It's true that there's no technical means to prevent impersonation from
happening, and we generally don't try to implement technical solutions
to social problems.

That doesn't change the fact that the people who are impersonating
others here are being assholes and are preying on vulnerable members of
our community.  The impersonators should stop being malicious and they
should know that they are not acting in the best interests of our
community.

Relatedly -- please pick a new pseudonym, "Cynthiajustin
Jakefrantisekdoer".
