I did not know the "profile" would be a profile and publicly posted. How many times do I have to say that?
I did change it. Go look. It matters not what was there in the "profile". I never used it on the boards.
Should I start calling you Mary Louise? After all you always have Carol on your posts so me and my common courtesy misconception figures that is what you want to be called so I use that if I use a name for you.
Why is it so difficult a concept for some?

Why do some posters make a big deal about NOT using what is at the bottom of the post?

I won't restate what has already been typed previously. Suffice to say IF I wanted my name used it would appear at the bottom of my posts.

I haven't become angry yet. I am irritated a poster who fails to show a little respect continues to repeat his actions after I asked him to stop doing so repeatedly.
Now you come on here to his side and take me to task for asking for common courtesy and a bit of simple respect and demand I apologise to him.
Would you care if I start calling you something that isn't signed on the bottom of your post?
How about "Toots" or something that isn't what you type at bottom of your post that I, with my old fashioned ways, figure you prefer to be called?
would that be OK with you?

IF getting irritated with someone for their lack of common courtesy and simple respect is a strange reaction then you and I grew up differently.
I am sorry.
Have a good night "toots"!
