Samebook

Some friends of mine linked me to a site called lamebook earlier this year, and since then, it's been on my "check at least once a day" list. It's a simple blog whose posts are screen grabs of stupid or funny Facebook posts.

After some time, I started posting in the comments section. Because that's what it's for. I decided to post anonymously to avoid the cult of personality that seems to be feature of my patronage of other forums. This didn't work, however, and people started posting using my username (Boz). I tried to identify myself by posting this LiveJournal in the Website box, thinking that they probably wouldn't want to promote someone else's LiveJournal, but that didn't work either. Now, it's got to the stage where at least three people (possibly more) are posting in the comments section as Boz, and linking to this site (Hey guys! Keep up the good work!) I don't know who any of these people are, but it's nice to know that they think so much of my contributions that it's worth their while to imitate me.

For instance, in the comments section of Best Friends Forever, comments 2, 3, 5, 12, 51, 65, 66, 68, 70, and 74 were not made by me. In the comments section of Mac 'N' Sleaze, comments 4, 18, 20, 22, 24, 28, 29, 42, 43, 46, 47, 50, 51, 52, 53, 55, 56, 57, 59, 60, 62, 64, 65, 67 and 69 were not made by me. That's just two lamebook entries; there are many, many more.

If lamebook people are irritated by this whole thing, I really don't know what I can do about it. Sorry, I guess? I have a suspicion that asking them to stop will only encourage them. Maybe it's best to just ignore all their posts. To be honest, it doesn't really matter, and if you're getting annoyed over a bunch of people pretending to be me in the comments section of humour website, you probably have problems beyond my ability to help you.

Nevertheless, workable suggestions welcome.
