I have seen Bob Dix as author of all discussions. Now I don't seen him.

I'm assuming this was a side effect of the node outages. Let us know if you continue to see this.

RE: Who is Bob Dix?

He is Chuck Norris!!!

Note: I fixed it by cleaning up all cookies related to Adobe, just cleaning cache didn't change a thing.

Rick, it would seem that the Bob Dick problem has not been solved. Bernd's opening message refers to a Bob Dick appeared at his machine as author of almost every thread. When I looked for Bob Dick, I found the one I linked in my message #1, who then existed, was disabled, and had six posted messages in all, but later my own link took me "doesn't exixt" window, and right now it's taking me to a HanssonAS individual. And now you post screenshots showing what Bernd reported in his OP.

All I can say is that I haven't seen what your screenshots show. Maybe it's an effect not affecting all forums alike?

As I said, clearing Cookies fixed the display of names.

Posts were real, but only the usernames were all showing as Bob.

Over here, I have never seen any of those ghost posts; all forums have looked normal with the right posters all along.

I believe it may be an issue limited to email notifications and  certain servers/forums.

There were issues earlier today where the username for posts was being incorrectly displayed on the website and in the email subscriptions. Messages were being registered against the correct user so you shouldn't have lost any posts.

The issue appears to be resolved as of now.

According to the latest Adobe Forums technology I'm a multiple personality now.

Usually, I'm Kurt Gold. Now – after signed in – I'm Kurt Gold or Bob Dix, occasionally John Pahl and sometimes Ben Hutchinson.

This is a serious glitch. After all, we are talking about official Customer ID's.

That's beyond the pale.

Ben Hutchinson, John Pahl, Raymond Jackson, and a couple of the others appear to be spam personae. If you hover over their profile they have no real email address, just a string of code without even an @ in it, and they all have the same spam avatar, for appliancejunk.com. Something is really wrong.

Yes, Barbara.

I still think this might be a data base hack.

Chris, even in this thread?

Post 2 was done by me when I was signed in as Kurt Gold.

Do you see my name or do you see Ben Hutchinson?

The issue is ongoing and relates to maintenance on the forum software. There is no indication of any hacking of the Adobe website, and the false user accounts being shown against some messages on some of the network nodes are not really linked to any of the posts.

I thought saw in other threads at least one of heads of the forums said there was no known mantenance going on at the time.

I finally got sign-in straight  was having to sign in every time I read a thread, was  screwed up for two days after the did what ever the did Thursday night.

No maintenance of the forum software has been announced -I wish there was one, as there are so many pending issues that have been posted and ignored.

I think that it extremely serious that a post by Kurt Gold appears as posted by Ben Hutchinson, as I'm seeing in the link posted by Kurt. Even more so if the message appears in Ben's profile:

Barbara, email addresses are not available to us mere mortals, and I am not sure it's all right that they are available to you.

Are you saying that a spam person (and I'm not sure what do you mean by that) started this thread?

http://forums.adobe.com/message/4786981#4786981

I'm sorry, but for this ignorant persons it looks as if something is very wrong here.

And, at least to me, it seems that there is something infinitely much more wrong in that that us mortal users receive no explanation about what is really happenig here,  We have been told many times that all infomation about users is not handled here, but at adobe.com. Could it be that Bob has access to Kurt's Adobe account and vice versa? That would really be awful.

Perhaps it was even innocent. Maybe Adobe screwed up and when Bob was posting something it was credited to Kurt's account and vis-versa.

Knowing adobe and Jive  it wouldn't be surprising. Funny it happened around time when people were asking about the strange outage that happened Thursday for 6 hours or more. That I believe it was John that said he was unaware of any ongoing update. Yet in another Mr Merchant said Adobe-Jave was in deed updating  the system.

Sorry, Barbara, but the concept of "spam personae" applied to participants that do have valid profiles and lists of posts, is simply beyond my comprehension.

Yesterday it was Bob Dix, then Tomoko Taki; today it was Raymond Jackson... Whatever the name, a single author was being credited to most forum postings except my own in the discussion list (on the Fireworks forum). I followed RickRicardo's suggestion (in replies #6 & #10) to delete domain cookies, and the problem cleared up. Thanks, Rick!

After eliminating cookies, I am still seeing this in Ben Hutchinson's profile:

Ben.JPG

And this message does not appear in Kurt Gold's profile. So my questrion is: does Ben Hutchinson exist? Regardless, how come that a message posted by Kurt Gold appeares in his profile and not in Kurt's?

I've heard some day Adobe or one of its partners is going to provide software that will organise the air traffic safety in South America.

Hopefully it's just an unfounded rumour.

Let's hope so. Our largest airline, Lan, has just merged with the largest Brazilian one, Tam; and both are among the best ranked in the world as regards to safety. They certainly don't need a lead life jacket.

Dave it is somewhat Adobe's Fault in that they settled for this Company that doesn't know how to do things right. and when they accidentally get it right can't resist the temptation mess with it. and when thing go wrong they don't have any contingencies  for when things go boom.

As my tag line goes in my regular emails goes: "if it ain't broke! Don't Fix it!"

Dave, as I see things, there were just two (one of them mine). I wouldn't blame you if you now think that there are three. And I still think it would be wiser to eliminate them than to close the thread.

I always thought that it went like this:

How else do you create employment for the unemployables and also have fun from the fiasco ?
