Thread Name: ADD: Plastic (Shel Silverstein)
Subject: Confusingly similar user names
Serious thread creep: I'm surprised that Mudcat allows a new member to register with a username identical to that of an established member -- did that really happen with Bert and Bert?
We try to limit confusion in that area, but confusion sometimes does happen. If somebody new registers with a name that is bothersomely close to yours, please let me know and I'll try to work something out. The "new bert" situation arose before we identified unregistered users as Guests. "New Bert" was not a registered member.
