VAXman Nickname Identity Theft (308 comments)

Hmm, it seems like it would be rather easy to assume someone's identity, especially for totally anonymous nicknames. "Yes, I ran a major website for 10 years under the nickname CmdrTaco" - not really a great example since everybody knows his real name, but you get the idea. This actually became an issue in a different forum which I was involved with.
