I suppose it's just me

    ...but I really do wish those posting would have a usable name as their signature. Many do in fact sign off with a real name but I find it very difficult to address someone as Middlewallopcanonuser or similar if they do't. It's probably me being old fashioned but I do like calling people by name. It would also help if members filled in their bio's, even a sketchy outline would be better than nothing.

    I know the bio thing has been mentioned before but a nudge might help.

    Not just you Brian. I like to call people by name where possible, and some of them are just plain weird, especially the ones where they're just a mix of numbers and letters. I know they mean something to the user, but how about putting an actual name in the signature/bio (Doesn't have to be their real name)

    At least Fen works as a name. Fabs is my nickname, but at least mine isn't fabsxyz16tgifridays!! /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Ah but your real name is in your title :D

    And anyway, Bagpuss is fine as a name, it is pronounceable if spoken. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    PS, give my regards to professor Yaffel!

    I thought that last payment of Bushmills was supposed to stop you mentioning that!

    It would be wonderful and make things so much simpler if every man was called Alan and every woman was called, oh I dnno, Alana. That'd make things simple and I'd never forget anyone's name. :D

    PS - Remember that Monty Python sketch and everyone was called Bruce? :D
  13. Fen

    Fen The Destroyer

    No Bruce. Don't remember that one at.

    Hey Bruce, do you remember the Monty Python sketch where everyone was called Bruce?

    No Bruce, I don't, but maybe Bruce will remember that one...

    But what if the person's real name identifies them as someone who is rich and/or famous and as such they wish to remain anonymous?

    I mean I definitely don't want people to refer to me as your Lordship etc, on here I am just one of the boys.

    I see your point...

    I wouldn't want everyone to know who I really am, or how great my legs are...

    ...............and I certainly don't want to get the girls all in a lather by admitting that I'm really George Clooney! :eek: :D ;)

    ..................only his closest friends are allowed to call him David......................the rest of us respectfully refer to him as "your majesty" or "your Steeliness" :eek: :D ;)
