I REPORT MYSELF FOR CALLING BRIAN "MR. SMARTY PANTS"!
PLUS I AIMED THIS SMILEY AT HIM :

Confession is good for the soul

I think I'll leave the monitoring of others' behavior up to themselves and the Moderators...

When people get into exchanges on a forum, addressing themselves by their screen names it always sounds like dogs talking to each other.

LOL Francesca I know I just wrote it off to someone having a bad day!

Re the use of screen names - I actually think the use started well before porn hit the internet or Internet Explorer was even developed for that matter - Microsoft was actually a little slow at getting into the internet game as I recall. Way back then we did not have web pages with lots of pictures instead we had what was known then as newsgroup. People often used screen names, for privacy as they were researchers, Univ. profs and students or reporters who were often questioning policies and other researchers findings. Those where also the days when file sharing involved downloading dozens of seperate little bits of files and then putting them all together on your hard drive to make a usable file! It was not any more legal then than it is today! :-)

Heavens to Murgatroid!!!
I see now that I spelled Byron's name wrong...
My confession is flawed and incomplete.
It's B-Y-R-O-N.
Whew...

Thanks for the history lesson, Carol...
The subject of internet growth really is of great interest to me. Who (besides Al Gore ) could have predicted that it would become as monolithic in our lives as it's turned out to be?
It even induced ME to learn to type...

Wonders truly will never cease

....and then there were the CB'ers who went by 'handles' instead of their real names.

Nom de plumes have been used for centuries. And many actors adopted screen names. Why not us too. We write, we act up...

I am very glad that we can use screen names here now.

I am not ashamed to use my real name. I'm proud to say that it's been mine for over 70 years and I hope to use it for another 20 or 30 years. I'll not hide behindsomething made up.

Started with porn? I didn not realize that. I only use this screen name because when you search my name all you get is porn.... Unfortunately for me,my name is the same as a dot.com for a gay porn site which I can assure you that I have no affiliation with. "Not that there is anything wrong with that"(Seinfeld). Anyway I use the Gumpit name because it is also my email. I am not ashamed of my name but by not using it does cut down on some emails. Do I at least get a pass for not using my name for what I think is a sensible reason not to use it? Randy Blue

We've compromised on the "real name" requirement, and I think it's a good one. Allowing aliases or "handles" does make it easier for people to come up with unique usernames (which is a system requirement). Because your first name is also stored in your user profile, other members can easily address you as Randy instead of Gumpit. Best of both worlds.

My own name is very common, so googling it returns many, many false hits. Allowing usernames that are aliases (pseudonyms) alleviates this for most people; also, of course, many people use a pseudonym on other sites (which may not be as personally friendly as ours) and it is easier to remember one's login if there's consistency across sites. (Of course, we don't really recommend using the same password everywhere!)

I hope this helps - to each his own, as they say.

Here's a hoot-

My honest to goodness real/given/legal name, first and last, exactly as it appears with my Avatar, is also...(drum roll, please)...

.................... !!! THE "PROFESSIONAL" NAME OF A WELL KNOWN PORN STAR !!!

And I'm pretty sure that I'm causing more trouble for HER than she is for ME
What must her- um......FANS!... think about "her" bizarre interest in Fiberglass Trailers?

I'll probably get a "cease-and-desist" Lawyer Letter any day now...

I see you have noticed the gallery images


The Historian account was created because we needed to move images stored in the old gallery here into the new gallery that you see at the top of the page. Those old images were uploaded long ago by site admins and were loaded often on behalf of other members. Members can now load images themselves but we didn't want to lose those old images. Since images have to be assigned to a members account we created this one. If yo find that one of those images is yours please let us know and we will happily reassign it.

I always really like that we could see a persons name and I think it keeps people nicer.
Picked my name because I really live in Texas.

Welcome to the Club, Dennis in Texas, and I'd just like to say that I want one of those One-Texan-Horsepower trailers like the one in your Avatar Picture

Francesca

P.S.

I hope it comes with the Texan...
