That would suffice but there's always

1. I don't have much of a posting history because most of my posts are anon in the Legal Employment forum.
2. Moderator A.Nony.Mouse has read my posts and I've addressed my concerns to him or her. As a Mod, he or she would have banned me immediately if I were Fred's alt.
I have and want nothing to do with Fred and have no interest in outing him. I don't know who he is IRL and don't care. I don't have any info or "dirt" on him from IRL because I don't know who he is IRL. I haven't posted anything about him that wasn't from one of his public posts under both his current account and his "pre-password loss" account.
goal I have is to have none of my IRL peers mistakenly equate me with Online Fred and cross-impute Fred's traits to IRL me. That's it. I don't want people to see me IRL and think "that's Fred online, he doesn't show it but he's [adjectives X, Y, and Z]."
The reason people will think that is not because he claims to be in Section 3 or to have a grade breakdown of whatever he had. Rather, it's because he asked this one question:

As you all know, it takes an unusual mishap to be in danger of not passing PSW. Out of 550, there can't be more than 5-10 a year. But IRL me is rumored to be in that group of 5-10/year to be in an uncertain and unusual PSW situation. So when people read Fred's public posts and see 1. Section 3; and 2. PSW mishap, the first name to pop into their heads is IRL me, which risks incorrectly linking IRL me to online Fred.
In fact, a PM I received shortly after I posted the above named my first initial, which confirmed my fear that people will mistakenly think IRL me has this online Fred persona.
Well, to set the record straight, IRL me grew up in NYC, as CivPro Prof W.Rubes mentioned when he called on me to discuss Parklane Hosiery v. Shore
. Only IRL me would remember which specific case I got cold called on.
If only you would remember which case you got cold called on then how does saying you got cold called on xxxx v yyyy do anything to help your case?
This is one of those "wait if you go back in time and change how your parents met, does that mean you don't exist..." "objections." But I meant it as a "who did Prof WR call on again for ABC v XYZ? No idea. But I have a first guess as to which IRL identity is in question here, and now that he mentions it, yea it was him/her who answered ABC v XYZ."
In contrast, Fred has publicly admitted

That should settle that IRL me is NOT online Fred.
