DemocraticSPACE Scam Alert: Attempt to Mislead Voters in Peterborough Riding?

Someone else has created an account at DemocraticSPACE under the same name as mine ("Ann D") and is posting pro-Conservative opinions under that name.

So if you read something written by another "Ann D" about Peterborough Riding that doesn't sound at all like something I'd say -- for example that I support the opinions about the Peterborough Riding election outcome as expressed by this Conservative blogger -- odds are it's the Conservative "Ann D" who is responsible.

I don't suppose this could be yet another attempt to mislead voters in Peterborough Riding?

Nah. It's probably just that nasty plagiarism virus that's been going around. ("Hey, I think I'll borrow that name....")

Note: I'm not sure if my blog post will ever see the light of day (technical snafus and all that), so I thought I should cut and paste what I'm talking about right here. These are the comments in response to this thread (including my comment, which is awaiting moderation. See below.

UPDATE: My letter to DemocraticSPACE: I just realized that one of the comments I submitted to this thread a few weeks ago was replaced with a comment by the other Ann D. (I was orginally comment number 2. Now the other Ann D is comment number 2. Confused yet? I think that's the whole point of this.) So... Impersonation? Hacking? I'm not sure. But I've written this letter to DemocraticSPACE to ask them to look into the matter ASAP.

Thanks again, Greg. I really appreciate your help.

Sassy: Panic isn't quite the word I'd use. I simply needed to correct a major factual error. But I appreciate your concern.

We've taken care of it. No worries.

Conservative "Ann D" is in a panic, a LARGE PANIC.

I have already heard back from Greg Morrow. He's investigating. Talk about speedy and professional service. I'm very impressed.

Great minds think alike. :-) I just finished doing just that. Thanks for your support, Wayne.
