Gendison







PostPosted: September 23, 2004 10:07 PM 

Stan, can toy please do something about not letting people use names that are already taken. There are at least 2 other people posting as Gendison now, and while they haven't yet said anything that might make me look bad, it's only a matter of time before someone impersonates someone else around here and does make them look bad. The number of posts under my name should tell everyone who has been using the name longer, and who the Fake-Gendisons are, but that's not the point. There's no reason to wait for a problem to happen because of it....thanx.

Damn, believe it or not, that was me that posted above, but it didn't show the number of posts I have. Maybe because I was at someone else's computer. Hopefully, the number of posts (about 396) should show now.

There we go. So just for the record. Anyone postins as Gendison that doesn't have at least 396 posts under their name isn't me. The only reason I'm making such a big deal about this is because I can foresee problems, not only for me, but for everyone here, if people are able to use each other's names. Sooner or later someone will use that to impersonate someone maliciously.

OK that's it...I'm out of here...the above post was not me. I guess he was able to use my e-mail address and now even thenumber of posts comes up. This is the original Gendison right here. The same one that has been here for a few months. The above poster is not. I made the 3 original posts in this thread, but not the last one. The asshole above is impersonating me, and as of now, I am not posting on this board. So, if posts come up claiming to be me, they're someone else. If i come back with a new name, I'll inform you of it. See ya. Have fun, new Gendison, hope you enjoyed being an asshole.

One last thing, and this is the real Gendison again. Stan, hopefully by using the IP addresses, you can see who's who and ban the impersonator. I can't believe you let thid happen on your forum. I knew it was only a matter of time before it caused a problem. I already see the Fake-Gendison insultig other people, telling them their question is stupid in other thread, etc...I'm telling all of you, Im not posting as of now, so any asshole posts claiming to be me, are not.

Gendison, please dont go - why surrender for a moron like this? We all love Seinfeld, and this fact brought us together. And You are an important part of it.

Stay.

Because I'm only asking for trouble if I stay. If I say I'm leaving then you guys know that any insult or annoying post with my name on it is not me. If I stay, nobody will ever know who's doing what. I've never been on a forum where people can use the exact same name, and even worse, copy someone's e-mail address by clicking on their name and REALLY impersonate them. It's rediculous.

Comon' Gendison, the faker has no sense of proper grammer, or sentence structure… We can tell the difference. He's a hack, and shouldn't win! Loser's always lose! He's eventually going to do the same to Jimmy, and J.Chiles, and Lovin,' and Murphy, and everyone else here. He'll continue to fail, and get bored, then leave. Don't let him win! He's a loser! He's the first person (of hundreds) to pull this… should one asshole be able to come along and defeat all of us…THAT EASILY? No way! Fuck him! Very Happy

Yes, I see Gendison. But I still dont think, You should leave. Let´s kick the impostor out of this site. (Or it might be the more elegant way just to ignore him.)

This is the real Gendison again. Thanx guys, I appreciate it. I'll post like this once in a while if I have to, but I'll wait to see if Stan can do something about it first. Hopefully he can see the IP addreses of the person who posted 396 times as Gendison (me), and ban the person who just started posting as me yesterday.

I think Stan should get a different forum format, where you need to give a real email address to register.

Fake Gendison, please don't use nicknames that others are using its not cool. I can ban you, but I would rather not. If you are looking for a cool Seinfeld nickname, take a look at the characters page - there are a lot!

Gendison - the initial post of a new topic nevers shows the number of posts you have. In fact, when you start a new topic, it doesn't even count towards your total (a software limitation that I would like to change)

I don't have an easy way to enforce a policy of using unique names. One option that has become available with the new version of the software has the ability to allow registered posters. But I don't want to force everyone to register in order to post. There may be way to display registered posters in a unique way, I will have to look into it...

I am repeating this from another thread because I see Stan has read this thread at some point.

Blasphemous, unscrupulous, unctuous. OUTRAGEOUS!

Suzie, get me Rich Little on the phone. If these damn fools are gonna attach my name to their words, they might as well sound like me, too!

Hmm, I thought the test was that if you used the screen name and the associated e-mail address you registered with, your screen name would appear in blue AND your number of posts AND your nickname (as given by Stan) would appear. Otherwise one or more of these conditions would be missing. And, as happens to me on my other computer, if you don’t put in your screen name AND e-mail address, the post will have no author. Guess I was wrong.

This actually ruins EVERYTHING in terms of this site. This is the first and only post in this thread by “me” - the person who has used the J. Chiles moniker for many months. But how is anyone going to know if THIS is really that person? Or, if they are all by the same author and not even the real Gendison? Head spinning like a top, or did I just blow my own mind?

Tell you what. I don’t like the sound of this. Somebody’s in big trouble, mister! And I am OUTTA HERE, until this issue is resolved.

GET ON THE CASE, STAN, or you may have a very lonely forum! I think this has been expressed sufficiently and often enough that action can be considered long overdue. Sorry, but I don’t think I’m the only one to feel similarly.

I'm gonna join Gendison and J.Chiles and stop posting until this gets fixed. Stan, this is not a protest to you, or any sort of threat. If anything, I appreciate all the work you've put into this site, and have no right to expect anything else from you.
Later all,
rio

Well said Rio...This is the real Gendison again (whether you all believe me or not is out of my control). Just want to say that through all this complaining I neglected to say that this is not a protest against Stan at all. I'm totally grateful for this place and for the fact that he didn't require people to register just to post. But, unfortunately, it just takes one loser to change all that. Nothing against you Stan, but you might have to change the format. Thanx.

And I am greatful to you who have posted actively in the forum. The credit goes you for making this is good forum.

After sending this post, I am going to take some immediate steps to block the imposter. If you notice this kind of thing happen again -- please send an email at imposter@stanthacaddy.com. I will do whatever it takes to make sure you guys don't stop posting -- just let know what needs to be done. Hopefully after blocking this person, we will have seen the last of Bizarro Gendison and Bizarro J. Chiles.

While I am at, I have been meaning to ask some of the active forum members (you know who you are) if you would like to become a moderator. Basically this would entail deleting duplicate threads and other related admin tasks. As you know, I have been really busy and don't have a lot of time to spend on the board. If you are interested, send me an email at moderator@stanthecaddy.com.

To the extent that we know that message was truly from Stan. And that is the point, no? Unless there are active controls that make it impossible to accomplish what Gendison (real or fake) has been able to do (replicate screen names with color, number of posts, and nicknames) we will never know for sure "who is who".

I've been on several boards where screen names are singular (no one else can use them) or, if you're not a "member", you have to use your e-mail address or are assigned common "Bob Saccomano" name that applies to ALL non-member posters. That seems to be what we need.

Did I just type this, or was it someone else? Was that Gendison's point, or was it someone else's? Is your mind blown, or are you sane?

All that said, I like the site and don't blame Stan for the actions of these losahs! Looking for Stan, or someone, to fix the situation, though. If I could do it myself, I would.

The main imposter has been banned.

Gendison, while I appreciate you drawing my attention to this, you really shouldn't have sunken to the level and started posting under other people's names -- that wasn't needed in order to prove any point. In fact it just makes things worse becuase it encourages others to do the same.

I am going to look in to doing something like J. Chiles suggested, in which registered users appear differently that unregistered users. I have to do some research first though....
