We saw off txtspk.
My name is not @Blu
All these posts starting @PosterXX are doing my head in.
Can we just use people's names?

And if a poster on another site told you to put your hand in the fire, you'd do that, too, NetworkGuy?
grin

It's always used WITH the name, so just creates an extra character - what is the point?

No, Blu, but it's not so uncommon as to be automatically banned just 'cos some people are stick in the muds don't like it. Much as with 'like', this seems to have got a vociferous group annoyed to a level above and beyond its worth.

It was on a laptop I packed away before I went into hospital. Had not responded earlier...

Haha at the six-month time lag before the response. It reminds me of the start of vol. 2 of Lord of the Rings: "Aragorn sped on up the hill." I wonder just how long he was speeding up the hill between publication of vol. 1 and vol. 2. I bet he was puffed out.

Mmm, sweaty Aragorn.
