Before y’all go read on what I have to say. I do have to warn You first. Basically this post is me venting of some steam… 😉
“Don’t judge a man by his moccasins, unless you’ve walked a mile in them.” What if it were Your friend, idol, favorite actor/singer/etc…
I think “Die Antwoord” really sings it best. 😉
“To all my mensen that have been down with us: I fokken love you.”
An impostor or imposter is a person who pretends to be somebody else, often to try to gain financial or social advantages through social engineering, but just as often for purposes of espionage or law enforcement.
False pretenders to various thrones used to be common. Numerous men claimed they were the Dauphin, the heir to the French throne who disappeared during the French Revolution, and there were three false Dimitris who were serious pretenders to the throne of Russia. Other notable royal pretenders include Perkin Warbeck, Anna Anderson, and, more recently, Robert Brown, who claims to be the son of Princess Margaret and Peter Townsend (an RAF officer). The case of Anna Anderson is unusual in that it is believed that her claim to be the Grand Duchess Anastasia of Russia was the work of a third party, as she was not considered to be in sound mind. It also differs from many other impostures in that although hard, irrefutable scientific proof has arisen making her (or the third party’s) claim without a doubt false, many still refuse to discount it.
Very daring impostors may pretend to be someone else who really exists, although the rapidity of modern news coverage has made this difficult in the case of notable individuals. Usually, however, impostors simply take on a new and completely fabricated identity, misrepresenting their financial status, educational status, social status, family background and, in some cases, gender. Impostors are usually aware of not being who they say they are. However, there are borderline cases who may end up believing their own tall tales, and some (often children or those suffering from a mental illness such as dementia or schizophrenia, as in the case of Anna Anderson) whose imposture may be the creation of a third party. People may make false claims about their past or background without being full-blown impostors; common false claims include having seen military action and involvement in well-known disasters such as the sinking of the RMS Titanic or the September 11, 2001, attacks. It is sometimes said that if every person who claimed to have “just missed” the Titanic’s departure had been on board, the ship would have sunk like a lead weight in Southampton Harbour.

Another nice one! 😆
As I posted this morning on Facebook already.
This post should serve as a kind but firm reminder that despite _my_ reports, this profile still appears to exist! 😦
Btw, I don’t mind a _true_ fan’s appreciation for Ewa Sonnet by way of making awesome remixes of Her publicly available works. 😉 But I do mind people pretending to be someone I _KNOW_, who has been nothing but kind and respectful towards me and Her other real fans over the last year on Facebook and elsewhere! 😉
Obviously I can’t fault a person for wanting to look like her favorite idol. But see what I wrote above for more… Also I’ll be making screenshots of every action I’m going to take from hereon end. I might even reblog this on my blog. Because I don’t want to sit idle by when some lamer tries to smear Her reputation…
That’s all folks…
PS: My words are my own, my actions are my own. Everything I wrote and did in this post are my own responsibility. Ultimately it is up to You dear Reader to make up Your _own_ mind! 😉
