I went from wurmburner to wurm. Guess I'm getting lazy in my old age. Plus, wurmburner was too formal among all the old friends here. :-)

I get to use the one I had since that other forum opened its doors.
That got banned by some weenie a$$ for posting the word "bull@#$%&".
Just before banning "ended".
BLM never responded to e-mails.
Idiot then complains about the forum not growing.

I changed mine.

I had been BigMac1964 as long as I have been at "the other place." I just felt like a change. Maybe I am going through another midlife crisis. Who the hell knows.

After thinking about it, I don't know if changing was such a good idea because I was sure happy to see all the familiar names here. If everybody changed theirs, we would all feel like strangers for a few posts.



I sit on a man’s back, choking him and making
him carry me, and yet assure myself and others
that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his
lot by all possible means — except by getting off
his back. - Leo Tolstoy, novelist and Philosopher
(1828-1910)

I figured "new forum, new username". On DealMac my last username was be_rad...

Maybe those who changed should all follow MacArtist's lead with their sig.
Or maybe this forum is like the witness protection program and they need a new identity. :-)

Kept mine the same. I use it in multiple different locations, so it's just easier for all involved (basically me).

I thought it was cute, too. Since we have a dead rat in another thread, we needed a bunny in this one.

I kept mine. I can't remember too many things at once, you know ... maybe I should check into a memory upgrade!

I use my real name for stuff like this because I wouldn't want to participate any place where I feel the need for to hide behind a handle. Anybody who knows his way around the internets could pretty quickly come up with my address and phone number, and that's fine with me. I'm much more likely to get punched in the nose by a stranger at a bar than by some crazy online stalker at my doorstep, and yet I still go to bars.

I don't trust people with changing usernames. If you won't personally stand behind what you say, I'm not so sure you deserve the freest of speech.

I'd kinda like to see somebody register The Løpe. Never ever post from it, of course, but I'd still like to see his name on the list. Is that evil?

Nah. I think it is kind of a nice thought, myself. kj.

btw, with a name like Mike Johnson, you're pretty much anonymous anyway. Heeey, I know Mike Johnson winking smiley

I kept mine, microchip15 doesn't have the same ring to it.


Unfortunatly, I think I screwed up creating some more user names because I accidentally sent one to my hotmail account.

Kept mine, for the same reason Mike Johnson stated.

If you feel the need to hide behind ever-changing nicks, then you aren't really standing behind what you're saying, and can't expect people to take you seriously...

I'd like to feel comfortable enough to do that, but I live in the same city as one or two of the creepiest people from the old forum.

I use the same nik, handle, alias, whatever you want to call it, everywhere I go.
It's easier for me than trying to remember who I'm supposed to be where...

And my real name is in my sig in every post anyway.

Like a few others, I'm not very creative so I just use my real name here like I did at that other forum.
