I don't mind the occasional request for a name change. Though I will convey it with less spittle, I'm right up there with Bob in encouraging folks to use their real names, or recognizable playa names. I use Technopatra because more folks know me under that name than "Nicole".
I would like to see, as much as possible, folks willing to be themselves here, say who they are and what they stand for, stand by their words and act here in the same manner they would in a lve setting. I'd like everyone to be real get the sense that they are meeting and interacting with other real people.
