---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q1: So tell us a little about your name, why you chose it, what it means, etc.

It's not too earth-shaking. It's just a username on an internet forum. platorepublic, because I happen to be reading Plato's Republic at the time. The book, on the other hand, is earth-shaking.

Q2: Tell us a little about your avatar. Does it mean anything special to you?

I guess I typed 'Plato Republic' on Google Images.

Any eagerness to answer didn't shine through in your responces. Some of the answers I thought "ah, I like that", others I thought "why bother answering?".

Just my two cents.Smile

Well perhaps there was no eagerness to ask, so I thought it was appropriate.
