To those of you that this concerns:
Why do some of you re-register with a different username?.
Sure, I've said some pretty silly things in the 4 years I've been here, but nothing would propell me to change my username.
It seems to me that everytime that one of you newer guys seem to make a (so-called) mistake here, you re-register with a new name.
I'd like to have some sort of constant here.
I'm not against you guys and I thank you for your time, but, what gives?.

Well, I was planning on changing mine, unless I can change my e-mail address.

My e-mail's all jacked up.

I registered with my real name, thought about changing it so that I could post stuff more anonymously, but haven't bothered.

I started with a 'handle', but I typed it in the wrong blinking box, so it's too late now! As to mistakes, well, I must be near the top of the list for typos, spelling errors, not realising no politics at first, un-funny jokes, crass questions and jamming up Pauluk's e-mail box with non-jpeg pics (!) - and does anyone criticise that? Of course not, you're all real gentlemen!

I won't change mine.

It comes from my mother, who yelled this at me when she chased me around the yard for doing something stupid when I was a tot.

I have no clue what it means, but I like it.

When saying my name you must say it with authority and prefferably an echo. It really help my superhero complex.
