I’m not actually sure if this is a problem with the research or the reporting.

Basically, what it boils down to is that it is possible to tell if the person who is using an avatar account is the person who usually uses that avatar account by checking to see if they behave differently to how they usually do.

Well, thank-you Captain Obvious.

This is like getting an unusual and ungrammatical email from your brother, the English Lit professor, saying he’s mysteriously in London and been mugged and ‘coudl yuo sned lost of muney by wire trafsner imediattely’.

If someone’s behaving, writing or speaking completely differently, there’s a good bet that it isn’t them.
