Dubious Pseudonyms

  -pops- 08:30 08 Mar 2003

I'm no prude but I've noticed recently an increasing number of nom-de-plumes consisting puns or slight modifications of words and phrases that can only be considered less than acceptable in polite society.

This forum is supposed to be a family show so, folks, think about what you choose as a nickname and those who already have one of those names, think about changing it - you know who you are!

Agree Brian. There are also a lot of daft ones with complex strange symbols over/under letters that are completely impossible to reply to by name.

The problem with the complex ones (mine included) is that they do not display on some systems, eg the 'tick' after 'graham' becomes a box. If they are displayed correctly you can copy and paste them.

-pops- yes, I think most people will agree, perhaps the FE could have a quiet email with the culprits and stop their chocolates.

I was not thinking about yours Graham, rather straightforward. But what about (and I do my best to put them in some language you can understand) Fatboy, Crash and A Nickname. The prize goes to the member who posted Praise of Pipex ADSL Server on 22/2 and there's an even stupider one which I cannot find. What are they trying to prove?

I think a lot of them originate whilst under the influence of mind bending substances (legal or otherwise). That is the reason that a number of them make their premiere appearance late on a Friday or Saturday night.

When thought up, they may seem hilarious but, considered in a more sober light they are silly, rude and sometimes insulting.
