the Electrical Parade but they needed to replace their Tigger. I got to spend a California summmer in an orange and black costume that I could only see down in.

          Some of those old stories are worth the price of admission! 🙂

          Disney Land then I know I love you! That would have to be one of the most awsome jobs in the world. I can imagine how hard it would be due to heat and weight but man, that would be too cool!

          While in Disney World I had been looking for Tigger for three days and hadn’t been able to find him because I wanted my picture taken with him since he is my favorite character. I finally found him on the fourth day and was watching him with a small group of teenage girls around him. I finally got up to him and leaned over and said, “I know you’re a guy because of the way you were flirting with those girls but I don’t care I still love you.” That was when he litterally jumped straight up and I had to catch him or he would have landed on his back. My wife took the picture just then. We had it blown up to an 8×10. It is still my favorite picture.

          In reply to Thanks,

          The rules when I wore the Tigger suit was that your handler was your best (and sometimes only) friend and that they would control the crowd around you.

          I mostly got kids that wanted to play with my… em… tail. As in pull, try to foribly remove, others.

          I was ALWAYS grateful to my handlers!

          We were prohibited from touching the guests beyond some defined guidelines. The characters inside a 100% costume couldn’t talk at all- So the characters like Cinderella and Snow White could speak but not the rest of us.

          Probably the most interesting job I have EVER had or ever will have. But fun!

        I was taking issue with a misleading title in the email that TR sent out that stated, “You shouldn’t hire self-taught IT workers” The key word that bugged me was, “shouldn’t”. I went back to his post and skimmed most of the other ones and I didn’t see where spuddy_m had actually said they should not be hired.

        Although spuddy_m turned out to be the troll that he did I never saw where he made that statement. This means that someone at TR (hopefully through a mistake) stated the title incorrectly and I feel it was somewhat incendiary. I see this in the way some headlines read in newspaper and magazine for the effect.

        (With the exception of myself, of course)

        There have been several of these types lately. There was NotAnUnderage, one last year whose name(s) I can’t recall but posted a bunch of hate spew, and a few others who think that they’ll get a rise out of old school members by being profane or just plain obnoxious.

        Now, I’m not saying that profane or obnoxious is all bad. Lord knows I have an abundance of both traits. It’s just that some folks have no other qualities. You can ignore them completely, but stealing another’s ID is downright rude. I hope TR squashes the false Tigger. If nothing else, he’ll have to create a new ID and lose his history.

          I should have said that stealing an alias is rude. If TR kills an ID, the offending member would have to create a whole new account. And I hope that by disabling an ID, the idiot would have to use a different e-mail address for the new account. Every obstacle they can throw at these wastes of human flesh is for the good.

          I looked over their posts a couple of times and finally concluded that they were two different people. The difference between them was that 1AW goes through life trying to bring sweetness and light into the humdrum existences of people’s lives whether they want it or not and wasn’t taking no for an answer.

          Sister Chek on the other hand was a completely different animal. She made better use of language but this cannot hide the fact that she was a flatulent, mentally diseased old b:tch who had no concept of which way was up. She did insist upon sticking her oar in though, for no apparent reason or intent to contribute, other than stir things up needlessly. Wherever or whoever she is or was, I hope that the fleas of 100 camels are infesting her groin and that a horde of maggots are feasting on what little is left of that diseased little brain.

          I SO need to learn how to do that!

          I was once turned down for a contract because the senior thought I was “too nice”.

          Me. Too nice???

          Okay. Maybe he had a point. Actually happened twice. I don’t get it. I am truly rotten. I tell everyone I am. I even compared someone’s (well, okay, Spuddy’s) degree to the equivalent of training a dog to not urinate on the furniture. That’s rotten, isn’t it???

          I have noticed that neither 1AW OR Sister Chek have returned… as far as any of us know.

          The thing about Spuddy that got me thinking on those lines was the invective that it(?) used in responses and the complete inability to respond to intellegent well thought out posts. I saw that trait in both 1AW and Sister Chek. I did think for awhile that possibly there were two minds at work there- Schitzo? Could be. Just not sure.

          ADDENDUM
          Something “Spuddy” said that caused me to think of 1AW… tjsanko mentioned an acquaintance that had employment issues due to overweight and body odour. The response gave the sense that the individual posting had some control issues and then was promptly dropped. The 2 of 4 reference in the post made no sense as tjsanko mentioned only 2 personal traits. I don’t think the poster was referring to degrees/certs as the response did not lead in that direction. 1AW, at least from the photo, needed a good exercise programme.

        That is very unethical for him to go and edit the entire post down to a period “.”. And to think so many of us contributed to that discussion.

        I was giving him the benefit of doubt, since I did not remember the original post. But this act confirms that he is not here for some good discussions. And by switching the site alias, he managed to make a fool out of himself.

        The one benefit I see from that thread is that it brought about a discussion on the subject (once again), and new readers and/or passive members could get to read them.

          In reply to I don’t think so. He’s been around for a while and………..

          With words to the effect that he wasn’t about to get a copy of the Beta Product from MS because he wasn’t paid to do things like this.

          Apparently his Degree allows him to steep seamlessly between different Platforms without any problems so unlike the rest of us lowly grunts who need to learn he can just walk though life without a problem. This one defiantly reminds me of someone that used to work for me who only showed up to work for the Pay Check and nothing else.

          seems to have another identity, [b]E=[/b] started June 2006 but it has 10K Q&A points. He has the Dr.Jones one as well. Check it out at “.” but I’m positive that’s him as well. It would be interesting to see how he pulled that trick off. Some of Spuddy’s posts are now Dr.Jones and some E=. I think this is now way past the point of being funny.

          Is there any help for the issue or do I just keep looking over my shoulder.

          Insights, anyone? This guy seems pretty intent on f-ing us all around. Is there a need to escalate?

          He created a Q&A question on the subject of Certification and gave it 1000 points. Then [b]E=[/b] answers it nonchalantly and gets the 1000 points.

          And there was one serious answer by [b]Mr.Wiz[/b] that was rejected.

          Just looking at how this was played is further proof that Dr.Jones is just messing around here.

          Here are few more Q&A questions that Dr.Jones asked and awarded points to [b]E=[/b]

          Mainly because this was not the first time that this account was used to start a similar discussion. The same account was used about 18 months ago for the exact same type of thread.

          Now a [b]Work Experience[/b] person wouldn’t generally have that type of access to an account on the same computer but the child of a company Owner would.

      You are NOT welcome to post your brand of bullsh*t here- I don’t care what you call yourself!

      Jay, Smorty, All TR! Please help me stop this horsesh*tter!!!

      Why am I being identified for this? I (a) don’t need it and (b) won’t tolerate it.

      You want to know what hard is buddy? Do you have a clue???

      I heard you talk about how difficult is was to get a degree and work a full time job. Been there, done that.

      Now add being diagnosed with cancer, having surgery, having surgery AGAIN, and while you are at it, deal with some idiot who stole your identity (from your BANK) and the subsequent loss of everything you have until you are living in a street with one breast, going through chemo, too d@mn sick to work and trying to survive.

      Subject: Here I thought you would see through the name right off…
      Message:
      Hey Tig, before you put your fist through your monitor, who was it that kept calling the immitator “FAKE”?

      Who jumped right to your side ASAP?

      Who made a brand new account and started giving people a hard time, in light of everything that has gone on today?

      Of course you wouldn’t recognize the avitar as the one I used for a long time.

      Being upset, you probably didn’t even look at the profile where I was dropping clues all over the place…….

      No, I am not the dipstick that took your name in vain. Do you know who I am now?

          This has gotten under my skin- perhaps more than I really knew.

          I have had someone steal my identity. I am still paying for it- beyond $$$, timing was pretty bad (see earlier post).

          I think that perhaps I should go underground for a bit and work on things that are important and relevant for me.

          And pray. (yes, I know, eeewww!)

          This hurt. I really hate it. I know, hatred is unproductive. I will work with that.

        the more attention he gets, the more he does it.

        After people stop responding, he will get bored and go away. Really not much else can be done.

        The only alternative is to become a stalker and everytime this boy makes a post, you follow it up with something regarding him kissing his mom with open mouth or something.

        He isn’t worth the effort though.

      I just now checked out the thread formally known as “.” (it’s now “Caught”). I can’t read the original post, but it seems like it started as a legit, if hackneyed, degree vs. certs vs. real-world experience discussion. How did it go so wrong?

      I didn’t do a thorough read, but it seems like Spuddy asked a question, then wanted to hear no opinions other than the one he posted. What’s the point of posting a discussion if you don’t want to discuss? The fact that he pulled a stupid stunt like the Tigger rip off has dropped him into the Hall of Shame forever.

      Dawg, you were absolutely right. My ribbon could be taken in vain- just like my name.

      I have sent appropriate email to the right people (I hope) and have posted this nonsense everywhere it made sense.

      I have been through enough. This is really the last I can take.

      I have 24 miles to walk this weekend so I will likely be sporadically in touch. I have to fight a few inner demons as well- there is a part of me that hopes that Spuddy finds a disturbing lump.

      I have some anger management issues here, I guess.
