I just became aware that Waldo has forged ( To fashion or reproduce for fraudulent purposes) my name and linked my website to a comment made on his blog. Waldo admits changing the real authors name to mine. I did not make this comment and in fact have not commented on Waldo's blog in some time.
Here's where Waldo confesses to changing the name:
Carl, I’ve taken the liberty of changing the name that you entered (”Teddy’s Turds”) to your real name. How embarrassing for you to have mistyped your name so severely. But, hey, mistakes happen, so I’ve got you covered.
It's clear Waldo is trying to embarrass Kilo. The only question is whether Waldo really and truly believed Kilo was posting under another name (in which case he's just sloppy and ignorant), or if he simply asserted so without any reason.
But what is NOT in question is that Waldo changed the signature on a blog entry, forging Kilo's name. There is no good reason to do that without permission from the commenter. Blog ettiquite -- if you think someone's posting under a different name, you can accuse them, you can delete their comments, but you shouldn't EDIT other people's comments, much less their signatures. That's just bad form.
I recommend NOBODY post to Waldo's comment section until he proves he can be trusted not to be changing people's comments to make them look bad, or worse. Bloggers who edit comments like this, or worse who make wholesale deletions simply because they don't like losing an argument, should be punished by the blogosphere, or else all of us will get a bad name.
