I was looking around Jes's site earlier, and found a 404. With sponsored links on it. Two of which were to some kind of device called a "Jes-Expander". It's reasonably obvious what it is (and don't look at work unless you want your boss or coworkers to laugh at you forevermore ;) but nevertheless I am still amazed. It's rather TheTED material.

I mean, if you pay €579.00, you can have a 24 carat gold-plated Jes-Expander with your initials engraved into it.

So wrong. So very wrong ...

And yes, my name is Malvineous Q. Nemesis, and I work for Guerilla PR. Goodnight and sleep tight. (Especially all those of you who the hot woman co-worker who sits next to you that you want to bone, is now turned off you forever for what she saw you looking at ...)

I haven't followed the link, but does anyone else read much worse things into that name? I guess /. & b3ta have corrupted me. [Wink]

Corrupted? I think you're mistaken there d-man. After all, if it weren't for b3ta and the ilk, you'd innocently click on innocuous sounding links like lemonparty - b3ta is your savior! [evil]

dragonman, I imagine the link is every bit as suspect as you imagine. I don't think b3ta corrupts, it awakens the true cynic within you to help you understand the realities of human life. (i.e. what Sosumi said) And since it was me who posted the link, what did you expect, Care Bears? :)

But that said, I still don't understand why anyone would buy what they are offering. Not the base product, but the silver- and 24-carat-gold-plated versions at over twice the price.

He was all interested that we live in the same state, now he can be more interested that we have the same name!
coincidence? unlikely!

I always thought that using someone's real name in the forum posts was frowned upon, as it rather renders the point of forum names, which I assume is something to do with online privacy, redundant, but I notice that uilleann has used dragonman's and TCTQ's forenames in recent posts, and now uilleann has posted TCTQ's whole name. I know uilleann that you are such an expert hacker that you probably know all our names and credit card details etc., [Wink] but I don't know whether it is a very good precedent to use them in public forum posts. I don't really know enough technical stuff to form a real judgement, but it doesn't smell right to me.

What do others think?

I know what d-man's real name is, and it isn't what I saw in the post a couple weeks ago. [Wink]

I think it depends on how much information a person gives out. Most people know my first name, but my new married last name most people butcher anyway, so I am hesitant to give it out. [Confused]

Taco has been very open about his identity, which is why uill has had no qualms about it.

Also:
He has been taking the piss out of me by using a false given name, though - he knows that I'm cautious about such details. [Razz]

I could care less if others online knew my real name. It is easy enough to find out who I am by going to my profile page and following a link to my website. It is just as easy with many others who have web thier web sites linked in thier profile. I make a point of never posting stuff online that could get me in trouble in real life. i.e. posting about coworkers or trade secrets. I would post with my name if I wouldn't look like no nothing internet newb for doing so.

I do understand though that others relish thier online anonymity. I think you should only post peoples names in forums if you know the person well enough to know they don't care.


That being said, I do wonder about who some people really are. Like ASM for instance. I get the vibe that he is living in a mental institution and getting on the nurses computer to post when she isn't looking. Really. You don't get that vibe?

EDIT:

Am I going insane? Didn't we used to have in our profile the ability to post our website? Am I just thinking of other forums and we never had this ability here??

We did, as evidenced by this symbol that some of us have:  -

Now I see no way of entering or changing a URL. [Confused]

Hmm...I see nothing there. [Wink]

Still I do see a "Homepage" listed for you. [Smile]

Ash: Take a look at your profile - you can see it's corrupted somehow and your web page appears to be listed under "Interests."

Snaggy: Me thinks your assistance is needed. [Smile]

I purposly listed my homepage under interests as I posted a few hours back that one can find out who I am by going to my profile and finding my blog. After I posted this I went to check my profile for thes first time in months and found that My blog was not linked. This promted my edit asking about the links. Others seem to still have thier webpages linked. Maybe I never linked mine.

I seem to recall linking to a site before, too, but there's no box for it now. Perhaps it was removed in light of some of the undercover spammers?

My uncle Ron died not long ago this year, the only person I've known with a camcorder; I was reminded at the time -- and again now -- of the recording he made of my sister and I as kids each with our Care Bears his wife knitted, flapping their arms and pretending they were flying. At the time, I enjoyed watching it play backwards :)
