Ever heard of msg headers? On this list alone:

He started out here last September (2010)
From: Parshwa Murdia <ubuntu.bkn at>
Subject: hi
Date: Thu, 2 Sep 2010 17:34:17 +0530

Switched to PM in July 2011:
From: PM <ubuntu.bkn at>
Subject: A basic question, to be asked.
Date: Thu, 28 Jul 2011 12:19:17 -0700
and changes email addresses in the same thread:
From: PM <reallife at>
Subject: Re: A basic question, to be asked.
Date: Sat, 30 Jul 2011 09:50:03 -0700
[pay attention to 'reallife at', it will be on the test later]

Then to 'Linux Tyro':
From: Linux Tyro <ubuntu.bkn at>
Subject: Re: How to figure out my client address for ftp?
Date: Sun, 23 Oct 2011 22:26:57 +0530
Adds a '1' to ubuntu.bkn at
From: Linux Tyro <ubuntu.bkn1 at>
Date: Mon, 31 Oct 2011 08:15:07 +0530

Then to R V S Reddy (he announced this change on the list so no foul there)
From: R S V Reddy <ubuntu.bkn1 at>
Subject: to the general ubuntu forum
Date: Fri, 11 Nov 2011 05:46:09 -0600

Starts posting as LinuxIsOne:
From: LinuxIsOne <linuxisone at>
Subject: Dual booting: Ubuntu LTS and openSUSE 12.1
Date: Sun, 27 Nov 2011 11:53:13 -0500

Forgets and switches back to the reallife at (remember
PM/Parshwa Murdia above?):
From: LinuxIsOne <reallife at>
Subject: Re: What I do for a new machine?
Date: Mon, 5 Dec 2011 07:31:45 -0500

Then posts as:
From: "Rameshwar Kr. Sharma" <mathsrealworld at>
Subject: Newbie query: Ubuntu vs openSUSE
Date: Fri, 23 Dec 2011 11:07:51 +0530
but forgets and uses his linuxisone email in the process:
Original-Received: from ([])
	by with esmtp (Exim 4.71)
	(envelope-from <linuxisone at>) id 1RdxpI-0004Gy-Lq

And sends me a direct email as "Rameshwar Kr. Sharma"
<mathsrealworld at>, but the headers in that also show:
Received: by with SMTP id hf7mr17983002obc.29.1324790173782;
 Sat, 24 Dec 2011 21:16:13 -0800 (PST)
Sender: linuxisone at
Received: by with HTTP; Sat, 24 Dec 2011 21:16:13 -0800 (PST)

I'll leave it up to you to go google those on the other linux lists, but
here's a few just in case you're missing the point:
    From: PM <mathsrealworld at xxxxxxxxx>
    Date: Wed, 23 Nov 2011 10:46:54 -0500
Mathematics Coach at IIT Trainings
[there's that 'PM' again...]
From: "Praful Patel" <personalcloud at xxxxxxxxxxx>
Date: Sat, 19 Nov 2011 08:20:27 -0800
Praful Patel
Mathematics Coach at IIT Trainings

Gee... I wonder just how many "Mathematics Coach at IIT Trainings" there

Neither is nymshifting & trolling on this list. It's pretty clear that
'Rameshwar Kr. Sharma/PM/LinuxIsOne/Praful Patel/R V S Reddy/Parshwa
Murdia' are the same.
