I was just chuckling to myself recently with all this fake account stuff in the media.  It seems like this is old news in the top spinning world.  I remember when we had a guy running around the forum under the name Lug Ditka.  He was crazy, wild and mean.  When was that....ten years ago?  15 years ago?  More?  Was it after the buttons and string board?  What was the board name that Greg ran?  And who was that Lug Ditka?

That was before my time here and before my time in skill toys.

I do use trackable accounts on sites I don't trust. As I expect, those privacy and "we will protect your information" policies area total load of crap as I see these accounts receiving spam from all over.

At least here I don't have to worry about that sort of garbage. Here is safe.

What I will say is "when you open up the internet to the general public... you get some really strange stuff!"

The true Lug was a mean guy who had an accomplice who had a top called Black Mariah. The impersonator on the board, I believe, was a Lutheran Pastor who played tops. Who could he be?  ::)
