Name changed to this off the back of another thread a few weeks ago where I used the word Mortificado and my previous name had had Queen in it

Today I see someone else is now registered as TheQueenMortificado.

Wtf. It's myyyyy name. Aren't there rules around plagiarism like this???

TQM if you see this come forward and explain yourself!

It's possible it's just an error and e.g. the user doesn't know they've taken a name so close to yours. I'd have a word with MNHQ. They might feel moved to contact them to suggest, kindly, that they might wish to alter their name a tad.

Disconcerting, though, isn't it?

Ruuuuuuude. shock

Who are you and what are you doing????

You're so weird!

MabelWotsits Wed 23-Nov-16 20:41:54

Nope, no rules. Just a coincidence probably. The site is so big now that there is bound to be near names cropping up.

When was their first post under that name? You could message if you feel that bothered but some people refuse to change.

No mistake, it's too unique to be a mistake!

MabelWotsits Wed 23-Nov-16 20:42:59

That's NOT the queen grin

I name changed once, took me about fifteen attempts to get an unused name, PIA it was.

I got name trolled once under a previous NN

Was quite amazing

No one knew it wasn't me until I pointed it out. They started a thread about Ben Stiller of all things. Or was it Adam Sandler..can't remember now

QueenMortificado Wed 23-Nov-16 20:49:06

Thank you Toffee, yes that's me smile

I have seen millions of Queen names (and previously had one myself) but who the bloody hell has used the word Mortificado for years, let alone putting them both together?!

ChardonnayKnickertonSmythe Wed 23-Nov-16 20:50:48

Sorry, Sauv...

QueenMortoficado Wed 23-Nov-16 20:50:56
