For instance, semi, you have quite a bit in common with a member who used to post here under the name Taciturn, but I certainly did not 'know' you were her. When it came up one time, I am 99% sure that you said that was not the case & that was that.
I let the whole whose who thing go...decided my response to a post is going to be the same regardless of who I am talking to...so it makes no difference what user name that person is currently using. JMHO
Joy, if I took something you said, twisted it, turned it completely around than the way you said it, & posted it on this forum as something Joy said, have I lied?
Bill does that, not just to me but to others too. When showing Bill what was originally said, & the way he twisted it, he will not answer why he did it or apologize.
I’ve never understood the fascination, or why anyone would have a problem with someone coming back with another ID. Who does it hurt? You are closely similar in your post with another person here too, but why would anyone care?
Jenn & I have a lot of thoughts on the same issues, does that mean I’m also Jenn? Of course not.
You have 2 friends on this forum that have been rude to me, especially one of them, in their remarks that I was Taciturn. No coming right out & asking, just snide hateful remarks, that I believe was only meant to hurt or put me down. When I answered your friends snide remarks as to if I was or wasn’t the former Taciturn, she refused to answer my question of how it was hurting her.
I don’t understand why or how another ID would affect someone else.
You're right on in that it should make no difference what user name that person is currently using.
