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.

I quite like a nickname. I'm on here a lot, but not that prolific. When someone actually calls me "Sitting", I get quite excited.

EndoplasmicReticulum Fri 25-Jan-13 22:51:17

You can call me ER. It's easy. Sometimes I am rough, and sometimes I am smooth.

TheSecretCervixDNCOP Fri 25-Jan-13 22:52:05

People either refer to me as Secret or Cervix, it does not bother me smile

NickNacks Fri 25-Jan-13 22:57:43

I did snort the other day when BOF was shortened to LesBO smile

I normally get called StickEm or Pointy.

StickEm sounds rude and I know there are a few other "StickEms" or similar around.

I like Pointy. Reminds me of Mr Pointy (Buffy reference for those who don't know).

Chaotic's fine smile

StickEmWithThePointyEnd Fri 25-Jan-13 23:04:43

Chaotic are you "ChaosTrulyReigns"?

I respond to grey but don't really think mine counts as long :-)

I get wanna or wannabe but theres a wannaBe so that gets confusing.

I will settle for goddess grin

Thegreylady - your names just trips off the tongue. I never think of you by a shortened name.

NoelHeadbands Fri 25-Jan-13 23:10:08

I get really irritated if people don't call me elHea, I don't know what's wrong with people tbh

I think I wrote mine badly TBH when I joined (knackered at the time and unable to think of anything witty). I am So.... Worn.... Out....but it obviously reads weirdly because I get called Sworn, Sow, and other things! grin.

deleted203 Fri 25-Jan-13 23:11:36

Not that I mind. Call me what you like, folks!

WorraLiberty Fri 25-Jan-13 23:14:11

There's someone called YouOldSlag isn't there?

I always felt uncomfortable shortening her name to Slag but it seemed weird addressing her as You as well grin

AreYouADurtBirdOrALadyBird Fri 25-Jan-13 23:17:30

I have a long name but you can just call me DurtBird.

norks me. I likes it smile

nagoo is a perfectly brilliant name for a LOVELY poster
I do get. Bit confused with all the chaoticw and chaoses, but then I remember to look for multiple posts and livelllly speeelinges

Startail Fri 25-Jan-13 23:23:59

Clearly I'm a Star.

Actually I didn't lurk long enough before posting to realise names get shortened, so I'm slightly embarrassed my NN isn't a little more modest.

I did have a non star NC for The Jubbilee, but it felt all wrong. I've got used to it.

I have to say Endoplasmic Reticlum is my favourite MN name.
(I had a rough time on an astronomy cause and found biology smooth sailing, way less maths).

ChaoticintheNewYear Fri 25-Jan-13 23:36:12

StickEm no I'm not smile

Reaa Sat 26-Jan-13 00:10:14

If I had a longer name I would only end up forgetting what I had called myself.

GhoulWithADragonTattoo Sat 26-Jan-13 00:14:25

Mine's quite long and I usually just get "Ghoul". I think the key point is the joke doesn't work if don't have all the words in it...

Kafri Sat 26-Jan-13 04:53:35

Ill take pretty much anything like I do in RL tho tbf I'm not sure what you'd shorten Kafri to. :-)

Lavenderhoney Sat 26-Jan-13 05:04:43

People do lavender to me, no lav as yetsmile

littlewhitebag Sat 26-Jan-13 06:03:32

ER grin <science geek>

I get Wankbadger. I also respond to Wank.
However, as with other posters if you're going to slag me off, full name please.

Someone referred to me as breakfast once and I was awfully confused.

StickEmUp Sat 26-Jan-13 06:36:36
