    The internet sure has democratized rackets. I suppose tire shops have always had the ability to strew the streets with screws and nails, but you used to need a mob to run "protection" scams. Would deploying variations on one's names for different professional and social purposes help lessen the risk of falling prey to something like this? Say, Michael Gladstone Whipple goes by "Mick Whipple" on social media, "Mike Whipple" on his personal site, M.G. Whipple on LinkedIn, and Michael Faux Whipple when shopping online—could that help?
