    falsely impersonates a person or entity; falsely misrepresents your affiliation with a person or entity;

This in particular is interesting to me. Is someone's online moniker a distinguishable/ownable enough item that "stealing" someone's online moniker constitutes false impersonation/false misrepresentation of affiliation?

Is there going to be conflict between that rule and the point in time when someone camps the handle of a notable personality from a different site, or impersonates them on hubski?
