[edit] Hey, I recognise that name...

Are you the guy who sent in underlings? --phlip TC 04:04, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

  • nods* See the discussion thread. - PlasticDiverGuy
    • Why that name? Awexome 20:51, 26 September 2007 (UTC)
      • I signed with that name as my real name is a bit of an easy target for Strong Bad. I picked PlasticDiverGuy as a handle years ago because I wanted something more unique. I have a link to a clip of him in my profile. PlasticDiverGuy 23:46, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Sender of email

It's amazing what Google can do. Check this out. It probably shouldn't go on the page for privacy reasons, but it's interesting nonetheless. Has Matt? (talk) 01:26, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

Oh, well done! Not sure if there's a privacy issue here, since it's a public profile. Hmmm, didn't we have a discussion about identifying email senders after H*Bad pretended to have sent one. Not sure what the outcome was. Loafing 01:30, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
The H*Bad discussion can be found at Talk:unnatural#This is my email. As for this one, I don't really know much about privacy issues and such. Has Matt? (talk) 01:41, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
We didn't do much when I researched The Nitwon. --DorianGray 04:11, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
Aye, the sender was I. I know you'll all be wanting proof so here is my best shot at this. Here are two screenshots I took that hopefully shed light on this. I expect scrutiny on this and welcome it. I did black out the email addresses in my box for privacy reasons, as well as one letter in my personal email address. I present My Sent folder as exhibit A.
As exhibit B, I present a Facebook message I received from someone else who looked up PlasticDiverGuy on Google. As I work evenings (see the timestamp in Exhibit A), I didn't read this until Monday afternoon. This Facebook message was how I found out about my email getting used.
For Exhibit C, I'll give you the story behind the email. To avoid possible privacy issues at work, I have not made it public on my Facebook profile yet, even with a wall post linking to the email. The smunderling involved does not watch H*R to my knowledge, as evidenced by his reaction to my The Cheat shirt one day recently. Once a few weeks goes by, there will be enough time passed that I can make up an alibi if anyone at work confronts me on it.
One of the employees on my team brought forward a concern to me that someone's stench was bothering her (heavy cologne). This was the first time I had to pull someone aside about this awkward issue, and thankfully my boss helped me through it. Later, a fellow manager asked me how the feedback went. The words tact and professionalism were used in this exchange (he was an English major). That night, when I got home, I had just visited H*R and thought to myself, "What would Strong Bad suggest?" I had addressed it that night in a highly awkward meeting and knew Strong Bad had to live with Strong Mad and had mentioned SM's smelly singlet in a prior email. On a whim, I sent the email. The email was written first. The final two additions were the catchy subject line (which took longer to write than the email), and the signature. I had planned on using my real name (see above link), but remembered that Annis (pronounced ANN-ISS) is easily mispronounced as "anus" and Strong Bad liked making fun of names. I signed off using the handle I have used for years, which is a reference to PBS' Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego. It was obscure enough to not be taken on Fark.com (Plastic Diver Guy there) so I ran with it. I currently play on the MSN Gaming Zone (usually poker) as PlasticDiverGuy (15 char. limit there so no spaces) and on the Neverwinter Nights server Arelith as PlasticDiverGuy (also my forum name there). I used it on my WAYN profile for kicks. I haven't updated that in years. For those who are wondering where the blurb at the end about Opera's email client, I deleted that for the sake of saving space and TBC's time.

Oh yeah, no worries about the privacy thing there with me personally. I'd just watch out for that in the future. - PlasticDiverGuy

Hey PlasticDiverGuy. I didn't realize you were gonna post that text elsewhere, or I wouldn't have taken up so much space with it here. Would you have a look at my question here, s'il vous plait? — It's dot com 05:16, 9 May 2007 (UTC)
I see you updated your profile. Thanks! — It's dot com 05:41, 9 May 2007 (UTC)
Nice. Congrats on getting your email answered! Loafing 05:42, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Signing`

Just type four tildes. Never fails — — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 09:28, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] STUFF

Hey Mark. Just so you know, anonymous users are not allowd to vote in STUFF. I've removed your two votes, but you can replace them once you're logged in. (It's also a lot easier, because all you have to do is type a number sign and three tildes (#~~~) and the system takes care of the details.) — It's dot com 16:45, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the info. I don't intend to be a one-shot deal here so any help is much appreciated as I learn the wiki system. I only found out about the four tildes today. PlasticDiverGuy 18:57, 9 May 2007 (UTC)
