To get irritated with MNs who have very long nickcnames with peculiar spellings. I like to say Hi to the person I am "talking" to especially when there are a lot of people on the same thread, but I get fed up of really long ones eg. Ilikeorangesbutdontlikelemons - I made that one up and it's easy enough to just call her "Oranges&Lemons" but sometimes there are wierd ones that are long with peculiar spellings too, and no easy to shorten.

Just call me Keema grin.

I have a namelike you OP...andI get called Nanna a lot. smile

I mainly get Gold. Once called Doors and I didnt know who they were talking to.

GPND works just as well.

I shall call you Nana

I use either the first bit or the last bit.

I also don't like people with Fat in the name or something not very nice as I don't want to offend people grin

Why not just highlight, copy then paste the name into your reply?
You can highlight it by adding a * before and after it.

I'm the same as Usual -Barred is fine unless you are having a bitch, the full name is then of course required (well it'd be rude not to grin )

Hi , I'm Doi or tourist

See, I like Goo.

I ought to reconsider my capitalisation strategy.

Does it matter though? I just pick a bit out of the name [lazy]

When I add bits to the name and people call me by the bits, I don't recognise myself.

IN nobdie threads there's a 4 letter protocol. My favourite was tidybaby who requested we call her dyba. smile
