# A double entendre (how do you prove that he si not he?)

You have DB and LB. Suddenly LB says he is DB. The next statement is
true for both:

``DB is being impersonated by LB``

Then somebody wants the *real* DB to say he is LB. But he doesn`t want
to. So the next statement is true:

``This is done by DB``

only if you refer to the *real* DB. But if it is done by the *real*
DB, the fake DB (the *real* LB), can claim it is his!

If you say ``DB is really LB`` it is both true and false according to
whom you are referring to! How do you brake the confusion?

How can you prove (logically) that the *real* DB is DB and not LB and
that the fake DB is *really* LB?

THIS PROBLEM WAS PROPOSED TO ME. REALLY.

(If you post and somebody else reroutes the packets and stores your
post first, and then you claim that this is happening, because the
time difference between both registered dates is the same, whatdo you
think other people would think?)

Regardless of what LB claims, LB is LB. A claim about an identity does
not affect the actual identity.

If you want to determine which one is DB and which is LB based only on
their statements, you better have some additional information.
In this case, start by looking at the post headers, there is a lot of
information that is included that can serve as hints.

If LB is really DB, I'd put'em at SS or nickel. If DB is really LB, I'd
move'm to OLB.
