I've Been Spoofed! The 'Mitch Wagner' Posting In The Second Citizen Forums Isn't Me

A friend from Second Life IM'd me this evening, wanting to know if I posted messages to the Second Citizen forums saying how much I hate "newbs." Because I am always alert, I responded: "Huh?"

A friend from Second Life IM'd me this evening, wanting to know if I posted messages to the Second Citizen forums saying how much I hate "newbs." Because I am always alert, I responded: "Huh?"

She pointed me to this thread where someone signing his name as "Mitch Wagner" writes about how he hates newbs.

Second Citizen is a forum for discussion of Second Life.

This thread is better. "Mitch Wagner" does a decent parody of my writing and observes (correctly) that registering for the Second Citizen is difficult.

What do you think? Have you ever been spoofed on a discussion forum? How did you feel about it? Leave a message below and let us know!
