Uh-oh, I may be guilty of the same thing - not to hijack, could one of the mods please PM me? A few weeks ago all (ALL!) my info may have been compromised, credit cards, checking accts, etc etc. I changed the password on "eryka" account & started using this one - which is the same id as for cruisers forum. Kinda bummed to lose my rep points, but at the same time, I'd hate for my friends to get a message from "me" asking to be bailed out of some jail in Nigeria - just send a few thousand $$ and everything will be fine, etc etc.

Eryka, in your case when we became aware of the compromised accounts we took various measures including over-riding passwords and ultimately banning your previous account "eryka" to prevent unauthorized use. I will only add that, as in the case of the o.p. in this thread, it is always best to contact moderators first.

Notice:

In the spirit of just being a contrarian, I'm changing my screen name. Unfortunately, I can't thing of anything very clever, so I'm changing it to SlowButSteady. If this is too confusing, I'll be happy to change it back.

Actually, I accused you of working/posting as a mole simply because of the way you post and the fact that you repeat your talking points so often. ( Edit; Oh, plus the fact that you never talk about boats.) I don't even remember the sarcastic comment you made. There have just been too many of them.

You can set it aside if you like, the fact is that it is common practice with companies that are interested in promoting their propaganda.

Anyway . . .

I apologize for the whole mess.
As you should.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go and take Ragster off ignore and put you back.

Okay everybody, we've got this particular username issue squared away. Unless you've got something very witty to add*, how about we just let this one go now? Thanks.



* For instance: Who chooses "cruisingdad" for a username, anyway?

And I thought there was a restriction on personal attacks. The first few replies on this thread are vitriol.

It's a well established fact that when people's arguments are unsound, they resort to personal attacks.

You can actually learn a lot by talking with people who are being personally attacked. Over time, you learn things that others miss. I started that practice in high school and wouldn't have done otherwise.

Regards,
Brad
