    Maybe I can finally get that git on Twitter with the @AngryTechnician username who clearly never used his account for more than a week!

    The problem with the database of legal owners of posting names is that those who hide their identity behind a name can only be anonymous if they choose not to register their name... in which case someone else can register the name. It needs to have an ex-directory option!

    I know the other two Grumbledooks now ... I am taking most of the domains and it is first come, first served when it comes to Social Networks. I have Twitter, Bebo and a few others ... I missed out on FaceBook though.

    There's also the issue of those who post using a trademarked name... on edugeek Batman comes to mind, but I'm sure there are others if I think hard enough!

    My problem is that I use a different posting name depending on which website I'm on!

    Me too - I am unique on a couple but I bet there is more than one of me elsewhere!
