Rules against having two user names?

Recommended Posts

Isn't there a rule that you can't have two user names? Yourself and then pretending to be someone else? What do we do if we suspect but aren't 100% sure?

Use the report link and send a report to the mod team. They should be able to check IPs.

 

Good idea. I want to be a little more sure before I make the accusation...

Just asking...why would it matter? Maybe someone wants to discuss something without having their regular name tied to it for privacy. I think that's fair.

 

We did just have a convo on here involving possible spousal abuse. I fully accept some posters may create alter names to cover their true identity when sharing potentially difficult things.

Nope, it's against forum rules because it tends to lead to trolling, among other things.

This person isn't doing it for any reason like that. Most people use pseudonyms. This person, if I'm right, is not doing it for a good reason. They are doing it to be outlandish and mean.

Lol, I thought I was the only clueless one. Anyone else spend time peeking through recent threads, only to be like "Nope. Still don't know." :D :D

If it's the person saying religion is the cause of the "seemingly" mental health issues then I hope that person gets in trouble. That post shocked the shells out of me!! As a person with mental issues, I'm highly offended.

You're smiling because some are upset?

I don't get it, either, Jean. I can't figure out what could possibly be making her smile about this. Someone may have broken forum rules and people are concerned about it. What's amusing about that?

If it affects me, can someone let me know, especially in relation to my thread about mental illness. I'll take it down if need be.

Please don't delete your thread! You're going through a difficult time and hopefully you're getting some helpful information from most of the posts. :grouphug:

Yes it was very rude.

I guess I haven't read any of the posts or threads you are upset about. Is there an argument somewhere? So literally I had no idea people are upset elsewhere here on the Hive. There are quite a few threads I have not opened today. So I am sorry for offending anyone. Truly an innocent mistake.

 

I too take the rules seriously I think it was interesting everybody wanted to know WHO. But I erroneously thought it was just a passing "hey that's so and so" and not a stop to someone being a troll.

Please let me know, too, so I don't stumble into anything. My time here is limited this week.

Me either, but admittedly I haven't been online much lately!

Usually if someone wishes to be anonymous they get another board member to post for them, or - even though it's against board rules - post under a new name and mention something along the lines of being a long time board member seeking anonymity.  Otherwise, multiple user names tends to just spell trouble.

Is it me or is 30 or so people having PMs about who may or may not be breaking board rules very gossipy? Either just post who you suspect of having 2 usernames, or just report the person, or both, but this is very middle school-ish.

I was thinking this too.

Maybe, but it allows debating the veracity of the claim in private, without making public accusations.

Good point. I withdraw my request.

It's one thing if you just want to post something semi-anonymously. I don't think any of us would report somebody who openly said "I'm a long time poster, but I can't ask for this advice under my usual name".

 

But this rule is to keep people from stirring up trouble with multiple usernames, or running around with a zillion sockpuppets.

My friend's dd's psychiatrist told her that.  seriously.   he told her religion was the cause of all her problems, and to stay away from it and her family.  he openly mocked her when she complained about headaches . . .

 

two years later - still with this idiot psychiatrist - another dr found she had a *massive* brain tumor. (that would have killed her if they hadn't gotten it out.)  but yeah - religion was the cause of all her problems . . . note big sarcasm here.

 

eta: and I see whom you suspect, and it does sound like something another specific poster would say.

My impression was that QueenCat started this thread to ask what she should do if she suspected someone of having two usernames. I don't think she meant to create a big drama.

That is SOOOO out of line. I would consider reporting that to his licensing authority.

they talked about suing him for malpractice at the time - and they would have won.  especially as the second dr discovered something was wrong with a simple/in-office very basic neurological test that prompted him to order more extensive testing.

 

both the mom and the dd were so happy it was over, they just wanted to move on.  the mother was angrier than the dd - but the dd was also an adult.

Yes. Enough of us have been burned over the years that we just want to know ASAP if someone is trying to cause trouble.

catwoman- your mailbox is full.

 

I've tried to send some several PMs - but for some reason it says there are (undefined) errors, and won't send.
