Everybody has a habit of googling their own name.
Well, at least sometimes. Maybe when you are in a wrong sort of mood, on a rainy evening, alone, after a glass of red wine.
I, with my last name having made up to No.25 in the frequency top, and my ubiquitous first name, never actually stood any chance of being noticed. But to discover that your full name has been given to a terrorist boss and a leader of the Ultranationalist faction in a shooter game is way over the top. It’s like being named Osama Hitler. ‘Ultranationalist’ is the bitterest piece of irony in the whole circus, with an ugly man in the game muttering “i will fight back” and “god is with us”. It’s as if your very name turned against you and joined the conservative posse.
I can only wonder how the creators of the game chose this combination without giving a thought to thousands of Russians sharing it.
ah yes, a slight relief – the guy’s Vladimir R. Makarov, and I’m Vladimir S. Makarov (here’s a nice way to beef up the use of keywords on a page, take it Google!) And I’m not going “to begin a war of terror against Europe”. Am retired vvvvindow cleaner and pacifist, without doing war crimes. And what do I do by do by do and what do I mean by wasting your time like this? Good night.
