Wow, tough crowd! Satire is obviously only 'ish.

I do love how we are now discussing the cultural development of Scotland!

Everyone knows that Camelot was just outside Boscastle in Cornwall, or Glastonbury in Somerset.

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.

C'mon, boboff - man up!

Anyway, why did you miss the opportunity for a "ban Smileys" comment?

Good point well made Mike!

They aren't however bothering me too much at the minute! I only really object to them being used passive agressively!

Right, I have changed my picture back to a currently living and reasonably representative image of myself, can’t do much about the name because mine is already taken, (although after a search, I can’t find a post for said individual). Not that I know what I am doing. No I’m not going to add my family name, and no I’m not going to add bits to my first name, anyone else want to follow suit?

Personally I think we should ban user names that refer to the users real name or a name that sounds like it might be the users real name. Oh, on second thoughts, perhaps we shouldn't.

I thought I wasn't allowed to post given my avatar. But my name I can explain . My brother is named Tommy and my Husband is named Tommy . It just felt a bit incestuous so I renamed my Husband. Does that count as an acceptable reason ?

And whilst we are at it, lets Ban Disney references and any character names from Dickens, and also having Avatars of your animals, especially if those animals are now dead........[/quote]


Especially if they've been dead a long time!

Well, I'm regularly Muddy, a practicing Witch & the cartoon is fairly acurate, so I think I'm safe. :dontknow: However my fondness for 'smileys' could be my undoing! :lol:

Before the internet the only 'usernames' or more correctly, nom de plumes, that I seen were 'Disgusted from Donegal'', 'Angry of Armagh' and 'Slighted of Sligo' stuff like that , in the letters column of the various papers national and local. The English press having perhaps more interesting ones like 'Unbalanced Uttoxeter', 'Bewildered Bognor' and 'Perplexed of Pinner'. The Scottish would grab the moral highground with scriptures from 'Presbyterian Procurator Pittgrudy' while the Welsh played linguistic games with 'Clever of Llanfair'.

A letter signed off by say, 'bill1953' would have been distainfully sniffed at and ignored by the discerning public.
