I don't know but there's a ThroughThinkandThing which spooks me out. I don't understand why though as its only a pretend name?

I did see and chat with Mycatisabastard the other day. It's a bit odd seeing her on the threads as I do double take at times.

But so far neither of us seems to be raving lunatic trolls so it doesn't really bother me.

Not as far as I know, hope you are not being trolled! If you have an identifying style then name changing would be pointless I think.

Mycats I was just coming to mention us!

I may have to change my name again to avoid confusion but yes, as neither of us seem particularly weird except for the cat thing then it's no biggie. I changed my name as someone changed theirs to something very similar to mine. Now I've done it to you.

It's a bit rude, if it's deliberate. Why not pm her and ask if she realises?

blush I totally thought you and the other Ego were the same person.

Never even noticed they were different usernames

My cats the biggest bastard wink

Egosumguisum looks very like Egosumquisum though, it's easy to tell between the bastard cats.

There's also a Cigarsofthepharoahs and a Cigarsofthepharaohs, which confused me until I worked out there were two of them.

Have I gone blind or are they not exactly the same name?!

Actually, my cats the biggest bastard (of a normal cat, not a main coon or tiger)grin

HerRoyalFattyness Fri 08-Jul-16 19:12:49

HerRoyalFattyness Fri 08-Jul-16 19:13:09

ego is the biggest ego of all though wink

Flouncy Fri 08-Jul-16 19:13:26

Its the last ao or oa combination on the cigars names.

NeedACleverNN Fri 08-Jul-16 19:13:52

Ah thanx HRF I was genuinely struggling there and I can see how easy it is to get confused

MackerelOfFact Fri 08-Jul-16 19:15:26

Well given that MNHQ churn out hundreds of user1275836893-type aliases which are virtually indistinguishable to anyone without a maths degree, I don't think they have a particular stance on this!

They are trying to sort out the user issue I know that much

But I don't think it's possible for a computer to say your user name is very similar to Xxxxx. Would you like to select a new one or carry on

HerRoyalFattyness Fri 08-Jul-16 19:17:04

derek I've noticed a couple of Derek's and been hmm on your behalf. We all know you're the only derek around these parts. grin
