OT: It's confession time - how many of you have created more than one account on MGoBlog?
let me help you with that...
I have Crowpuppy and Moleskyn.
I created lilbthebasedgod. It was deleted after one day
My first account was banned after I quickly made a thread saying we should fire Rich Rod after the Freep allegations came out...I've behaved since then.
Behaved? Seems like you wasted your talents of seeing into the future.
No, I'm Brian. And so is my wife.
I'm Emmitt Smith
I love your work, Emmitt. Why aren't you on ESPN anymore?
I haven't. And put me on record as saying that it is pretty obvious that MJ14 is NOT Coach Brown -- I think MJ14 is just someone who wants to suck up to CB in hopes of being privy to CB's "inside information" (if he has any).
-Says MJ14's other account
Suck up to him? I was just trying to do the man a favor. He asked for help and I proceeded to say I would help him. I met him here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2234212961/?fref=ts
He asked if someone would help him and I volunteered to do that. Pretty simple to understand, but you guys just love a fake conspiracy right? I'm not some fake person. My name is Matt(hence the M in the MJ) my favorite number is 14. I attend Indiana University. Anyone who doesn't believe so is more than welcome to come visit me here in Bloomington and find out.
I knew it!
I'd just like to thank you again for jinxing the team...no T-shirt in the world was worth that
/s (that's how its done right?)
i miss him
His commentary was biting and topical.
He always seemed to post at just the right time, too.
He certainly had a way with words.
He's still around, I noticed that he downvoted a thread a couple days ago.
I ain't got time for screwing around with no false identities... I am hungry though...In the Army I learned to be the McGyver of cooking. If you bring me a piece of bread, cabbage, coconut, mustard greens, pigs feet, pine cones and a woodpecker, I’ll make you a good chicken pot pie
Is that a fact Jack?
Ladies & Gentlemen, Si Robertson has joined the board. Welcome, Si.
What's the woodpecker for?
you don't want to know.
tastes just like chicken. I know that may seem odd to some of y'all, but I'm like an owl...I don't give a hoot
So, it's pecker pot pie?
You can't afford it.
its for doing woodpussies.....
(obviously this was in response to the question "whats the woodpecker for?")
My psychiatrist diagnosed me as having multiple personalities. He said he frowned upon my creating of two accounts.
Inspired by a few of the obvious fake accounts, I had one called CoachSpeak where I gave very vague and generic input on threads while coming off as gruff but likeable. I thought it would be a much funnier fake account than it was. I maybe posted 4 times.
Brian is The_Knowledge.
Yeah, but it's Brian in the future, right? I mean, that probably warrants separate accounts.
This is my second account. The first one had about 300 points and I could post. Mmmmm those were the days.
Last fall we had a baby, started a business, my dad died and other stuff...I still can't believe that all happened. Anyways, I forgot my password and decided to start a new profile.
I'm an uncle and I drink. Hence, Drunk Uncle.
I can get you back into your old account. I still have magical mod powers.
Seth, Seth! BiSB is still trying to be a moderator! Seth! He quit, remember? No fair!
Nice avatar you have there. It'd be a shame if something happened to it:
If I were to come back and my avatar was a pink horse, I will leave it for a week.
I told you, Bullrog has lots and lots of powers.
A mod avatar fight between you two would be reminiscent of Obi Wan vs Vader.
I thought you were an SNL reference. Google it if you want inspiration.
My real name is Catfish
I have an alternate persona that I use to provide actual insightful, useful, intellectual growth-type posts for the rest of you. I'll keep it a secret for now(!)
...the first got locked up because I was relentless in my dislike of a particular coach (and probably not who you think). After a while I couldn't stand being away so I create new account and now just avoid the unpleasant subject.
Well, my first hunch was Coach Brown, but since you said it's "probably not who I think"... I guess that means I must go with my second hunch, which would be Rich Rod.
I think it would be interesting to analyze the population of Boliva (as well as mgoaccount creations) during Rich Rod's regime. I'm going to go out on a limb and say... records were broken.
I created this one when some goober put up a thread asking if anyone thought Desmond Howard spends his free time on the MGoBoard:
Of being Desmond Howard once. In a mean way if that makes any sense.
under LennayKekua, but I've been a little preoccupied to sign in under that one ever since
But then I realized my user name was extremely stupid and immediately created this one. Now, I am not so sure about Dutch either.
But, I am Craig James in real life.
No....why do you ask?
BTW....that "MGrowOldisthebestposterever" guy may be a newbie but is he fantastic or what? I mean his insight, his wit, his absolute increadible knowledge of all things Michigan....well I just cant wait to see him post something so I can upvote it.
...and you're looking at it.
My reasons for only having one are three fold: A. Too lazy to create another. 2. One is all I really need to get my point across. And D. I didn't want to subject the MGoCommunity to any more of me than I already have.
but this is Michigan. None of that nonsense.
I created the TPeezy account.
How can you have more than one name? It is tied to your e-mail and your e-mail only lets you have one.
Very subtle humor there, Herm.
I'm really curious as to what you're other account is.
This is my only account.
No one liked the real me here before.
hmm, well lets think. Who is a former poster that liked to pretend he was someone else and was forced off the site?
What's up with your point total? I must have missed something awesome.
I hate this thread.
Cheer up guy! It's a new day full of opportunity!
I'm just teasing. But I may have to hold you responsible for contributing to the deliquency at some later date . . .
What delinquency? i have no idea what you're talking about.
...then I read the comments
I was once "Blue in South Bend," but I got banned for my views on Vietnam. Also I was stealing projectors.
Vietnam is not a member of the Big Ten no matter how many times you say it is.
RollDamnTide is my only account.
I was RDT until someone thought that WIAB was the same person so I created another account to prove this theory was true, only to find out I was never RDT to begin with.
Wow. Nearly 50 posts in and there was no RDT reference. But then, instants before you posted, you were beaten to the punch.
this has been a bad week for me! l
Nope. I've thought about it, but one account is all I need.
...and this lamp.
...and this paddle ball.
When I first came here I told the board that I had seen Dan O'Brien in high school - up close (not-Magnus style) and that he looked like a chewed up wad of bublle gum and that I thought he was carrying about 50 lb of bad weight at the very least. I questioned whether he had the work ethic to be successful.
I got flamed hard and I am not sure, but I think I may have even gotten the banhammer (it came out early and often back in them days). The WLA had a field day. Needless to say I assumed another name - my current handle - and began making whitty comments and dick jokes around the time of Pryor and the conflict with the Buckeyes. Like me or hate me I been around a while and will likely be around for a while longer on this mortal coil.
Completely unprovoked, yet taking shots at me once again...
Well, when you have,: 26363, people know you and you're an easy target.
I just think it's funny that he thinks about me so much.
Maybe he has a thing for black defensive lineman who play for the Eagles?
Hey, different strokes for different folks... I'm not going to judge.
By my quick count, about 15 out of His Dudeness's last 19 comments have been directed at me. Needless to say, they're not very flattering. I haven't been that obsessed about anyone since I used to daydream about Kelly Kapowski while watching those reruns on TBS.
His Dudeness takes unprovoked shots at you, you take unprovoked shots at me, I take shots at Section 1, Section 1 takes shots at the Free Press, the Free Press takes shots at Rich Rod, Rich Rod takes unprovoked shots at Michigan, Michigan takes unprovoked shots at tiny molecules using high-powered lasers, microscopic molecules take shots at quantum mechanics, quantum mechanics take shots at our best scientific theories, science takes shots at religion, and God hates His Dudeness. It's a great big cycle.
Quantum mechanics deserves it, though. That shit is ridiculous.
Yeah but how many millions/billions of supersmall particles have we observed, and not even one has been a Higgs-Boson yet? And as soon as you try to neg one for it, it just flashes out of existence. Wanna know what's in a singularity? A major asshole that's what.
Honestly of all those in the cycle RR annoys me the most, even though he's probably got the biggest beef.
You just can't get this type of discussion anywhere but mgoblog. You guys are the only people who say what I'm thinking, which is simultaneously creepy, calming and cathartic.
It is ridiculous, and yet simultaneously not ridiculous, and there is no way to know whether it will remain ridiculous from one moment to the next.
Yeah, yeah ...
Unprovoked shots at you, shots at me. Everybody kills people.
I'm Magnus too.
Magnus is His Dudeness?
His Dudeness is Magnus?
IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW.
I warned you, Dude. I've been pretty lenient up until now but its gotta stop. I know taking your points doesn't have real-world implications but c'mon, man. It'd be so lame to have to get Brian and Seth involved. Just be cool, Honey Bunny.
HOW IS THAT A PERSONAL ATTACK? It is literally what Magnus does.
It had nothing to do with the story and I threw it in as a joke AND IT IS THE TRUTH. Jesus what the hell is going on here? What do you want this online commenting community to be exactly?
John W. Commentor: I believe Michigan is great
Jane L. Commenetor: I too believe that Michigan is great.
John W. Commentor: I think Hoke may have gotten a bad haircut.
Jane L. Commentor: I am going to hunt you down and destroy your family so that you may never extend your genes freely amongst the masses.
This is a fucking joke.
I know what it was. Its was said in jest but couple that with the previous discussion and your position and it was clearly an attack. Magnus said he thinks is was funny but its not. I've liked you for a long time and I've been on your side on lots of discussions. But its not cool to Magnus. Did I overreact? Maybe so. That's why your points are coming back next month.
Thanks for having a sense of humor (I think).
I REALLY don't have a dog in this fight. But your judgment lately (this obvious overreaction, the two-hour NO TE'O nonsense) has been sort of iffy.
On the other hand, you prefer BF3 to CoD, which is good judgment. Lot of ins and outs here.
Agreed, I've spent almost three weeks being unable to ineffectively inform people of how idiotic their comments are via downvoting. It really takes away your masculinity when you can't mark everything you disagree with as trolling.
Thanks for your feedback. My tolerance lately has been sort of iffy and I've contemplated going all BiSB up in this b-tch several times. I sat through the last thread with Dude and Rager ganging up on Magnus over and over and it pissed me off. This most recent one put me over the edge at least with respect to this issue. But maybe this is my Waterloo.
I find your use of "ganging up" ... ... disturbing.
You can't leave the ship. Someone has to steer this thing.
/says the guy who bribed his way onto one of the first lifeboats with like 8 people on it.
Actually, JGB is pretty damn good. Better than me, most definitely. Fresh meat. LOL
This could have been us (you and me):
Not that my opinion means anything, but I think you and BiSB are both good mods. It's a big forum and I'm sure it's a (typically) thankless and (occasionally) stressful job. Don't leave, maybe take a step back. IMO Bolivia is for McFarlin and his ilk and PEOPLE WHO JOKE ABOUT KOZAN AND DIGGS IT WAS NEVER FUNNY, not benevolent goofballs like Herm and His Dudeness.
Man fuck this bitch I work on Wall Street dammit I'll rip on Magnus's lazy ass all I want he's just some dood creepin' and probably only coaches for 2 hours a day and I'm unappreciative of all he does so I'll make fun of him on the internet while simultaneously reminding people how much money I make on Wall Street.
Oops, sorry, I thought I was signed in as my other handle, Mr. Rager. disregard the above.
I honestly don't get why we need mods to begin with. Let people say what they want to say. What are the real-life implications of His Dudeness taking a shot at Magnus? If an anonymous person has issues about what another anonymous poster says about them on the internet, they need to rethink some things. I just don't get it...
(not saying Magnus or His Dudeness feel this way - just using them as examples)
I'm pretty sure lawlessness isn't the answer.
But what do I know. I'm Roman, direct descendant of Caesar.
There are no real life implications for me, but as far as the board goes, it's not a good environment when you have people insulting each other left and right. It can create a lot of clutter on the board. In some ways, the mods here are the difference between discussing Michigan football on Twitter/Facebook comments on newspaper sites and discussing Michigan football on message boards. There are mods on almost every Michigan discussion board (Wolverine Nation, GoBlueWolverine, The Wolverine, etc.) and Brian chose this over Haloscan (for numerous reasons, not just moderating), so there must be a reason for it.
The blog is pretty heavily intertwined with the university at this point, and there is a chance if things spiral out of control that Brian could lose access.
Not a good description. We have a defined involvement as an independent media. If I ever call someone within Fort Schembechler I use the same phone numbers that they university makes publicly available. All press conferences are televised and they even publish transcripts of them. Media access can be granted or taken away, and while we wouldn't screw that up for something stupid (like for example letting a false rumor about a player stand on the board), they know we're not going to change our coverage for them.
I've stuck with this one the whole time despite spending many months in Bolivia.
My other account is M-Wolverine.
So I can give myself five points every time I post.
[edit:] sorry it took so long to get to five points on this one guys. it really is difficult remembering all those passwords sometimes..
I'll admit, I've made a few other accounts. 0517 of them actually. You'll never guess what they were named, though.
Come talk to me when you have made another 965. Do the math... Braylon wouldn't let me have the #1...
This is actually my second account. When I first found the site, I joined under my real name, cause that's what I thought everyone did. I quickly realized my mistake, never posted, and then signed up under Lionsfan.
My other one is still probably in the system too
I would rather use my social security number for an account name than admit to being a Lions fan.
if em0 still hangs around here as a respectable MGoCitizen. I suppose I could set a trap and start a thread entitled "Anyone have a projected depth chart for 2016?" and see who appears.
do it i miss that fucktard... he had some of the most glorious meltdown this board has ever seen...
This is my only one, although I think there's a guy called Blue Badger who hangs around these parts ... sometimes I wonder if I'm also him. Like if maybe I'm the modern Wisconsin equivalent of a werewolf - I get mind-shatteringly drunk on PBR & brandy old fashioneds, take on a new personality, sign onto an alternate Mgoblog account I was never even aware I made, & post insightful things with no memory of ever doing so. I mean, it's possible.
There is some satisfaction getting out of Bolivia on your own.
Making a new account is for pussies!
To be fair I think plenty of us contributed to your, "evacuate Bolivia" movement.
I have hundreds. Sometimes entire threads are me arguing with myself. About half the comments on this thread are mine.
I don't have multiple accounts anymore. I take medicine for that now.
I will admit.. I NEARLY created a new account just minutes after I created my first one due to the fact that I couldn't figure out why in the world I created a username that not only states my real name but also begins with "Corky;" I have no idea what I was on at the time.
I'm committed, though, and I plan on riding this thing to the end.
I am Taco Pants.
I wish I came up with TPryor... but I did not.
I pondered an alt back during the RR and anti-RR split camps. I was thinking of using it solely to comment on the coaching since it seemed like the moment you went public in one camp, people from the other camp instantly negbombed all future posts. In the end I sucked it up and just went on record with this account and nothing bad happened.
I'm pretty sure a number of people do have multiple accounts and use one just for touchy subjects, but they do a poor job disguising their writing style and it is easy to link the accounts together.
Were you going to be Korean and tell stories about your spouse's weird ginger family?
I don't remember pro-RR stuff getting downvoted here. Ever. Just like pro-Beilien stuff pretty much never gets downvoted here. Anti-Beilien stuff is generally downvoted into invisibility almost immediately.
For better or for worse, this site is very pro CurrentHeadCoach.
Allintime23. I matter not one bit. I don't even know how many mgo points I have. I'm here for the info the perspective and the humor. I am also an alcoholic and fall hard in nights like last. I only have one profile.
I want to know who Buzz Killington's alter ego is.
I am known as Hugh Jass - but I also go by the name Hugh Jaweener as well.....I'm just saying
I've been using this account from the start - no need to have an alt.
I know a lot of you have wondered, and it's true: I am also SirJack (the first). At one point comments I added under that handle would not appear, and I felt bad depriving everyone of my comments so I created another account.
We are all grateful that you did.
Sir Jack too. Most excellent.
Ok ok I admit it. I am not one of the Wu Tang Clan members even though my avatar is their picture from the racial draft. Woooo weight off my shoulders lifted.
Heck, I spend too much time on here with only one sign-in as it is.
I've been around for a long time but I'm not a Lloyd Carr fan so I quit posting at that time and didn't post forever and since I changed e-mails etc so I didn't bother trying to find my other account.
I've learned to keep quiet when it comes to certain topics.
See, I did it the other way around and created an account which I hoped would speak collectively for an entire graduating class of one of the University Of Michigan's many schools and colleges. Why have multiple accounts for one person when one "person" can speak for "many"?
periods of extreme angst - 404 not found.
the real confession here is that every account in this thread is from the same person
avatar pic. Not because it's bad. But because it really turns me on. All of my personas get turned on by it. /s
I have had several "preachy" phases where I wanted to create another account to spread my supportive word. It has never been political, religous or what-have-you bad. It's always been a slap-happy kinda "support our boys," but I have never actually done it.
I probably never will either, but after last night's game, I really thought about it . . .
but an ILLUSION.
All you howdedodats are still under my control.
Just one account. But I'm willing to learn.
don't think I have an alter ego, but full disclosure; the day after the UTL game, I awoke next to my laptop in a pile of beer bottles, burnt roman candles and my dog's leavings and saw that I was logged in as Big Gay Heart. My wife walked in and freaked out so I just reacted and pulled the battery out. I still have no recollection of that night and to this day can't find the pants or the watch I was wearing.
We need a new thread to expand on this...
outing the other thread's posters may comment.
<kanye> There's a thousand yous and only one of me </kanye>
I'll come clean
I am THE_KNOWLEDGE
No alternate identities here. I've thought about it. I've also thought about killing my current username and starting over, with a username more appropriately Michigan themed and bland, along with some generic Michigan avatar. But in the end, I don't want to mess around with two identities on the board, so no second user for me. And I also can live with just being me, so no anonymous generic user name either.
your NSFSRK'sW post was one of my favorite moments in my time on the board. i always read your posts. don't change it up, or then i will have to start reading all the posts by people i don't recognize.
Agreed. I'm going to use the "NSFMrs.K" meme until the day I die.
I think you made an excellent choice for your avatar but what do i know.
I'm actually Kass' wife.
My first account had my name in it. Dumb. That's what happens when it's 2008. Amateur hour.
Also wish I hadn't taken a stupid gmail address instead of my real name. Now some douche has it. Great.
I personally want to know if I'm talking to a 18 year old kid or a 40 year old man. So with that in mind, not only do I only have one account, but that's my picture (obviously wearing the UM shirt) in my profile photograph, and my name represents my profession (I'm a strength coach). I am transparent and wouldn't say something on a board that I wouldn't say in real life.
Not mine, yours.
That's nice of you, but I still can't tell if you're 18 or 40 based solely on your teeny tiny avatar picture.
The point is the same that I'm not hiding who I am. I wish more people would use a picture of themselves in their profile. I respect their choice not to, but it would be nice to see who you're talking to.
I would use a picture of myself, except that I'm very very ugly.
I'd use a picture of myself, except I'm afraid I'd be negged / stereotyped for being a young, white, male.
Who knows, maybe you would, maybe you wouldn't, but that's kinda the point. Knowing who said a comment gives it context and helps a person better understand where they're coming from. For example I may use a different strategy when discussing topic with an 18 year old than I would a 30 year old or if it were a female versus a male, etc.
I'm a horse
I just tried to create another MGOBLOG account to answer this post but I was denied - apparently there is a limit of 3 per person and ...........
Nope, it's just me.
I made a new one because too many people out in the real world (that place with all the sunlight) knew who I was on mgoblog. I prefer to be stupid in complete anonymity
Just kidding, this has been and always will be my only MGo account.
My opinion on mutiple accounts:
I was Maize and Brew For Me and I was the one that quadrupled posted "Hoke has changed the tide".
Wait - you did that and then changed your name? Why would you want to hide one of the brightest moments in blogging history? Go back. Now!
I lost my password
I am BILG, BILG is me. BAAAAAHHHH!!!!
I have a second gimmick account I dust off on occassion
I also started a revived 00goblue00 account but I don't think enough people remembered her for it to be funny
this account. But I do know that Herm and Chet are the same person. Yup.
I have another more famous account, but I'll let you figure it out.
nope, if I haven't had my account deleted by now its not going to happen, no need for another account to be a jackass with
This place needs a paywall.
I waste enough time here as it is under one name.
I still think it's funny any time someone thinks I'm an actual Auburn fan.
I only did it because I thought it would be funny to put a post as WarDamnEagle in the thread where RDT was exposed, but if something Auburn related comes up on here, I'll post from it.
Where is King of Belch?
I was Dark Blue, if someone wanted to uncave that account, that would be rad
an account for each one of my personalities. and all of them created today just for this thread.
