Either way my suggestion would be to go find another field pronto and hope that none of these guys recognize you for your attitude/demeanor if they meet you one day.
Are there really people on this forum who are so vicious, they would hunt down a newbie who wrote a post which sounded conceited, and start a campaign to blackball that person from an entire field? That's really extreme. Also hard to imagine how this campaign would work... would you set up a booth at an SOA meeting and hand out flyers? The field isn't that
small, and I think it's a pretty small percentage that would be as interested as you are in figuring out who the OP is IRL. I think you're just enjoying trying to scare him, which is nasty.
