Posters who've shortened their names
« on: May 03, 2006, 05:57:55 PM »
Have you noticed how many people now go by shorter versions of their initial screen names?

Darkwing Duck-->Duck (Duckie/Ducky)
Redemption--> Red.
Sugersh--> Su
Skaiserbrown--> Scott
Vegemite/Vegemitemama-->Veg
Tralala-->Tra (even though I don't think she's officially shortened it, I can feel it coming)
Madpropps--> Props
Palaedorian--> Dorian
Habeas Dorkus--> HD
Bassdesire--> Bass
JamesDowning --> JD
Pancholefty--> Pancho
Caneschica--> Chica
Cyberrev--> Rev
SC grad--> SC
LSAT Killer--> LK
Winter Lily--> Lily
Chidochidochidochidochido...--> Chidochido
Magnumalv--> Maggs
Shellrae--> Shell

Can you think of any others?

BTW, there's no point to this thread. I'm just bored. Humor me.

By the way, there is a woman at my work that looks exactly like HD and weirds me out every time I see her......Like just now.

Thou, what was yours before? I'm modifying the original list to include everyone's.

I can't shorten mine, but I know at least Scotty has managed to give me a nickname (Curls). Like tra, I don't think I'll ever shorten it, but who knows...

Red--I think vegemitemama was just what she named that account right before deleting it. I don't think she ever actively posted under that name, so I didn't use it, but I'll add it.

Thow--I'm doing just the "shortened it to what everyone was calling me" type things. :P

It randomly occurs to me that this is what the study of etymology is like...finding out former posters' initial names says something about them that the 'shorter' version doesn't. It's also cool to figure out what people will start calling someone whose name is too long to type.
