Seems like it is YOUR problem.

I am surprised that someone can register with a name so close to one already held - there is just one keysroke difference.

I agree- contact FE & get the name removed. I just wonder what can be done in future to stop this happening. Just as well VOG noticed the difference before any silly posts were applied on genuine help requests!

and why? - Maybe because the person 'using you' knows that you are held in high esteem by so many of us & wanted to bask in your glory [for a short while at least]?

well, it is impossible for all to be taken i suppose and he could easily try any combination of ascii characters to look the same.

Methinks it's just waiting for a spell and see if the FE can work his magic - lol

Maybe the imposter lacks the imagination to think of something original, have they actually done anything untoward or pretended to be you in any other way.

The real Gandalf has not yet appeared online.
