Who is waterwren and why would you get banned?

Waterwren was/is apparently another poster. that much I know. But many boards will ban folks for things like posting under someone else's account, ect. Normally you can't post on many boards with out a password so presumably if you are posting under another name you are either a dual account ( a no-no on many boards) or have stolen a password.
  I have done neither, have never met anyone on this board - but do post from several public networks  ( school, and the public libraries being the two biggest.)
 I am really weirded out that this happened.

How would you know that you don't share her attitudes if you have never seen her?

--- End quote ---

because I have never met her, and never even seen her online.  I can read her with out "seeing" her, if you know what I mean

No, I'm afraid I don't know what you mean.  I mean none of us are actually "seeing" each other (unless there's some cool threads I'm missing out on!) Anyway though, good luck getting this all straightened out!

For whatever it's worth, snowdragon, in my thread you are only "snowdragon". I don't see any posts from waterwren in that thread.

POD to Zilla. Honestly, if there's just a forum glitch, you shouldn't have to worry. I'm sure this has happened before and it all gets straightened out and nobody gets banned.
