Default Build log identity theft...

This has to qualify as one of the weirdest things that has ever happened to me...a buddy of mine was searching for RV-7 pics on the 'net this morning and came across a pic of Jack Holland's RV-7...a picture that I took. He wanted a closer look since he knows the airplane, and it took him to a gaming forum called IGN. What he found was some goober posting pictures...MY pictures...of "his" RV-7 build. Here's a link to that thread he found...

http://boards.ign.com/cars_lobby/b5126/185590559/p1/

After he forwarded me the link, I did some digging, and found that he has MANY threads on that forum about "RV Updates", "Engine hung", "Interior arrives"...even going so far as to announcing "his" first flight...here-

http://boards.ign.com/cars_lobby/b5126/194249246/p1/?27

You've all seen these pictures before, of course, because they are mine...but judging by the comments from others in the threads, he has been building a virtual RV-7 as long as I have.

I posted at the end of that thread to bust him out in front of his friends...feel free to register and do the same if ya want!

WTF???

This reminds me of Brad Paisley's "Online"

But there's a whole nother me
That you need to see
Go check out MySpace

'cause online I'm out in Hollywood
I'm 6'5 and I look **** good
I drive a Maserati
I'm a black belt in Karate
And I love a good glass of wine

It turns girls on that I'm mysterious
I tell 'em I don't want nothing serious
'cause even on a slow day I can have a three way
Chat with two women at one time

I'm so much cooler online
So much cooler online

I get home, I kiss my mom
And she fixes me a snack
I head down to my basement bedroom
And fire up my Mac

In real life the only time I
Ever even been to L.A.
Was when I got the chance with the marching band
To play tuba in the Rose Parade.

Online I live in Malibu
I posed for Calvin Kline, I've been in GQ
I'm single and I'm rich
And I got a set of six pack abs that'll blow your mind

It turns girls on that I'm mysterious
I tell 'em I don't want nothing serious
'cause even on a slow day I can have a three way
Chat with two women at one time

I'm so much cooler online
Yeah I'm cooler online

When you got my kinda stats, it's hard to get a date
Let alone a real girlfriend
But I grow another foot
And I lose a bunch of weight everytime I log in

Online I'm out in Hollywood
I'm 6'5 and I look **** good
Even on a slow day, I can have a three way
Chat with two women at one time

I'm so much cooler online
Yeah I'm cooler online
I'm so much cooler online
Yeah I'm cooler online

If he's been looking at your website, has he stolen your pets and wife too?

Every time I think I've seen it all, something odd like this happens. How truly bizarre.

You handled it very diplomatically too, btw. I'm not sure I would have been as civil.

Sounds like a good reason to join that board. CC'ing the board's admin might be a good idea too. Seems like grounds to lock down that guy's account.

br,
dr

PS: There was a kid on a radio controlled airplane board a couple of years back that told them that he had built Danny King's 'Beautiful Doll'. I joined the board and said "I'm typing this 10 feet from the airplane, and your name isn't on the data plate".

Thanks! What I wrote...wasn't necessarily what I was thinking, but regardless...it is amusing, if not flattering!

Default Well

That is just wierd...

But.......

Maybe coolpic or whatever is really you...and you are someone else., or he built it and your the imposter.... ..haha.

Thats kind of creepy to know some knob knows that much about you and wants to be you. That is why personally I would not have that much stuff out "there" cuz there are just too many weird people. I have enjoyed your site, Dans site, all sorts of sites..but you just dont know who or why people are looking at it. From a website you know where someone works, where their plane is, what they look like, what their wife looks like...sadly, you have to worry about the weirdos.

Gives me the willies....as your web site gives enough info to know a fair amount of your business. Good luck, might want to prune some of the details off the site or see if you can dig into who this guy is.

Default Amazing!

I seem to remember a similar deal involving Danny King's plane. Looks like your guy kept this going for 5 years! I would say that crosses the line well into mental illness. I just hope this oddball lives far from me.

I have thought about dropping most of the text from my site in the past...this may push things over the edge if my wife has anything to say about it...I guess I'll apologize now if I have to pull it down...
