    I just did a google search of my username, and came up with some very stramnge websites that have my username in their search. Websites that I know I had nothing to do with.

    Something about Gaymillionairs club, and then the subject of the link has nothing to do with the title. Also, something to do with someones wedding aniversary, and travel for singles.

    I also noticed some links with foreign writing. I'm wondering if someone is using my username to get hits to their websites.
    This might work to my advantage, but, I still think it's weird.

    Anyone else notice this?

    Yeah I found links to my hubs in the title of google search results and couldn't find them when I clicked on the page ? hmm
    Bizarre.. maybe it is some new spamming trick

    Let me get this straight?

    Your at such a level of reknown that your name is a magic ticket to gaining visitors!

    ..Im guessing mancandy isnt a completely unique word and BRI is certainly not very rare

    thanks for the laugh

      No, if you do a google search for Brimancandy, the entire word comes up as a single word, it is not split up. If it were, I would get zillions of "Man" and "Candy" links. Only a few thousand show up.

      A few of the sites are related to things I have posted. But, some have nothing to do with it. Look it up, or better yet, google your own username.

    It's probably just someone else who has used the same username all their life, I have someone out there who uses the same username as me, and it can be annoying when we are both trying to sign up to the same thing.

    I don't see anyway in which someone stealing your username could be beneficial though!

    'Bi_man_candy' (similar) does sound like the sort of name that might appear on a site for gay millionaires. smile
