I logged in to my twitter account which had a new message from a stranger. He said he found me via bitcointalk.org but that he wanted to message me outside of the forum to go undiscovered by moderators. ?? 
He offered to buy my bitcointalk.org account for a sum of .08 btc.   While I was momentarily tempted,  I decided to block the user, but I can't help but wonder what type of mischief this character is looking for?  I have been working on increasing my credibility and reputation for too long to sell it... but how many of our trusted members are merely purchased accounts?  Is there any way to measure who is who?  What does it say about the value of the higher status members in terms of genuine trustworthiness?   Does this happen to EVERYONE? 


There are many people out there looking for old accounts to buy, mainly to use the alreadily built reputation to make money.

i think it's a pretty simple explanation really.

unlike almost everyone else here, your profile is linked to what seems to be a real world identity. that promotes trust. more scam possibilities.

Thank you for a helpful and insiteful response.  It matters!!  I am growing out of a naive place,  thanks to the extreme nitpicking around all of these unique people.
