2. I'd understand it if people were named something like "ImpeachNOW" or JVS2002
But this is ridiculous.

yes. I think that was the point with some a lot of them -- To be ridiculous was their intention and they have succeeded.

9. Oh, well
Edited on Sat Jan-24-09 10:29 AM by Pierre.Suave
there was someone here the other day named Pierre.Smooth who is half of the inspiration for my silly new name, and after being a jerk to everyone, we started being jerks back, so he responded to EVERYONE with, "youre not my type."

He also used quotes around random words in his rantings, which was quite amusing. I guess it is important to have seen that to get the joke.

it is nothing personal to you.
