I'm Not TorontoMike on Reddit

I'm Not TorontoMike on RedditIt seems there's a Redditor who goes by the name TorontoMike who is quite active on the /r/Canada subreddit. I am definitely not Reddit's TorontoMike.

Members of /r/MetaCanada, however, believe we're one and the same and that I'm the "neckbeard" they love to hate.

I actually had to Google the term neckbeard to find out what they were actually calling Reddit's TorontoMike. Here's what a neckbeard is, according to Urban Dictionary.

Talkative, self-important nerdy men (usually age 30 and up) who, through an inability to properly decode social cues, mistake others' strained tolerance of their blather for evidence of their own charm.

That doesn't sound like me at all!

Well, "self-important" is definitely not you Mike!

I have a very realistic perception of just how unimportant I am.

Shows how easily a brand you have built up can be high jacked.

Maybe you should send them a cease and desist letter.

I hear Brian Burke has a lawyer that is quite good at these letters. Perhaps we could start an indigogo account for this.

Heck if gawker can start one and already have fifty grand so far to feed money to drug dealers, then you must be able to make at least $100,000 in no time.

@Ottawa Mike

I'm claiming ownership of any CITY + FIRST NAME combinations.

Ottawa Mike, cease and desist!

And someone beat me to twitter with

The nerve of some people.

I'm going to get very rich, and build my own city. I will call the city "Mike". I will then have a child whom I shall give the first name "Boon".

Then you'll hear from my lawyers.

could your lawyer, presumably like Rob Ford's lawyer to Gawker, send an e-mail from the ever threatening @hotmail.com website domain? Then I may take you more seriously.

You know I was wondering. My wife used to come here all the time during the initial Rob Ford brouhaha and the TorontoMike on Reddit seemed...very different.
