My name is being taken in vain

By Tig2 ·
I just noticed that the member who was Spuddy_M and became Sp_M this morning is now Tigger Two. why this person has found it necessary to do this is beyond me. While I recognise that my peers would not mistake him for me, I felt it responsible to provide some kind of alert to the situation. I would not wish to have trolling of any sort ascribed to me.

Hasn't adopted my ribbon though. Couldn't be TRI... or hasn't done the requisite search for the site I got it from.

Tig, this isn't the first time somebody like Spuddy has pulled this stunt.

by sleepin'dawg In reply to My name is being taken in ...

Somebody once did it to Oz once upon a time, in an effort to elevate a little flame war we had going on between us. Oz was quite justifiably ticked off and if I remember correctly, it had the opposite effect of cooling us off a bit. I think you should appeal directly to Jay or Smorty but don't keep silent about this. Post directly to the board and use cut and paste to illustrate your claim. The rest of us will probably climb all over him, like white on rice.

What he is doing is sneaky and treacherous and really has no place here on TR. This type of behaviour is definitely the act of a vile, gutless, troll. Stomp on him.

I've read some of his crap and doubt I would have been fooled for long but thanks for the heads up anyway. BTW my putting his name in the title may be visible to him but he will have no idea of what is being said about him. That should irk him a tad.

BTW, copying your ribbon isn't too difficult to do, but he hasn't got the courage to pull that. Just right click on your ribbon and load it to a photo sharing sight and then upgrade your profile; it's done.

Thanks, Dawg

Second thread coming up!

I thought that you could copy an icon that way. Grrrr! But the fact that he hadn't gone that far suggested to me that he hadn't checked Apotheon's Avatar thread. Apoth is hosting my ribbon for me for the Walk.

I didn't know if I should post to the main thread or in here. Sounds like here is a good place to start.

Thanks again!

Take it to the streets Tig

by jdclyde In reply to Thanks, Dawg

First of all, he won't even see your titles posted in here because you are not in his contact list. (nor is anyone else)

You can't send this troll a peer message, because it is turned off.

I would say take this to the streets, baby! Move it out into open TR and call this loser on it.

"There is only room for ONE Tig2 in this town!" or something along the lines of this.

I think FAKE-tig will soon get many chastisements when people see what is going on, and the ID will change again.

I would START the discussion as if it were an honest mistake or a compliment that someone would idolize you so that they would wish to emulate your name, but point out that this MIGHT cause some confusion.

See you there!

it would be more fun to hunt him down and throw him into a pool full of leeches..with 400 pounds of weight locked to his feet so he can't get out fast. ]:)

Sjeees, Jaqui

by rob mekel In reply to aww

the devil must have given you a special gen to come up with a treat like that.

Just make the pit deep enough so he can't walk out and add a air pipe to the guy so he won't die to lack of air.

One of these days you will have to actually TEACH that class in elegant invective. I am not as good at it.

I want a front row seat please!

I learned that sort of thing in the army. It was always amazing how........

by sleepin'dawg In reply to Dawg...

the most innocent words could be made to sound like swear words. At the time I joined the army somebody or other had raised a fuss about people of all ranks being cursed and sworn at. There were even protests about physical acts like a kick in the butt being too abusive. I assume a bunch of mothers must have been protesting to their members of parliament.

An order came down that swearing and curse words were no longer acceptable language and that it was against regulations to physically touch anyone without their permission. As an officer cadet the only thing separating me from regular soldiers was that I had to be addressed, prefixed by either my rank or sir. The drill seargents very quickly learned how to make the words "Officer Cadet" or "Sir" sound like curse words. You soon learned how to do it yourself with the right sort of intonation. It is a little harder to imply it through writing but I try to do my best. :^0
