Find EF twins

Sometimes when reading posts I get the impression that same person is behind two different handles. That's what I call EF-twins. The purpose of this thread/game is to spot them.
Here are some examples that came across in the last days:

- transition & Seb70 (questioning life and seeking for answers about life)
- Marawder & sophisticat (same anti-islam bashing & posting)

Have you seen others?

Re: Find EF twins

Is that not so obvious way of identifying duplicate accounts?

Re: Find EF twins

I am sure the mods have more sophisticated methods to check IP addresses for duplicate accounts.

the aim is not to find duplicate accounts, but rather to find people who have very similar thinking and writing style.

Mods can confirm that I don't have dupe handles. Would not like someone else stealing my thunder.

If you carry on going like that, they'll think we are twins.

Haha, I should really think before I post.

But you can actually have "fraternal twin"

Re: Find EF twins

Seb70 and Phil_mcr. Same worldview. Views on money, life and the opposite sex seem very similar

Re: Find EF twins

I'm finding myself freaked out at certain posts thinking "When on earth did I post that?", only to realise it's not me, just my avatar...

And I'm sure some people realize that and don't use the same IP for the different accounts

Re: Find EF twins

The one other forum I frequent has a member who shortened his handle from Mudflap to Mud. He's much smarter than I am too, so I'm always pleased with myself and then disappointed.

Re: Find EF twins

This should be followed by a similarly themed social event. They might even look alike! This has happened to me, my friends found my "twin" and we met and i was freaking out and speechless. We even had the same haircut, same hair texture, we were (i changed) both boyish. We participated in the same activities. Interresant!

And your point is?...nevermind, you´re attacking people who have the disorders mentioned including me (thanks for following my posts). And you think you are funny.
