Copying Your Character and Following You Around is the Sincerest Form of Creepy Flattery

Commenter KingKellogg the Waffle Haggler encountered a Single White Female situation while playing online the other day, and wonders if you've ever had the pleasure of attracting creepy online dopplegangers in today's Speak Up on Kotaku.

So here I was playing Halo when one of the people who added me as a friend requested I play with them, so I do. But when I get there I notice something ...odd


The kid had started to copy me. He changed his Spartan's appearance to match mine; he copied my emblem and my service tag. Just to make it creepier he kinda stalk/protected me through the rest of our matches...

Anyone else had this happen?
