I'm so glad this came up. (Said the actress to the bishop...)
I've been posting all along as PJ, a conveniently typable nickname my dad hung on me long ago. I recently went to apply for official citizenship in Mudland, by registering the name by which I have become known to other Mudders. Sadly my petition for naturalization was denied because there was another PJ out there somewhere.
Dejected and unwilling to relinquish my onscreen identity, I slunk (is that a word?) back across the border.
I continue to post as an illegal alien in your village, dreaming of the day when I can register and become a productive member of society.
Meanwhile, my questions are these...
1) Are you still out there PJ, although you do not post? If so, come back to the fold, dear, and free me from this false hope of one day finding the name available to me.
2) Is there a statute of limitations on the life of a 'Catters registered name? Joe?
3) If it's time for me to move on and become someone other than PJ, who shall I be? 'Catters, help! My identity is circling the drain and I need somebody to throw me a line. (Other than a bad pickup line....)
I am, sincerely yours,
The Woman Without a Country (or Western) The Bodhran Identity Pee Jay just me ?
