Mel, funny how you referred to ELANZ rather than ELNAZ in this post...

Well, u had better be careful.
They might not pay u, if they think u are enjoying it.

James, if your real name is not Bozo, it should be. Shut up, for once and for all.

Elanz, tell us what presents u got.

Then ELANZ, as a first time poster, responds .

You should really be more careful Mel.

I agree with Purdy - this is definitely an issue for the Overlords. Elnaz posts, then Elanz posts as if they were Elnaz... Watson, there is mischief afoot. (Yup, love Sherlock Holmes.)

This matter will be brought to the attention of the admins.

Until the admins have checked everything, nobody is to reply to this thread. Any further comments would be deleted.

Hi Mel, I've researched the Elanz user and have inactivated the account. It was apparently created by another TP member. I have contacted that member to ask them not to do such things again, though I sincerely believe it was not done maliciously and was just for a bit of fun.

And Elnaz, in case you're reading this; I hope you had a happy birthday!

Finally, for those who believe that Mel=Elnaz , I can tell you that their IP addresses map to Germany and Iran respectively, just as would be expected. So, now we can put that conspiracy theory to bed Any good new ones?

Well I'm glad that one's sorted. How did Mel take it? ;)

I promise to say no more on this matter, although it's not difficult to get a fake IP address and and country of origin. Seriously, if I wanted to set one up I could do so in 5 minutes, and I don't work in IT.

I know you're kidding, but just to be sure; it wasn't Mel.

Yes, I realise that, but the odds of that being the case in this instance are really very small in my opinion.

Hmm, I'd better go check Sam's IP address. He may be trying to impersonate me!

Isnt being a fool, against the forum rules?
