    At other fora I visit, people come up with really strange handles.
    My favorite is a guy who goes by the handle of "fartingchicken" with this animated gif in his signature:

    After a few of these I'm glad to talk to people using their real names......

    I must agree. It gives this forum so much greater reality and legitimacy (even if it is imagined). Perhaps it also helps that people may feel much less inclined to resort to antisocial tactics when they don't have fartingchicken to hide behind.

    The only way I could take fartingchicken seriously is, if I was interested in the gastrointestinal workings of a chicken, in which case he may be an expert.

    I have a hard enough time not creating charcoal when cooking chicken as it is, the last thing I need is more fuel for the fire!

    luv, Sue

    Actually I have always kind of liked the goofy names people come up with on other forums.
    Ahhh the good ol days of Cudbucket, PornMonkey & Wookiegroomer.
    I don't know about fartingchicken though [​IMG]

    Actually, I wonder if a few HTF members have "slipped through the system" and registered with false names, maybe just false last names. I have seen some seemingly odd names here. Obviously, we don't see "fartingchicken" or anything of that sort, but I have seen some unusual names here. I won't mention them.

    Heyy, Keith "H" (how mysterioso, mr. hirsch ;-) i hope you're not referring to moi, cuz i resemble that remark [​IMG] ...seriously, that is my real name. And if it isn't, the tax man owes me a huuge refund. I've been kinda thinkin about changing it, but for now you can still find me in the book.

    Actually, normally I go by Mike Hein but I figured Michael would be more proper. Reason being I didn't want any confusion between Mike Hein and Mike Hunt [​IMG]

    Well, I guess international members have some names you would never see in the US. Hope you aren't referring to me either! [​IMG]

    I absolutely agree. Real names (or at least real looking names) makes the whole experience better.

    The strangest thing is that fartingchicken is a MODERATOR on his forum.

    I do prefer real names. However, I'd love to get a look at some official ID for "George Kaplan."

    Of course, they make such good ones these days.

    One of my favorite monikers used at another forum is "Meatpants". Everytime I see that moniker, I laugh.
