Can I be Napoleon Hill, Zig Ziglar, John Taylor or Paul Myers?
Earlier today I was perusing a thread when I came across a reply from a member using the name of a famous author as his/her "User Name".
Since the author passed away in 1996 it's not too probable it is actually that person posting in the thread.
As a reader/owner of several of the author's books I immediately noticed a difference in writing style as used by the poster and the late author. Maybe death causes that?
Obviously I have nothing against using a name --in some situations-- other than one's own for forum posts. I have no reason to think the person using the name is doing so for any reason other than admiration of the late author's works.
Quite possibly he thinks it will garner him, or her, a bit of additional attention. Quite a few people looked at his/her profile. One even posted a reference to the real person's Wikipedia page--with a question mark appended.
In any event I, Nahm D. Plume, think it is a rather tacky way to gain attention.
What do you think?
