I'm curious, following the live chat with Dr Tanya Byron.. what happens if their name already a used nickname?

For example Nadine Baggott is a used nickname, if she was to be a guest speaker what would you do? (I'm sorry to keep using you)

I'm sure there was a Joanne Lumley as well (although I don't quite know what she would be giving a live chat about)

What happens? Tech? Justine?

Fortunately so far we've never had to deal with this (can see stampede now of folks going off to choose celeb names - Please NO grin). I guess we'd just have to prefix it with words or numbers The RealNadine Baggott/Joanna Lumley1. The we'd have to ask - politely of course - the Mumsnetter with the name to behave on the day and hope for the best!

Fortunately we have no plans in the near future for an online chat with the real margosbeenplayingwithmynoonoo (we did try but sadly they weren't available)

Any chance that I'd be asked to give an online chat?

You mean you haven't approached a well known brand of low calorie Dutch cheese for a live webchat? Damn. I was looking forward to that one.

Pah, I've not been asked either. And to think I got my kit off in that French version of Lady Chatterley too hmm

We need Tom Cruise. Such an expert on PND!

LRonHubbard Tue 11-Sep-07 10:48:21

Tom Cruise knows EVERYTHING. He is my appointed representative on your puny planet. You should obey EVERY diktat sent down by him. And John Travolta.

I'm happy to do a live chat and give all these lovely ladies the benefit of my expertise

for a fee grin

chipmonkey Thu 13-Sep-07 23:57:42

I always thought you should start charging for your common sense anyway Nadine!grin

hunkermunker Thu 13-Sep-07 23:59:35

Do the people who do the live chats type their own posts?

Can you not get them to dictate to someone who can

I'll do it, if you like. Maybe. I type at light speed.

hunkermunker Thu 13-Sep-07 23:59:42

Or quicker.
