    So I have been a member here since June 18th, 2012. Now it's true, I don't post on here all that much, but apparently I also don't look at any of those posts all that clearly, because, had I bothered to, I would have noticed that, apparently since Day One, I have been using a misspelled username.

    The username should be McCrutchy, not McCructhy.

    I always thought it was weird that I could never login to this site using my username, and now I see why.

    Maybe it's just me, but every time I see "McCructhy", I read it as "McCrutchy". I have to do a double take every time. I guess that explains how I never noticed. Still, that has been an unpleasant discovery about myself.

    Have you changed it? I'm seeing "McCrutchy" on the posts right now.
    (What it means, I haven't the faintest idea, but that's what I'm seeing.)

    :laugh:

    I've always noticed the strange spelling and kinda figured it was a mistake.

    But, this is the first time I'm seeing this thread. I guess one of the owners must've fixed things up.

    Hi all,

    Ron changed it for me after I PMed him about it. :D

    It is now in its proper noun form.

    Person, place, thing, animal or idea...I leave it to you to decide.

    Personally, I'd go in for any and/or all of them.
