We break from our regular coverage of TechTV-related podcasts, personalities, and news to chat about something I think is pretty important: mistaken identity, and having your identity hijacked for the purposes of authoritative commenting on random blogs.

I posted about my experiences having my name used by at least one troll over at the ZDNet blogs over at Gears and Widgets in a post called Spinning Gears :: A Curious Case of Mistaken Identity. I’d advise everyone to head over and check it out, and let me know their thoughts.

I’m reposting this to multiple sites in my network of blogs because I use my name on all of them, and because I want everyone who may look for me on the Web to know loud and clear who I am, and that I’m not the troll they’re looking for.

So what do you think? Have you ever had your identity maligned like this? Let me know in the comments, either here or over at Gears and Widgets.
