"Addicted to Identity Finding Syndrome"

It comes to my attention that some people like to try and guess other peoples identities at the half bakery. To be honest I myself have been targeted by this syndrome being compared falsely as some dude from Cardiff from England.

The Truth is I am from Olive Hill Kentucky. So I post this ask for the madness to stop. It is simply crazy talk and very annoying to newbies.

I mean it is so ridiculous it is as insane as me saying Bigsleep is president Obama. That is how silly it is. Sorry Bigsleep I was using you as an example. I have no idea who you really are. Warning this was just an example of what ATIF Syndrome is.

Any way examples aside and posting ridiculous links I humbly ask this wacky practice to be banned please. I think it affected a member here who was in fact my aunt from Georgia. I will keep her identity a secret for her own protection.

Thank you for you time and reading this post.

       I sometimes think every member of my family is on here, including the goldfish we flushed down the toilet.

       Odd, coming from a newbie who set out to be very annoying. And I have my sources, boyo.

       // the goldfish we flushed down the toilet. //   

       He's now 3.5 metres long, weighs upwards of 480kg, and BOY is he pissed at you ....   

       // Bigsleep is president Obama. That is how silly it is. //   

       Indeed, utterly ridiculous and laughable, since everyone knows that he's actually [theporpoise].   

       So, who's Spartacus then ?

       //Since when did Cardiff get moved to England?// It an easy mistake to make. Ever since Scotland voted to remain part of England, people tend to assume that we've also agreed to run Wales. Frankly, I can't see it happening - no money in it as far as I can tell.

       // What is it about Cardiff that suggests that it belongs in England?//   

       Some cricket is played there. Which would never happen in, say, Caerdydd.

       OK, [travbm], I have bunned this idea for the sake of your aunt, whoever she may be.   

       I hope you don't go away. I hope you stay around, but think a little more about how this place works, and what goes over well here.

       I don't like identifying Halfbakers because to do that means I can't say, there's an interesting, vibrant intellect, I wonder if they are on the bakery.
wjt, Nov 20 2015
  

       Wait. I'm Obama or bigsleep?   

       Trav you did a good bot impression at the outset.
