Drawing the line

There are three entries in my friends list that are RSS feeds from Google or Technorati blog searches for Tron Guy, either words or links to the site. Usually, they just point out entries folks make pointing to the page, and I like to drop in on them and make a relevant comment or two.

This morning, though, one of them turned up an entry in this MySpace user's blog. (Warning: The profile behind that link is full of sounds, movies, graphics, and lots of other junk. The blog entry in question is NSFW.)

I decided, early on, that folks satirizing me or just saying nasty things about me is something I'm going to have to live with, and trying to suppress it would be highly counterproductive. However, pretending to be me - even a little bit - is not acceptable. That's where I draw the line. This character is way over it. That he's posting content under my identity that is at best offensive is icing on the cake.

I've sent MySpace a complaint asking that they either make him change the page so it's obvious he's not claiming to be me, or else delete the account. Their complaint process includes a requirement for a picture holding up a handwritten sign; I'll be making that later today (and, for obvious reasons, won't be posting it).
