Poll question: What should I do!?!?!
Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 06:03 PM by SouthoftheBorderPaul
I just got another email from someone in the Far East. He originally introduced himself as Wayne. However, after a brief exchange, he now tells me his real name is Wuji. Should I:

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

Edit: Okay, I would not find the thread with the guy who made the video wall for a right wing convention and "customized" the images. If anyone can find the thread, please post the link.

Basically the guy pulled a little prank and was planning something a little more impactful (but my no means dangerous). He posted too much info about the convention, i.e. the city, state and facilty name perhaps, and Freepers called the facility to warn them. The facility tracked the DUer's employer down and he ended up getting fired. I think his handle is WallGuy.

21. Glad you liked it....So, did you buy one?
I co-wrote most of the songs on there with a guy named Wuji. Does that add extra incentive?

29. Chavez did the cover art;
KoolZip played bass; the name of the band is NOT the Human Race. What are you waiting for!?!!?

PS: Did you ever notice that the proper way to phrase that question is "For what are you waiting?"

8. I don't like your choices. If Wuji is his name it's his name.
Paul or Jack might sound ridiculous to him. How ethnocentric can one be?

15. Do you even speak his language?
Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 06:03 PM by neweurope
I've noticed more than once that Americans tend to make fun of things they don't comprehend. More Americans than other people don't speak any language but their own and they often tend to make fun of other people's languages. I don't think that's funny, I think it's pitiful. At best.

20. Yes and no. If you detest the sound of his name break off the contact.
And go home and feel ashamed of yourself. Jesus.

24. *feels relief* American and European humor sure are different. So forgive

26. You're right...humor does not always translate!
Short stay in Frankfurt, actually. Next time i'm in Germany, we'll have to plan a European DU meet up. We'll be the envy of the entire Lounge!

25. I deal with this now and then...
Some of our customer's customers are international, and it seems very common for Asians to adopt an "American" name for use with non-Asians. Danny Fujimoto or Lance Ng or whatever. I think it's an attempt to be considerate to us stupid Americans who can't pronounce a foreign name properly to save our lives.

I think giving you his "real name" is probably to be considered a compliment.

It fouls me up sometimes because they'll place the order using their Asian name, then contact me for a follow-up using just their American first name... So I'm searching for "Danny" when it's actually under Wuji or something...

Just try to pretend you're talking to Wojo from Barney Miller...

I may have to figure out how to make this a sigline graphic without being annoyingly large.

In the meantime:
