: : : : Some time ago ESC suggested bracketing our country name against our nom de plumes, in order to give others a better idea of our origins. I thought it was a good idea and did it for a while, then got lazy.

: : : : But another good idea that I notice some people such as Smokey, David G and SR do, is place their initials at the end of their comments.

: : : : I know I'm a slow learner and it's taken me a while to register this. But when replying to a long thread, sometimes I reply to comments further up the chain but can't remember who made them. So I have to go keep clicking back to find out. However, when people place their initials at the end of the comments - I can see instantly who made them.

: : : : So maybe this is a good habit for us to get into???

: : : I tried it once, but I spelled Pennsylvania wrong so I gave up. But Pennsylvania is too long to type, so I won't try it again, but I will try signing my posts. Hmmm. BfS? Nah. Brian. Yeah.

: : : --Brian.

: : Isn't the plural of nom de plume noms de plume?

: : TF (obstreperous)

: I think it discrimnates against nomads.

: Camel
: a.k.a SOTD

Haha, didn't mean to discriminate - and thanks for the tip obstreperous. And my apologies - after making this suggestion, I forgot to do it myself. Sheesh - you just can't get good help these days. As for Brian's problem, isn't there state abbreviation for Pennsylvania?

Oh and Word Camel what's an SOTD? ...Goddess
