Hi A lyn,
What more is there, age 42, weight 12.12, shoe size 11 UK, hair brown, eyes brown, height 6ft, colour light tan, vehicle ford, home house. Is that enough for you?
I had a great day thankyou, A Lyn - saw a moose (in a photograph)- spent some time in garden with my dogs - watched Richard harris singing mcarthurs park - had a great meal - found some common-ground with krumple - met a trapeze artist (online) - listened to roger waters' tide is turning (live in berlin version) wrote some verses - fed and watered my vegetables and fruit trees - made a trifle - did a bit of research - chatted to you, and got ripped to shreds by some disillusioned original A2K'rs. Brilliant day! except for that last bit.

You?

Jesus wept! What is this? Facebook? TMI!!! TMI!!!!

Just a remarkable coincidence, then. Stickstan was new, too.

@mark noble,
mine is a nickname given me by a workmate 20 years ago. It is a gloss on my initials, which are JPS. I used to have many more personal details on my profile, but I am more wary of my privacy again now. But I never hide my view and it is often a minority view at that.

i'd spout **** anonymous or not, my username is the same as a main email account i use, so anyone stumbling across this forum that knew that info could probably figure out who i was

as for changing a username to avoid detractors, well, there are cowards every where

i also don't want people to find me unless i want to be found, one of the problems with facebook is the people that come out of the wood work (classmates, workmates etc) and want to be your friend, guess what, if i had wanted to talk with you we'd have remained in touch not ignored each other for 30+ years until some magic of technology made fake nostalgia possible

luckily, i must have been reprehensible enough throughout my life that few folks from my past have bothered to search me out on facebook

Hi Dlowan,
I was just answering a friend of mine actually.
And I certainly wouldn't be found on facebook.
Have a nice day, dlowan.

Wow is anosognosia a word in your vocabulary? If that's your filter and you're the only judge of whether it works, do you think you have an objective opinion of the result? Do you also also think one-man-one-anonymous-vote should be suspended in favor of the new voting law passed in Port Chester, NY, where it's now one-man-six-votes? The voting 1:6 ratio is limited to hispanics so it's not exactly eponymous but close. I can see why you can't understand your comments are insulting to the vast majority using screen names.

I had to look that one up:
anosognosia a·no·sog·no·si·a (ə-nō'sŏg-nō'zē-ə, -zhə)
n.
Real or feigned ignorance of the presence of disease, especially of paralysis.
