    I'm just curious.

    It's one of the things I liked about HTF, but it seems that many obviously fake names are springing up lately....

    Rain,

    The rule is more in place than ever before.

    Send me a private email with a list of names
    you feel are fake.

    As far as RAIN is concerned....

    process of his name.

    Yes, and I still have the scars to prove it.

    Man, those Monster cables sting like nobody's business.

    (Seriously though, Ron and everyone concerned were very reasonable about my unusual moniker. [​IMG] )

    I guess this would not be the best time to create my new HTF ID:

    "E. Normous Johnson"... [​IMG]

    Well you see Rain, if Ron had used Kimber Cables it might have sounded better but it wouldn't have hurt as bad.....Priorities Priorities.

    I was always a fan of the name Hugh Jass myself. There is a "Hugh Jazz" on the forum I believe, as well as Bruce Campbell.

    I'm surprised no one has questioned my name here! Such a subtle yet obvious play on words. :p)

    In all seriousness one of my old college roommies used to sign up w/ BMG music service as Mr. Bill Melater.

    I've been wondering the same thing. Lots of names with odd abbreviations and symbols as well (like the member with four asterisks in his name).
