Some douchebag is impersonating me on Reddit; r/mr mods won’t ban him

So some douchebag is impersonating me on Reddit. I post as manboobz. He (or she) posts as manboobz_. (That is, with a little underscore at the end.) Luckily most of the faux-manboobz’ comments are fairly easy to tell from mine — this is not someone with a great sense of subtlety — so at least some of the regulars have figured out that this bonehead is not actually me. Not all of them, unfortunately.

As impersonating someone else is a violation of Reddit’s rules, and an asshole move to boot, I politely asked the Men’s Rights subreddit’s mods to ban the faux-me. Here was the response:

Stay classy, AnnArchist!

Hmm, I like it! AnnArchist’s response works in so many contexts:

“Will you stop posting images of women being beaten?”

“Not a chance.”

“Would you please acknowledge that women are humans?”

“Not a chance.”

“Is there a possibility that you MRAs will do something to substantively help men and boys at some point?”

“Not a chance.”

This person is not actually you, David? Say it ain’t so. :p

Decency from the MRM? Why would you expect that? XD

Aw, crap. What a lot of circular conversations you’re having. I wonder if underscore’s ISP will also turn out to be somewhere near BU? That fine young thing has a nasty habit of stalking writers he doesn’t like, and inept sockpuppetry. Under scoring all the way around.
Any chance the Reddit ubermods will take notice, despite their hands-off policies?

Wait, there’s a HISTORY of this kind of crap? With one particular person?

Oh, boy.

Yeah, MRAL’s internet-shadowed Hugo Schwyzer in the past, and sent him harassing (anti-Semitic, IIRC) emails in the past.

@felixBC: Bitch please, Dad 2 Boys is one of my favorite sockpuppets of all time! And since it’s one of MRAL’s socks you know it’s got a creamy filling. ;D

Apparently some intrepid MRA realized they were never going to be able to make you look bad if they were only allowed to use your actual words.

I think a lot of the people acting like it was really you were just jerking your chain, though. They can’t really be THAT stupid.

…can they?

I’m pretty sure they can indeed be that stupid, Holly

No, surely they’ve hit rock bottom this time!

AnnArchist overlooking Reddit’s rules? Who’d’ve thunk it! He seems like such a nice guy otherwise.

And I like to think that MRAL would be a way better impostor of manboobz. I guess I just have a little pride in our trolls. @Voip: MRAL specifically denied the anti-semitic stuff, but he affirmed the misogynistic stuff.

Could be DKM; he’s racist, but he’s too proud to sockpuppet much…hmmm…eoghan then, most likely.

@katz: Is the sockpuppet signing off with “PEACE AND VAGINAS!”? If not, not DKM. 😀

manboobz_ totally sounds like MRAL’s tired shit, especially with the jerking off references.

Mags would be my second guess.

(votes for NWO just to be contrary)

(also because he is zir FAVORITE)

(he shows such dedication)

(he might not be a good troll, but you know he’ll be out there in the troll trenches, talking about VAWA and flouridation. Sheer stubborness!)

@David: For one, you don’t have exclusive rights to use “Manboobz”, there are countless usernames that are all similar to each other and those people don’t try and demand the other names be banned.

Second, a lot of your articles are taken straight from r/mr and mocked. Why would the mods there concede anything to you? I am surprised you just got “Not a chance”. If I ran a site and someone asked this of me after mocking me and my articles, I would tell them to screw. Why would I treat that person with any respect, when I haven’t gotten any from them.

Third, why do you expect other people to defend your reputation? That is your job, not theirs.

Lastly, I am not knocking you because you attempted to get them to ban the “manboobz_” name. It doesn’t really hurt to ask. I am knocking you for shifting your responsibilities on to the mods at r/mr and expecting you to get your way when all you have done is mocked them. And for complaining about it in this post.

But Brandon, how does this impact your life? It’s not a real thread until we carefully consider your personal circumstances and no others. *clasps hands under chin, gazes at Brandon attentively*

Brandon apparently missed the bit where it said, “As impersonating someone else is a violation of Reddit’s rules…”
