1. I tried to use my DU name.

Evidently, Skinner's "suggestion" that we not use our DU names was a very STRONG suggestion.

so he can release it to you.

All the DU user names are blocked so trolls can't steal your name and your reputation.

47. That sucks--sorry to hear that.

I suppose you could sign up at those sites and find the weak spot of the person using your name, and tease them until they do something that gets them a tombstone--that would fix it, but it would take some work to find out how to push your nemesis's buttons!

(If you simply must use the same username, you can request it here on DU by sending a DU Mail message to Elad with the title "Discussionist username" so he can release your name to you. We have set aside all usernames from DU so trolls can't grab them on Discussionist, but we have not copied over your email or password for privacy reasons.)

Had to think a bit as to what to name myself, since I didn't want any obvious connections to any other message boards. Don't doubt that I will manage to be anonymous here, though, as I am not a prolific poster anywhere, and probably won't be here either.

I guess I should have chosen a username with reading in it.

55. Troll2 has the advantage that a simple google will bring up lot of other links

I bought the DVD of “Troll 2” because a friend advised me to see it. “You're busy,” he told me. “You don't have time to see every bad movie. So you might as well see the worst of all time.” Yes, “Troll 2” has a coveted zero percent rating on the Tomatometer: the lowest-rated film ever made. A critic could become the most-hated person in fan circles by awarding it even half a star and spoiling the perfection of that zero.

35. No rejection

I was going to use my DU name, but it would appear I have a bounty on my head on DU as a certain swarm has recently taken to alerting my non-offensive posts, my borderline posts, pretty much every single post I make in an attempt to use the jury system as a tool to have me banned.

I went from having a clean record for over a year to having 3 posts hidden in two days for comments that even a globe trotter referee could see were well within thew rules and not particularly offensive. My visit here then would seem to be the last refuge of a non-scoundrel.

Needless to say, I chose to avoid this rather transparent tactic here at least temporarily by adopting a new handle.

If you wish to avoid my fate there I suggest you do not ask questions of posters that have the ability to post over twenty hours a day and whose posts read a great deal like press releases. It was immediately after asking one such indefatigable poster why it simply refused to answer simple on topic questions regarding its post that this strange ability to offend with average posts no matter the topic of discussion suddenly appeared.

I refused to play and so I have not been tombstoned yet but neither do I feel as if posting even a simple hello would survive an alert, even if most of them do survive a jury, so I stopped posting as apparently demanded.
