Who changed my name!!!

The topic "whats with this loud beeb?!!? was authored by me - bernard.g5.   But this has been changed to quanlan0910

What's going on?  Do I have a doppelgänger?  Am I being denied my 1 second of fame?

Something is amiss, I hope my name does not likewise get associated with anything else.

RE: Who changed my name!!!

Or there are several threads related to the loud beep;  and always possible you posted a second nearly duplicate thread after qualon's post and a mod merged them. Or most likley - you are just looking at the "last post by" information.

Hi tim-m30,

No I was not looking at "last post by" I was looking at "Author".

if you look at your reply don't you think it mighty odd that the posted message in the first one in your list User=bernard.g5 (me) is exactly the same text as the second in your list User=quanlan0910 apparently posted a week later.

And then I see you found a 3rd one with the exact same title but I can't make out what thats about, but I see it say Posted by:bernard.g5 so back to fame again.

RE: Who changed my name!!!

There are apparently more than one sophisticated spam accounts that reply using snippets of text from others threads. The responses look legit. Apparently they work by embedding spam links in the quoted text.

So it's entirely possible a spambot is duplicating entire new topics if they're identical.

In any case, I had no trouble locating your original beeb thread by looking at your activity, such as it is. Suggest not worrying about this too much.

I take it you have surfed to that first thread to see who the author is.   Let me make it easy for you:

tim-m30 - no I did not surf to see the author.  The post was showing (and is) showing on the first page of 'General Discussions'  and the author is clearly showing as quanlan0910.  I recognised the post as mine and wondered how the author could have changed from my name to another.  Simple as that.

It is the simpler things in life ... 

Has it not occurred to you there are two threads with the same title?

yes exactly the same title and exactly the same text.  My bloody text.  I've been plagiarised. 

but really I don't think this would be the case and think there must be a systems fault

and Dear tim-m30 just in case it did not occur to you, but exactly the same text I mean to body of the post not just the same text as the title.  I hope I have made it simple for you too.

Uhm... did you miss the bit I wrote about the spambots? That's what they do. There seem to be a couple of 'em. Don't let it go to your head.

Hey bobstro, I did not miss the spambot notion and I do thank you for that explanation, I was diverted by having to explain, in simple terms, the problem so another contributor who was endeavouring to explain a different theory in their own sweet way.   But this spambot has a username so maybe the moderators need to be aware to remove it?     A couple of 'em?   If you mean the posting title, then yes they are multiplying but if they are not in my name my fame is not spreading so I can't let it go to my head just yet.

Yes yes, you fear and tremble that I see through your mighty wit. You appear to be the sort that inhabits forums to bolster your little ego.  You really shouldn't let it go to your head.

Cant you do better than that?  As your type always like the last word I was expecting a response, but thats real feeble.  Get a grip bobstro I think better is expected of a famed member....  (famed for what I wonder - facetious posts?)

And because others will find these post rather tedious, I consider myself terminated.  Though if any moderator picks up on the original cause for this topic I will be happy to resurrect myself for that purpose.
