    Not really.
    I'm a regular subscriber to 5 forums. I use the usenet extensively on several groups and yet a few more private nntp groups. I'm a member of two organizations and my email box is a meeting place with a lot of people from around the world.

    Now... if I see someone with the names mario, marfig, mario f. or krugar, do you really think I will bother myself letting all these people know?

    Be real. If someone one day asks you if you are that person, you know what to answer. That's the direction you should take. Not the other way around.

    And one more thing... no one stole your name, ok. It's not yours.

    Hmm, I can't understand why Elysia would object, but I'm even less certain why that would matter to me.

    If you are one, be careful of this guy.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    Haha, almost fell off my chair!

    Makes me wonder if you didn't just 'invent' him for a laugh

    You can get this screenname-- "kryptkat_the_original" . So people get to know that you r the original one and the other is duplicate.
