ok, so someone makes a mistake on a website email link, people email the wrong guy, and HE is blamed for it? WTF? This *please let us lick the shoes of our local politician* article is utterly clueless.

The impostor took it a step further recently, setting up an appointment through e-mail with Kurt Vantosky, director of advertising for the Daily News, to discuss campaign advertising.

The Imposter? ( Daily News reporter Nicole Tsong can be reached at ntsong@adn.com )

Mike is simply answering SPAM.

Now, secondly, as someone who built almost 200 websites back in the day, yo, things like this piss me off--its a dumb mistake

....i used to have a domain name that was similar to that of a philharmonic orchestra's. ThePhil, get it? anyways, people would email me all the time....one woman emailed me her Credit Card Number to reserve a box seat.

I emailed her back, letting her know what a bad idea it was to EVER to that online, and then emailed the people in charge of the site. (There was NO contact information available for email i had to do a bunch of sleuthing of related organizations.) Because there wasn't a contact email, people would just type something in i guess...and it would come to me if it was .COM instead of .ORG.

Ended up talking with an executive director of something or other who called me, and they ended up making contact information more readily available.

Now, i realize this is a slightly different situation, but If i would have been referred to as An Imposter i would have been sad. It would have made me and the baby jesus cry.
