Twice over the last couple of days I've come across Mudcat names that were new to me only to find the people behind them were 'Cats I knew quite well!

Is there a way we can be told if someone has changed their name? I appreciate some may wish others not to know, but it would still be helpful.

Gargoyle, I actually like your posts they hold a kind of reptilian fascination, but I really wish that you would try to proof-read them for spelling mistakes.

Or are you legally dyslexic and therefore deserving of our sympathy?

Murray,

Do we dyslexics have to be legally certified now? When did this happen? Does it apply to Australians as well? Maybe I should register.

Years ago I heard a story, which may be an urban legend, about one of the best tv sports commentators Oz has ever had. He was in a bar one day and a man approached him and started telling him that his sports comments were "one-eyed", i.e. prejudiced.

Norman May then took out his glass eye, put it on the bar and said "The drinks are on you, mate!"

So, I think the drinks are on you, mate!

I'll have a red wine, and I'm not sure what gargoyle would prefer. Step up to the bar and we'll tell you all about it over a friendly drink.

What a silly statement. "Weak" because many of us have chosen monikers that in fact give some information about ourselves? Or that honor individuals or traditions that we respect? I don't think so.

This particular name is also used as one of my email addresses, and I never get spam there. It doesn't fall within the conventions of a regular name (first and last, or first initial and last, etc.) that the spammers run through their mail address programs trying to find viable addresses of So-And-So@______ (here place the name of each major provider Earthlink, AOL, Prodigy, etc.) so they can sell their penis-lengthening programs, or offer me a deal I can't refuse on refinancing my home or gambling in the Caribbean.

I was nice last time, but I'm not feeling so nice now. Please, leave off criticising spelling and grammar belonging to dyslexics - me included.

It gives off a sort of arrogant air of superiority, which is totally inappropriate and misplaced when referring to people who have a *different* brain circuitry to your own.

Please read the dyslexia thread I provided a clicky for, try to understand it from our viewpoint, and then have the good grace to be courteous about people who are different to yourself.

Diversity is the spice of life.

Stilly River Sage: Thanks for letting us know about your name. I'm relatively recent here & had been wondering - lovely reasoning!

My name comes from a song I sing but I've been thinking about changing it as it can easily be misread & misinterpreted as some form of arrogance. Whereas it really just reflects an ID problem. Possibly weak, growing with confidence now though :-)

May you always have music....

Just a general comment because the opportunity presented itself-- not directed to anyone who's posted in this thread:

Telling someone who identifies in a particular way (i.e. "dyslexic") that they do not SEEM to be that way is not actually helpful, usually. I think it is meant reassuringly, but what it can feel like is, "Oh, don't worry, I don't see you as like THEM!". In other words, the person is acceptable as long as they aren't "too THIS" or too "too THAT"... as long as they can fit in-- be on their toes to meet an external standard.... "pass" as being like "everyone else" (in other words, "everyone" in the dominant group). It indicates that there is a bias, but it isn't being applied to them.

This operates with all groups, in fact, and helps divide people off from one another. It divides up people within groups, too. Notice how black people will stratify according to how dark-skinned, how kinky their hair is, how educated they are-- how "black" they are.   

A simple and common example is, "I usually don't like women, but you're OK; you're not like other women." To a woman, this translates to, "Don't be too much like however I've stereotyped women, and we'll get along just fine." Or, "All men are pigs-- except you, because you're not like THEM."

Don't see what I mean? PM me if you can learn without being defensive, and we can talk.

This started as a straight forward request since I'd come across two or three who had changed their MUDCAT names ( mine comes from a family nickname).

It seemed silly to me to start asking the Who? Where? What? questions of people I already knew - but it seems to have gone totally the wrong way :-(((

I almost wish there were a "Start New Thread" link right next to the "Reply to Thread" box. Or maybe it could be an "And now for something completely different" link.

It seems too much trouble for people to start a new one when they're going to post off topic, or maybe they have no idea how many people are going to want to discuss their pet peeve (it is ALWAYS going to be a load of 'em) instead of the subject.

Thanks, WYSIWYG. You said what I was feeling very well, but hadn't had time to analyse and put into words.

My posts don't *look* dyslexic because I see what I have typed and change it before I hit send - "dyxlesic" "becasue" etc. Computers have helped me a lot compared with handwriting and typewriting, where mistakes have to be scrubbed out or whited out and then it all gets so messy.

Ladies, ladies -- has the holiday stress eroded your sense(s) of humor?

Thread name is Tell us when you change name - please

That's inviting, in more than one way, to those of us who are posessed of a certain sort of wit. 1. it invites cracks like catspaw's, Art's and mine. 2. it begs the question: how much sense does it make to ask people who use internet pseudonyms to announce when they change them???

Have a chuckle, and enjoy your holidays.
