Discovered Someone Else is using similar Username
I was checking in on the forum and came across a post that looked like was one of mine. Upon further checking it was posted by another member using the same basic user name as mine. I originally had noticed that the format was identical to mine, with one exception; a letter was missing; old-goat vs mine; olde-goat. I registered in 2009, other member joined in 2011. Checking in with a moderator there is not much that can be done in this type of situation. It looks like the system is not smart enough to pick up on subtle differences and I guess you can register a user name by just taking someone’s user name and just adding or deleting a letter and you are good to go… I have traded PMs with a number of other forum members over the years and exchanged contact information etc and just want to make all aware to make sure to read the user name carefully. Unfortunate as it is with all the issues going on the internet; identity theft, scamming etc you cannot be too careful.
