‘Baggy MP’ and the Online Sex Shop Mystery

Computer nerd Tom Watson’s online username is ‘BaggyMP’. Here is his Flickr account, his FriendFeed account, his online university account, and his Last.fm profile. All with the distinctive username “BaggyMP”.

There is an eBay account which coincidentally also uses the name BaggyMP. There is no suggestion Mr Watson used this account to access eBay. Guido doesn’t know for sure – unlike those internet accounts above the eBay account doesn’t provide a real name. Most of the purchases are pretty boring; musical instruments and toys for the owner’s kids etc. Except one. On February 13, 2005, “BaggyMP” left feedback for an online sex shop called Love Erotic that specialises in bondage gear and products like “male enhancer cream”. Apparently BaggyMP was delighted with his or her buy, commenting: “a very nice and unusual acquisition, thank you”. Whomever the eBay BaggyMP is, Guido hopes they had a happy Valentine’s Day…
