Should I Be Pissed Or Flattered?

Lately I’ve noticed a couple of nicks very similar to mine on the boards. One of them is only one letter away from my nickname and one is kind of a shortened version of what I call myself sometimes.

As I write this, I have a wry grin on my face and a twinkle in my eye. I’m not really pissed off, but I’m not really flattered either, and here’s my thinking on it: Since coming on board in December of 2001, I have posted enough to where y’all pretty much know my persona. That is, you know the kinds of things I might say or not say in a particular post, but not everybody does. For that reason it worries me a little that something might be said by one of the new Q’s that might be misconstrued as coming from me, and I might have to answer for it even though the post count, location, name and sign-on date might be different.

Having said that, though, some of y’all know me well enough to know that I can take a “Hey, Quasi! Take a chill-pill! It ain’t nothin’ but a thang!”, so go ahead and let me know your thoughts. You know I respect them.

And to the new Q’s: Welcome to SDMB.


That should be "since coming on board in december of 2000! Damn! I’m getting old faster than I thought! :D:D:D:D:D



Well, that deflects the rumor I was going to start about you cloning yourself… :smiley:

I noticed one of the names and it took a few seconds to figure out it wasn’t you. NOT what I need to deal with at my advanced age - being so easily confused anyway. So I vote neither pissed nor flattered - join me on the confused bench.

Well, Quasi, I know I’d be pretty annoyed if there were suddenly a Gorgon Leap, Morgon Reap, Sermon Keep, Gunning Jeep, Grinning Peep, Glurgy Creep, Gastro Seep, and Betty White’s Underpants.

[sub]Hey, waitaminnit …[/sub]

Your rage should burn with the fire of a couple of cardboard matches.

Dude, we know you.

Those other quasi-Quasi’s make me question the integrity of my personal reality construct, and you know how that’s a bitch to get back in order. I shudder to think how it must be, having to deal with it in first person.

How do you know that such people didn’t already have a ‘Quasi’ in their “internet name” before you? Like you’re the only one or something. Maybe they registered before having ever seen your nick.

better to be pissed off than to be pissed on…

sorry, had to do it :slight_smile:

You’re the one with the hump, right?


There’s hundreds of Quasimodems on the net. I don’t lay claim to the name exclusively, ParentalAdvisory. I’ve used the name since I came online in 1994, but I sure can’t claim it as my own and am not trying to do so. Sorry I set you off. :smiley:

My concern is what I posted originally: I don’t want anythinng attributed to me that I didn’t post. Your first and last sentences were the most helpful. The middle sentence proves you don’t know me.


Sorry, I didn’t mean to start anything. I misread.:wink:

No offense taken. :slight_smile:


Nah, there’ll be no mistaking.

You’re the cute one. :slight_smile:

Thanks, Y’all! :smiley:


hit my funny bone with that one!
