Hello tye,

First, I must apologize for contacting you this way. I just haven't had a problem like this before at PM, and I don't know how to handle it. I searched on it, but didn't find anything appropriate. I was going to use a private message, but I don't think you can review the message. Anyway here goes.

A few days ago I received a response message from jim about a post I did earlier in the year. The whole thing went wrong when I didn't realize that tchrist was Tom Christiansen until he identified himself as the author of the article I was asking about.

Usually I wait some time before answering, but I immediately answered jim hoping to clarify my intentions in asking the original question, but it seems I've only made things worse.

Immediately my post was answered by an "Anonymous Monk" and I immediately answered him.

So the next day I re-read the entire post again, and I realize the AM quoted me in his post and now I think it looks like I answered myself with an 'ad' type post. I enjoy PM too much to take a cheap shot like that. I always login before even looking at anything.

The AM post is here

Is there a way to at least show that I didn't post that response. If you can point me to a procedure, I'll be glad to follow whatever is required. The AM is entitled to his opinion, I just want s/he to take credit for it. If you don't think it matters, then I'll leave it at that.

I think I'd better go back to waiting some time before answering.

Thank you...Ed

    On the internet, nobody knows you're not a dog.

    There are ways to determine that somebody on the internet is "you" (or is coordinating with you). There really isn't any way to determine that somebody on the internet is not "you".

    So, yes, PerlMonks has no procedures defined for doing the impossible.

      Hello tye,

      Okay, let is stand!

      Thank you...Ed
