Wow now that's really intelligent. I have 22 "messages" but I have to wait five minutes to answer any of them. And some are dated yesterday on stories athat are long off the front page and unlikely to get any comments except from "teh slashdot message center".
Hmm, either I impressed somebody, or pissed them off. So I click, and damned if my head didn't asplode.

After finding a funnel and putting my brains back inside my head I realized what had happened.
I have a Doppelgänger.
I had one of these back in my days at K5 too- someone there (I always suspected my underaged nemesis "nigga", who was eventually banned from the site) of registering "mcgrevv".
I suspect that it's the same AC who replies to every comment I make that has an on-topic link to these journals with "wank wank" or some variation thereof.
And I thought I had no life! Of course, I said something similar back in '03 in loser+.5 when I said "If so, I must be a loser among losers." A character named "bunny vomit" replied
Oh please! You actually *go out*.
Offtopic, but today's featured article at uncyclopedia is the Turing Duck Test, an assay developed by Alan Turing to determine whether a subject is a human or a duck. As one of the very, very few slashdotters who think that the idea that computers may become sentient is laughable, I was of course amused.
