View Full Version : Misattributed Comments
05-05-2009, 09:22 PM
I found a comment about a quote the other day that was attributed to me. The problem is, I didn't write it and I'm sure that no one else in my house wrote it either, because the wording doesn't fit anyone here. Fortunately, in this case, I agree with what was said, but what if this happens again and I don't? Has anyone else ever had a problem like this? I know that the obvious answer is that one of the 6 did it, but the language was not any of their styles. There was a word used that none of us ever uses - not offensive, I just don't think they even know the word. I've never heard them use it. In case you're curious, the word is 'flunkie'.

Probably just a glitch (one of many). I wouldn't worry... I don't think most people bother to read the comments anyway :)

Hi momof6 -
It looks like this comment was added March 1st of this year at 2:35am Eastern time. Is that a normal time for you to be playing?
I don't see any problems in the code that would suggest usernames are getting misattributed, so I'm not entirely sure why this would happen. Are you 100% sure no one using your computer or username entered this? (There are quite a few other comments added under the name "momof6".)
Has anyone else noticed this happening?

It's funny that you say quite a few quotes. I don't leave quotes very often. The time of the other quote is not abnormal for me, since March 1 is Sat nite/Sun morn. I just hope that none of these many quotes are offensive or anything I morally or ethically disagree with. Oh, well. (and no, none of my 6 would be up at 2:30)

Luckily, I have not had anything happen like Momof but I have noticed that some of my comments are missing which I know I left...and they were not offensive or profane as far as I think...so there is a problem somewhere.
Hope that helps...:confused:
There is a momov6???? under the members list.

If you have seen any comments with my userid that do not seem to be very intelligent and well thought out, likewise they were written by someone else and misattributed to me. Damn computer glitch!

Most of your comments are not well thought out so how could we tell the difference;);)
Needless to say I am just pulling your leg...

Pootie did some great detective work and found that there is a registered player with the userid momov6. That's probably who's left the comments that seem to be mine. Great job Pootie~ You're the best!!

You are quite welcome, Momof6:)

Nice picture, poots. I really like that one.

I, for one, am super relieved that this mega-crisis has been resolved :rolleyes:
Let the gaming continue! :D
