I have no idea why after being on Eng-Tips for 17 years I’ve been stripped of my Pats’ Pub proprietorship and kicked out of Eng-Tips’ Round Table and Pats’ Pub. I have been helpful to other members, especially in the ChE sections. I’m confused, sad, and can’t get a simple explanation.
ET member LRJ posted in the Pub they were invited to SE and one of their ET threads were there. I looked, saw nothing, and deleted the post. It was off-topic in the Pub, I’m not Skylar, and, besides, the link was broken. Maybe, I was late to the game? Skylar said I invited LRJ to SE using his e-mail address from ET, but I did not.
I wonder what LRJ would do if he saw that Engineering.com has created a bogus account for him, complete with profile, username, password, AND his e-mail address. I.e. his identity has been stolen. Not just for him, but dozens of other ET MVPs and members. For example, LRJ is in two threads; one is here:
Scroll down to the first post on March 1, 2018 and find him. And, ET created bogus profiles, usernames and passwords for some good folks who joined SE, like @MikeHalloran @IRStuff @moltenmetal @JAE @Maui @Scotty @compositepro @GregLocock @Lomarandil @artisi and @lacajun. These good folks are in the above thread too.
So, ET just thinks I did something, I didn’t, and they boot me, but they actually did what they accused me of, dozens, maybe hundreds, of times, and nothing! Ironic, isn’t it?
They’ve stolen our identities to give the false impression the engineering community supported and were active in their new site. We don’t, and we aren’t. IMHO, the site sucks, which I told them, and, then, never went back to participate.
