The Official Optimist Prime Blog is a fake.

Optimist Prime

258 views

The Official Optimist Prime's blog, if you will allow for his creative licence, is a total ripoff of my Canucks.com login ID and 'persona' here at the website since April 2007.

There does not appear to be any official or even unofficial reason why this guy was allowed to steal my name for blogging on the website. Nor has anyone reached out to me to try to explain anything to me regarding the need to a weekly officially recognized blog using my Login Name and accepted 'persona' by 50,000 plus registered members on CDC.

I have mentioned this numerous times on the forums, and twice to the author of the made in an asian sweatshop knockoff Primes blog. Not even a 'sorry didnt see you there' note back to me.

Therefore, i will stop trying to fight this injustice with my own blog and merely leave this space to occasionally note that the less than stellar 'insight' being put forward by the impostor IS NOT ME. The Real OP is the one who can bring reality to his insight in an optimistic way, not the watered down cheerleader in the 'official' ripoffblog. Have a good night, I am off to watch Crows team battle AVs team in Dallas, hope Cory has a great game.tongue.gif

1) Nobody cares :P

2) It is an internet persona - Optimist Prime is hardly considered an original name. If anything, Mattel Entertainment should be suing you for using its products' name in order to gain 'legitimacy' in your posts :P

3) Unless that author is making posts that would seriously harm your reputation, both online and offline, I wouldn't worry about it. It is not "your" property and you have no standing copyright on the usage of the name.

4) In real life, you'd need a lawyer. This however, is a forum and should not constitute as 'real life'.

Give it a rest.

It wasn't me who made that blog so that's 49999 more or so people to investigate. :)

LOL Dazzle, take your own advice, its sports related entertainment, nothing more, but you would be PO'd too if the main canucks page started a Dazzle's Corner that you had no knowledge of: and the new replacement dazzle was a bit of a nob gobbler.

Optimist does have a point, I am sure that like me everyone assumed that it was him making the posts. Until I read that it wasn't him that is what I thought. The "New" guy should at least have let everyone know that (At least once he was aware of it) in his blog.

If Prime had 1000 posts or less to his name, noone would care, and nor should they.

But Prime has been a presence in CDC for awhile now. Whether you care or dont, the blatent thievery of his name deserves at the very least, an explanation.

When I first saw the blog's on Canucks.com I THOUGHT it was THIS Optimist Prime, which was the REASON I read it.

I dont mind Prime's insight and opinion, they are usually thought out and decently written.

But the tripe on canucks.com was pooooorly written, one grammatical error after the next.

Yeah, I think it is utterly stupid that someone would take someone else's name from the forum and hog it up like that. I don't agree with that person and agree with you.

However, I made that post because I don't think there's much you can do about it. If the admins are not responding, they must think it's not very important. I can see why you're mad though, don't get me wrong. Dazzle's Blog, if it was a knob who was writing it, would certainly get me mad. But I wouldn't think I could do anything about it.

I think it is a friend you know that is on the forums trying to piss you off for fun - it's just a guess.

Hrm, Dazzle might have a point, and my suspicious nature is making me think this is the revenge of DOOP. ROFL.

All well, imitation is the best form of flattery, i suppose, but still: a pair of home game tix might wash this poison pill down a little nicer.

How have you tried to contact the imposter?

The only way available to me, making enquiries by posting in HIS blog, which he promptly deletes.

You better be taking me.

There's definitely intent then.

Someone who knows you well then and is trying to push buttons to see what would happen.

To some extent, I wonder why the admins seem complicit about this issue. If the blog was under the account Canucks_Admin_2 or something, I guarantee a much swifter response. :rolleyes:

Don't get too riled up - I sense that if the imposter wants to piss you off, he wants to see action. He probably doesn't get any in his offline time. Cheer up :)

Seriously, I can see why you're annoyed.

I have to agree with you. If it was an orignal name in the first place, I'd be totally sympathetic, but how po'd can a thief get when another thief steals from him? What can he say, "You've stolen, what I've rightfully filched?" (paraphrasing Princess Bride). Sorry, but if Optimist Prime was original to the OP, he`d probably get a lot more sympathy from the admins.
