Was the really stupid thing done on the LTPF? If so, was it visible to other members? Did it have to do with: logging in? Settings? PMs? Posting puzzles? Replying to questions? Asking questions? Quick reply relevant? Text formatting? Some other function on the forum? Spam posts?

***** SPOILER *****

Recently, I inadvertently posted a few puzzles using my old forum name in the title header. I didn't notice it till a few days went by. Well, that was really stupid on my part. I did not even connect the dots when a user (sorry, his or her name escapes me at the moment) welcomed me "back" in one of the mislabeled puzzles.

Haha, I have definitely done this before. In addition, I once logged in with my old username to answer questions, probably leaving a few newer people scratching their heads---how does Gourami know the answer to IrishElk's puzzle? :D

My most recent "duh" moment was using the same character name for two puzzles. I was just really on a "Landon" kick that day, I guess.
