I am surprisingly angry to see my nick used by other people in places I don't frequent.

I mean, how dare they.

I haven't heard of more than half those services and I don't use special-k anywhere but here and on mefi.

Whoa, that's neat.

Looks like I've got a busy evening ahead.

I got miffy that other people were using my nick, but when I actually clicked for more info, it gave me some variation on "this user does not exist."

For the record, I'm only jrossi4r here and Mefi. Any other jrossis are false prophets.

I completely disavow all those other DarkForests. Next time I'll be way more careful about picking a unique user name.

Conversely, I take responsibility for all WolfDaddies and any derivatives of same. I was the first and the best baby.

Well, maybe not.

Strangely enough, pretty much all of the ones that are taken are taken by me.

What the heck? Seriously? Who the hell took that? I just tried logging in with all known passwords that I've ever used, none of them work, so I'm fairly certain I never registered it.
It shows up as taken at hellotext, but upon checking it's available.
And I apparently signed up for "multiply," though I don't know what the site is or what it does. But my username and password work, and my name shows up on the page. Huh.

It claims that 'box' is taken at gmail, but, in fact, gmail doesn't allow three-letter usernames.

Most of the other sperose's on that site are me. Nice.

Sounds like a badly translated foreign porno.

That would be fun, wouldn't it? Find some foreign porn text and run it through google translate...

Pub, which I like to talk about nudist Stan'll may be. How in my birthday suit all day to turn in the office. Lads'll and all the laughing. And one of them must say: 'But your net bollock naked? 'He said Stan'll:' this is nonsense about! 'Everything will laugh. Before, all the clothes off of me knows, however, to hear what I have to say there will be a violin and I hit the red. Is naked, in this place where you do not have. Clothes'll me, was missing. I returned home in the cold, and was able to goose, acne, my everything, and I laugh all the Staring

Out of thirty-odd boxes, the only box that's me is the one.

All those fraudulent scodys will be hearing from my lawyer.

Oh, I know some of them are lying. I tried for thirty minutes to get lysdexic at flickr.

Heh, funny DarkForest.

For such a lousy user name, mine is taken on all the usual suspects (like eight of them) and none of them are me.

I'm only jonathanstrange here and at mefi. All others are not endorsed by this username. Well. This user on this username, anyway.

I'm not the real ColdChef. He's a user on MetaFilter, and when MetaChat opened, I got his nickname over here before he could. I've been posting and pretending to be him for years now. Occasionally, he'll send me an email and ask me to knock it off, but there's really nothing he can do about it.

I've been doing this for years now and no one's caught on yet that I'm not really him.

dabitch@gmail is taken ??? That ain't me, just FYI.
posted by dabitch 30 November | 10:47
Neither schyler523@gmail nor schyler523 @ LiveJournal is me...most of the other ones are me though.
posted by Schyler523 30 November | 23:38
Hmm, I think there is a bug with this. Many of the sites that show "dg" as taken don't allow that as a username (too short - I know, because I've tried). I think the site is just checking if the name is available and, if not, saying "taken". Not really all that accurate, after all. Moderately cool, though.

yeah some of those sites don't allow dabitch because of the bitch-bit too (like ebay). And that myspace one ain't me! AAaargh!
