Have you been given a nick name for your screen name...
That other posters call you by? I've been called Long for short and occasionally Grainy, and some people call me LG. I've even had one or two posters call me Pete or Petey, which is my real name...

So who else here has a nickname...

15. HAHA!
Only joking about the BIG line. I picked my screen name kind of quickly b/c I thought when I first joined that I should put something close to my name. I never really lurked here, I just joined and started in on the fun. Then I find out that so many people have so many great names.

21. I'm usually 4legs
which is fine. I might be the only person, though, who usually signs posts with his/her real name. It's a typing e-mail reflex, I guess.

36. Jukes used to call me Sin Nombre or something like that
Maggie, Kleeb and their ilk call me Christina, even though I'm a guy. Which is why you never tell Maggie your real name. And Hedges calls me Son sometimes, which is a little, um, different.

Probably the main reason I changed my name last year was that I was tired of people calling me "mom". Unless you grew in my uterus, I don't want you calling me mom. Just my little hangup I guess. :D
