Pet Peeve of Mine

stouthm

Get over it
I'm not trying to stir things up with this thread, it's something that I've wanted to say for a while but never got around to it.

If a person puts their signature at the end of their thread than I think that we should refer to that person by that name and not their user name. My signature is Pop Pop, not stouthm. If you take the time to read the thread and they took the time to put their signature on the thread than at least refer to them by their signature. Sorry for this minor rant, it was something that bugged me.

As you wish, Pop Pop.;)
 
stouthm aka Pop pop

The convention has alway been to refer to a person by their user name. Didn't you know this when you chose 'stouthm. Why change it. If you prefer another name, petition Auran to change your user name to 'Pop Pop'. What is wrong with 'stouthm', it is no sillier than 'Pop Pop' which I guess is not your actual name anyway so it can't be your signature. Do you sign your cheques as 'Pop Pop'

If your real name is Bill or andrew, whatever, and want to be called by that, that is acceptable, but 'Pop Pop'

I shall always think of you fondly as 'stouthm'

Cheers

You can call me anything, but never call me Late For Dinner. That's my Brother's name.
 
OK, my bad. I didn't realize that not everyone signed with just their name. I didn't take my own advice and check others sigs. I guess I'll be stouthm and be happy with it. Sorry for my little quirk.
 
Don't forget that many of us have the signatures feature turned off, so we don't even see that repetitive clutter in forum threads.

This is also my situation. unless you change your name to Pop Pop, you in my eyes will be stouthm, I am not going to try to remember you as Pop Pop. Actually I like the name stouthm a lot more, your other name reminds me of a girl I dated ! :)

S'okay. Everybody needs to vent now and then.
I answer to either one if you feed me a cookie.

Ginger? :confused:

People get me confused with Gregg, Grey, George, Jeff(ry), or any other name with a "J" or "G" sound at the begining. People will also occasionaly mistake me for a 'Patrick'?!

Otherplaces (LiveJournal, Photobucket) I'm known as Taranabug, or Tbug for short. I've also been known to respond to "Hey, you!", "Learn to drive Jerk!" and "Agent 03". :hehe:

My self appointed nickname is 'The Bugman' (I'm an entomologist). For Trainz, either my username or 'The Bugman' will catch my attention.
