Copy Cats Answered

There are many of you out there that have clones, I came across several of them today.
I am making a big fuss over this because it annoys me, that people can't think of original names; so they have to copy other people, because they are popular.
Often you will find, or may well have seen, these 'fakes' have posted Instructables, but the original person has posted a gun, more than five times better than that of said cheat.
The few I have found so far include:

Trainman2001 - DarthTrainman
Dsman1 - Dsman195276 (or visa versa)
Killerk2, NOT-KILLERK - KILLERK
There are thousands for ironman69, although there was a film called The iron man - This could be a valid reason.

If you spot any other clones, inform me please.
I will eat them.

I don't think they are copycats as such - more wide-ups, since nobody is going to mistake "I_am_British" for "I_am_Canadian".

The problem copycats are the ones that use punctuation to change names, and copy the avatar (like "Do_not_turn_off_the_power." with the period, or "Kitman").

It means a person is referring to someone/making a reference to someone in his sentence. P.S: We have a " Be nice " policy. Don't say WTF. The F word is forbidden here.

Yeah, but he even admits that he abbreviated a swear word. So that means what he's trying to say is What the f***.

Wouldn't it be better to set the example?

If you follow the rules, then you are in a much better position to expect others to follow the rules.

there are those that swear without concern to the rules. Yes, there are, but those people are lowly jerks. You're not a low-class jerk are you? Of course you're not! So don't swear, even if you abbreviated it.

Yeah, not copycats, but you can't deny that both accounts were made just after I got well known with my Cannon, and then they both start bugging me. So they are associated with me, not just random Instructables-goers making an account for themselves.

I have to admit, that does sound like a fair point you have, as everyone is attracted to your canon. I can see why they bug you.

mepaiins dog toby came before mepain acctually, search knex, click recent, go to the last page and work your way up. He changed his name to ikill recently tho, because people were getting at him for being a clone when acctually he is not
