I found a user on 9gag with the username linus sebastian. http://9gag.com/u/linustechtips#
and well, I don't think Linus is the kind of guy to be on 9gag. and the way this user has been commenting, it seems this is not the real Linus.

What do you guys think?

Anyway, most probably that's just some kid who idolizes linus.

Besides, if he is not doing something to affect anyone in a bad way, I don't see anything wrong.

That isn't even a le funny meme. No one probably even knows who Linus is if they're on 9gag. Everyone uses memebase.

It's blatantly obvious it's fake if you even begin to consider the posting habits. Also, stop using 9GAG to burn free time; it's full of dry humor.

Does it really matter?

 

Say I put the name Barack Obama and say that I'm him on 9GAG, is that against the rules and make it true? I don't think so. Let the kid keep the username, it's just a harmless joke, I'm pretty sure Linus won't care.

 

Plus, it's 9GAG. The place where memes go to die.

Well he just said that someone is using his name as a username.

Nothing about what activities this user does.

Besides, I see a lot of people who uses the names of celebrities.

the thing is, he's not acting like being linus tech tips, he just got the name.

that said, probably the reason he got said name is to leech off of LTT's popularity to get "more likes" because that appareantly is a measure for one's own greatness on websites like that...

Which is also wrong. Doesn't matter if he "acts" like Linus. He's utilizing Linus' celebrity status and really...by having the handle and the profile picture, he is misleading people into believing it's actually Linus. To me, doesn't matter how you spin it. It's wrong.

yup. although, i doubt either the dude or 9gag will care about linus' credibility. 9gag is kinda known as a website filled with stolen pictures with a watermark on them.

Hmmm...

We do have users here who uses the name of "celebrities".

Example:

A few Barack Obamas.

Did you ever think that one of those obamas is the real one?

 

I'm simply trying to say that as long as you do not deface the said "name owner", or use his name to scam people or something, there is barely anything wrong with that.

It kinda comes along with being a "celebrity".

If an LTT post makes it onto 9gag most people in the comments know him.

People literally do that all the time, and if they are really a LTT follower than they would know this account is fake.

There are tons of users who "impersonate" celebrities.

I wouldn't even consider Linus very popular to begin with, he's basically a nobody in comparison to celebrities and he's a nobody to anyone who doesn't care about computers.

You're in a better place now. A place where bananas are the standard measurement. A place the captain flies to.

 

Since this post isn't long, you get no potato.


"Normandy" i7 4790K - GTX 970 - Phantom 410 (Gun metal) - Z97 Extreme4 (asrock) - 128GB Crucial SSD - 1TB WD HDD - H60 Refurb. - 7 case fans | G710+ Keyboard, G230 Headset, Acer GN246HL Monitor.

Quick thoughts on system: I7 is extremely quick and I'm glad I spent the extra for hyper-threading. I regret my decision to get the GTX 970, it has horrible coil whine. There isn't any excuse for this terrible whine I and others are having. I HIGHLY recommend a 144hz monitor. Future Improvements/upgrades: Rubber fan mounts, basic speakers, more ram (for a total of 16gb), replace GPU.

144hz is love. 144hz is life. I like to submit unfinished posts then do about 20 edits. I like the Night Theme too.
