D - Full names

Guys

I know this is like a whinging old manager, but I wondered whether we could
all make sure to have full names on the posts as, in the abscense of picture
identiers on the posts, I am getting seriously confused (eg. between Andy
and Andrew - I know one has evident expertise, and the other professes to be
a newbie, but my feeble old mind is faltering ...)

Flame away you free spirits, you.

I know this might be a little out of context (considering where we are posting and to who), but I object it for one reason: I learned long ago that you aren't supposed to give your full name, ss number, telephone, address, etc. in the internet. And I've done everything I can to follow that, that's why I don't publish my full name.

But when in war! If I am captured, I am entitled to provide my name, rank,
and ssn. Though I won't provide my ssn over the internet, I see no reason
for not sharing my name.

To all! It has is a pleasure to have stumbled upon this program and this
newsgroup. Thanks for not kicking me out though I might seem utterly
confused and almost always lost!

Sure. I wasn't trying to strong arm anyone, or start a flame or anything.
Just seeking clarity of thought by dint of more explicit identification.
I'll stumble on with half a brain ...

Indeed.

Furthermore, it seems little optimistic that if someone wanted to hunt you
down, they would not be able to do so irrespective of your obfuscating
pop-star-like one-name nom de plum on this little arena

Andrew, it's a pleasure to see you on the group. Just stop apologising for
not knowing anything. Strewth (that's being pretending to be an Aussie!), I
don't know anything, and I'm editing the Journal! ;)

I always post using the nickname OddesE... I am seriously thinking about changing that habit though... However I also post on other groups where giving away my full name is something I wouldn't do as easily as here. I know, I know, everyone *could* go here, but in fact, they don't. At least now I am always using the same nickname everywhere, so I can be easily recognised. And OddesE is not a name I see used often... Stijn is my real first name though.
