Because it is too easy to claim being someone when hidden behind a comp screen.
Moreover, it is illegal to usurp someone else's identity.

He is the real deal as far as I can tell, he has yet to post anything that would make me think otherwise.

Yep, as I said earlier, what he's said here is consistent with his history elsewhere on other forums, his personal history and relationships, and official interviews and books.

The problem with lying is it takes a lot of effort to keep track of all those lies to maintain a consistent front.  While it's not impossible, liars tend to trip up on consistency issues sooner or later.

Also, the internet has no laws on impersonating people to my knowledge.  It's a largely unregulated medium mostly owing to the cross-border nature of the beast.  Identity theft is a problem but even where those laws apply, it's about financial gain and I've yet to see any attempts to make money off this poster being 'Kurt Busiek' unless it were to make us buy Busiek's books, which only benefits the real Kurt Busiek.

Local forums may have policies against impersonating others, but those are hardly legal matters.  As Super Monkey said, our moderator is satisfied this is not an impersonation so that satisfies our local rules.

Even if he weren't the real deal, the person posting as Kurt Busiek here is a fascinating and well-thought out individual who's fun to talk to.  His POV is worthwhile discussing regardless if he chose to post under a pseudonym like ... oh ... Kal-L.  He certainly hasn't made any big reference or spelling blunders as some posters have innocently made, no names mentioned.

It doesn't make a whole lot of difference to me if someone thinks I'm me or an impostor, but if it'll satisfy...

Page 8, panel 4 of CONAN #23, out next month, begins "The voice had been like dust.  And ice.  And rot."

The book isn't printed yet, so if anyone wants to check that when it comes out, that'll make it clear I'm either me, or possibly another part of the CONAN staff, pretending to be me for unknown reasons.  But not Joe Shlbotnik from Somewhereelseville, USA, at least.

If I'm that lucky, put your money on whatever I bet on...
