4. My name. It was boring. This one has a story. Wanna hear?
In a discussion board about auto racing I was a member of (and still am to this day) there was a rabid freeper (although I didn't know of the term yet) who went about insulting just about anybody who he perceived to be to the left of Augusto Pinochet. A truly insuferable dork. He called me a "Commie Pinko Dirtbag".

Just for kicks, I googled the phrase. One of the hits was a page called "Auntie Pinko", which piqued my curiosity. It was mid-2001. The rest is history.

It's only fitting that I wear this name as a badge of honor. In fact I was planning to change to it when I reach 10,000 posts, but this way is much better.
