Do you ever have the desire to correct someone's username when you type it? The ones that should have punctuation make me

Then again I'm usually a little

I should also have an apostrophe! When I signed up I didn't know if an apostrophe was a "special character" and if it was allowed...so I omitted it.

My user name drives me insane because of it. And the "ain't" word.

Yes! Baxter, like you! Yours also drives me nuts because I feel weird shortening it, because I know that Baxter is your dog, so I feel weird calling you Baxter

That's why I picked a nice easy username that everyone could shorten and wouldn't look weird.

I always read authenticnow as "authentic-cow" I have no idea why I drop the N.

Sorry AN,

Plus I have a hard time with UR_AN_IDIOT. I have to shorten her name because I feel like Im calling her an idiot

Sorry UR.

I have to shorten idiot85 to I85 for the same reason, but then his name sounds like a highway to me.

Sorry I85

I love my screen name. I can work it into many sentences IRL. It's my own little private joke

Course it was my nickname as a kid.

I always have trouble with DS's name. But only because when I see it on one of my posts...I assume I have screwed up and am in trouble.

It's okay, I've been called worse . You're not the first one to say that, btw. Not sure why the N goes away for a lot of people!

I can't type can'tlivewithouth without the apostrophe!

I kept reading DS's name as DEEPLY SACRED. Idk why. I thought maybe she was really religious.

I also read Lady Kevorkian the same way.

And I'm glad to learn who Baxter is.

Authentic Now. Yes I take the N out still.....

I'm blaming the left handed, dyslexic, ADD brain that I have. Good to know I am in good company.

I wish now that I would have thought of something different, but it's who I was at the time, and being that person helped me to get through the hard stuff.
I no longer play with rears for a living, but hold that aspect of my career in a special place always.

Me too. Sorry, Lady_V! (On a sidenote, found out that Vorkosigan is apparently an awesome Saga series of sci-fi novels... )

I also have trouble knowing which names to capitalize or not. I try to do it based on how the user wrote it, but it's still weird to leave people lowercase. I began uppercasing my own, "Silver", when I sign off, so... *shrugs*

I seem to recall a story where that is what she meant, but made a typo on a registration. I assume that was at the other board before starting SI (since I am also assuming MH could fix it).

Oh that poor girl, the mounties are going to taser her for obstructing rail traffic.
