My name is not Tom Stanley, but the system seems to disagree? - 12/18/2012
I'm not making this up. If you go to my hubpage

http://hub.webring.org/user/minimalism

you will find a thumbnail of a face that doesn't look much like mine, laying atop the black square that is my own icon, and the face belongs to somebody named Tom Stanley. Is this because I responded to a repost of something posted by Tom Stanley?

I'd just like to be very sure that I'm not on the verge of losing my account because of a case of mistaken identity.

All is good. YOUR name is Ex Nihilo, right? The owner of the very dark box which is your icon. The Stanley one is there - in very small form - because you did reply to a post that person made. It's like automatically including a citation to the source so you can't be accused of plagiarism :)

"YOUR name is Ex Nihilo, right?"

That would be my screen name, yes.

"The owner of the very dark box which is your icon."

Yes, the ultimate in minimalism, short of the null set. :)

"It's like automatically including a citation to the source so you can't be accused of plagiarism :)"

Very good, then. It takes getting used to, but it does get a needed job done, doesn't it? Just being careful. I've heard from people who have had sites hijacked at other providers, and while I've tried to be careful about choosing secure passwords everywhere I go, some people online are really good at being bad guys, so I was a little worried.

Thank you for putting my mind at ease.
