Interesting motive for reapproaching posting at this, my site (“suzyrice.com”), and that motive is I’m now seeing my identity used by whomever else on a variety of other sites, none of which are done by me on those sites.
I realize in this populated world, the occurences of similar, if not matching, identities happen. It’s just annoying and poses a real issue for me in relationships and communications when I see my identity appearing NOT in relationship with me — this “Suzy Rice,” a legal identity for me as otherwise birthed “Susan Elizabeth Rice” (both are acceptable legal identities for me, the same individual, since both have been used to refer to me, the same person, on abundant occasions, including for professional credits in print, throughout my long life).
I received an email at my gmail account — cheery, friendly but utterly misdirected to me — this morning from someone employed at “UC Davis” (University of California at Davis), referring to a “phone call” with “Suzy” that never occured. Never occured, at least, by me, Suzy Rice, with/to that individual at UC Davis.
Never had any relationship, contact or otherwise, association, business, with UC Davis in any capacity. But I’m now receiving email from an employee there referring to some fantasy “phone call” I’ve never engaged in with her. I responded to the email with an explanation to this, the effect, that she’s contacting the wrong individual at my email address.
I’ve received ‘tweets’ and remarks on another site from the unruly anony crowd as they’ve wrongly assumed I’m some “Suzy Rice” they know, have had contact with, interacted with elsewhere.
Following is a brief but partial list of locations where I, Suzy Rice a/k/a Susan Elizabeth Rice DO or DO NOT participate, DO or DO NOT have user accounts, have or have NOT interacted via commenting or any other linkage — and if and as anyone on these and other sites IS presenting as “Suzy Rice,” they’re not me, a/k/a Susan Elizabeth Rice unless included in the following as locations where I DO participate:
INSTAGRAM: I don’t use “instagram” website (someone there apparently has an account under my identity, or their name that is similar/if not the same as mine); thus, whoever IS using that site with an account registered to “Suzy Rice” is not me, Suzy Rice, a/k/a Susan Elizabeth Rice.
DEMOCRATIC UNDERGROUND: I don’t use “democraticunderground.com” and never have, nor have any intention of doing so for any reason — the site most particularly represents the polar opposite of my idea of good use of my time for social, political or personal benefit or enjoyment; thus, whoever IS using that site with an account registered to “Suzy Rice” is not me, Suzy Rice, a/k/a Susan Elizabeth Rice.
FACEBOOK: a long, long time ago, I DID register an account there with user I.D. of “Suzy Rice” that I immediately put into storage — rendered it closed at my request immediately after creating/registering it. This was done to secure my identity of “Suzy Rice” on that highly trafficked site so as to prevent anyone else from registering it as such due to recurring identity/user complications as have just been explained. If and when I ever reapproach facebook.com — no current plans to do so — I will need to create an alternative identity for that site since facebook.com won’t now allow me back into the long-ago created-and-closed account of “Suzy Rice”.
TWITTER: (same process as FACEBOOK) > I registered at twitter a long, long time ago as user account name “suzyrice” — never tweeted, exited the site, intentionally closed the account, shredded my password. I later reapproached twitter.com and registered again a “suzy_rice” account, which I *DO* use and have used extensively (twitter.com/suzy_rice) — this was done AFTER contacting twitter for my lost password for first, since-closed, original account, which twitter refused since someone else, so they explained, had “assumed” my first I.D. registration of “suzyrice”. Twitter used to allow accounts that were fallow for over a year to be adopted by others, which explains why someone else took over that first account ID I’d created but never used; however, twitter then ceased allowing that practice, which explains why they denied my later request to resume use of my first, old account.
To restate that, I use “suzy_rice” at twitter, not “suzyrice” since someone else, so twitter has explained to me, has assumed the latter after I left that first twitter ID remain fallow, unused, for well over a year (perhaps two).
THEREFORE, the ONLY OCCURENCES of my identity, “Suzy Rice” a/k/a Susan Elizabeth Rice, that are by me, on the internet are on Wikipedia.com (“Suzy Rice” a/k/a Susan Elizabeth Rice, twitter.com (“suzy_rice”), and on my two registered sites, domains suzyrice.com and suzyriceimage.com.
I use “suzyrice” for a gmail address and no others in reference to my identity. I use “writesuzyrice” at yahoo for email as a secondary contact.
I DO have a gmail.com profile associated with my gmail address using the I.D. of “suzyrice”.
I AM listed in Linkedin.com as “suzyrice” via my gmail address by that same user I.D.
There are obviously malcontented persons in this world and many of them use the internet to act-out destructively and dishonestly to and about others, for whatever their motives may be. However, I don’t respect impersonators except of the visually recorded kind in comedic events — while on the internet, impersonators using others’ identities are the equivalent of bicycle thieves: the lowest of the low (unless clearly revealed as an impersonator’s attempt at humor).
My surname, “RICE,” is by this decade dispersed throughout the U.S. geography after centuries of presence in North America by my ancestors, and, eventually, persons not related to me who acquired the surname by various routes. I’ve been subjected to racial animus as if I was Black — I’m not Black, I’m as Anglo-Saxon racially as anyone ever can be, proven by family DNA testing for other reasons; and, a lot of that racial animus done about me in wrongly assuming I’m Black (though I’m not, not even a bit per the family DNA testing), was from Blacks acting out against me racially, assuming me-as-Conservative was due their-Black-animus. So the racism isn’t to be assumed to be by other races; and, most of it was truly ugly to include a few website pages that hosts have since removed at my request.
The Black people in today’s and current events with the “Rice” surname acquired it by various branches in past relationships not related to me (entire families with “Rice” surname are Black though they are not related to me, familiarly or biologically — complicating this is that there are two, distinct immigrations by two, distinct “Rice” families and persons — not related to one another, different DNA; my originating ancestors came from Northern Europe and were Anglo Saxon) — and, now in very current events, I am confused with the likes of the notorious Dept. of State individual, Susan Elizabeth Rice, Black and associated dreadfully (in my opinion) with the Obama Administration.
I can imagine there are cryptic individuals who seek to confuse the public as to who, what, why for social and political reasons, as to the views and associations of others. That’s another activity I don’t respect and particulary find loathesome, but I do acknowledge that persons of such loathesome activities do exist and some of them even employed to do so. The world is in some areas quite a sick place and enter the realm of political associations and it becomes as cruel and diseased as human activity can be when/if the motives of how, what, why are not considered with ethical value — or worse, by individuals who assign cryptic ethical values to those motives (example, “it’s good to do wrong,” “it’s beneficial to lie/misrepresent” and similar).
I value my name, Susan Elizabeth Rice, and my nickname, Suzy Rice — which I have used since the age of four when I first learned to write; my name sounded like that to me, thus, when learning to read and write, that’s how I first spelled it and the nickname has stayed with me since that very young age and used throughout my life ever since then, often in print as credit for creative work.
But at this rate, “Suzy Rice” has been assumed in use by a myriad of other persons. I only speculate that some in using it do so for nefarious, misleading purposes, attempting to misrepresent the real person by associating it with discourteous if not contrary views, whatever, but I of course can understand that it’s a handy identity for others if within, only, the realm of a large population of human beings named whatever, the percentages of names, etc., eventually the same identities appear numerous times.
I urge others to, please, not assume registrations at whatever other sites belong to me, nor their activities, on first blush. I don’t use the internet for gossip — I loathe and despise gossip — and I don’t use the internet for general chatter except on the very few sites I’ve listed above (mainly, this one, suzyrice.com, and my other domain, suzyriceimage.com, and on twitter as “suzy_rice”).
My active user accounts are:
“suzy_rice” at twitter.com;
“suzyrice” at my gmail address at linkedin.com;
“suzyrice” at my gmail account with profile;
I am listed on wikipedia by “Suzy Rice” a/k/a as Susan Elizabeth Rice;
Not active on facebook.com;
I have and use two domains, “suzyrice.com” (you are here) and “suzyriceimage.com” and no others.
I’m not active anywhere else with my identity or otherwise.
