    RoD Stands for something??

    I don't know why, I just did a search for all posts made by RoD (it's 2 in the morning and i'm really screwed up right now), but I found that it said some threads he made were under the name: Ride -or- Die.....but I didn't search for Ride -or- Die, I searched RoD...how does that work? Did he change his screen name...? I didn't think you could do that. And it never occurred to me that RoD stood for something, I just thought that was his real name.

    RoD obviously stands for "Reocurring Overload of Death-SPAM"

    (Yes, he used to be called "Ride-or-Die")
    The world is waiting. I must leave you now.

    His account name was changed. It is done rarely on special request., it was Ride or Die

    I'm just wondering how it came up with results of his other name? I'm assuming when you search for all posts by a particular user, it finds that user's ID and then proceeds to find all of the posts made by that user's ID, not their username (as an ID would be theoretically much faster to search for)?

    Well... it's because your account is tied to an ID number, not your screenname, so when you do a search on a name, it looks at the ID, and then you get all the results tied to that ID. (Or at least that's what I assume happens)

    Run or Die or something like that. It was his name in Counterstrike or something like that.


    EDIT:

    Sorry about that, Cheez. I missed Kermi's post.

    I realize it's difficult to read all 9 replies up to the point where you post, but try a little harder in the future, k?

    No, it's because of the UID, dummy.
