This template is for these "Doppelganger" accounts, created by legitimate users to avoid being impersonated by vandals. Many users have been impersonated by imposters such as the "Doppelganger" vandal. The vandals use various tricks to create an account name which appears identical to the impersonated user's account name. Often, this takes the form of replacing capital "I's" with lowercase "L's" and vice versa.
