Call me Dan

I just wanted to see what the consensus is on people who use their names actually being called by just their first name. I find it a little silly when people reply to a comment like this:

"Daniel Flory-"

Just call me Dan for goodness' sake. Do other people who use their real name feel like this?

OK, Dan! :D

Call me George. My handle was from back in the day. A guy had already taken Big George - he never posted so I kept the BigG for continuity.

Man, now I really feel bad about having called you 'Mr. Flory' a couple times. :p

In all honesty, I usually just copy and paste the users name when I address them directly. Cuts down on missspellings. ;)

I personally like how Sheslinger and I are collectively know as "The Slingers".

What cratz2 said. Copy & paste is a wonderful thing.

Honestly, I'm more often tempted to call you ronin308.
In my mind you are "that one guy way up in LaFayette that was a pleasure doing business with". Since that's a bit long to type, I guess I can settle for Dan.
Similarly, when I see the name Chris Rhines, I automatically think "the beatnick looking anarcho-capitalist who I need to remember to buy a case of 9mm and a box of Uzi mags for once he graduates". But Chris is easier on the ol' fingers.

Okay, you can call me "Tall" if you like ... (which I ain't, really)

Unless you are mad at me, in which case you could could just call me "Pine" ( as in "hey Pine, *** are you doing now?" )

cordex- How does that piece shoot BTW?

Justin- I won't laugh until Chris chimes in first ;) :D

El Tejon- A call is on its way!

Just for the record guys, Mrs. Flory is hot. She buys me guns. She is sweet. I am blessed! :D

Dan- I think part of it comes from the question 'well is Daniel Flory his real name? Or is it taken from history I've forgotten or a book I should read?'

Maybe also that some people don't like it when their nick is shortened, though personally, upon reflection, 'QuarterBoreGunner' is a little long and QBG is ok with me, or even (just saw this one) ¼ bore... I kinda like that one.

Ya'll can call me Chris, but I think there are probably more than a couple Chris's around.

When Rhines graduates? I wouldn't hold your breath cordex. I'll have my masters before that kid has his undergrad :neener:

Lots of people stay in college as long as Chris, but we call them doctors.

Speaking of Mrs. Flory, she has a sister right?

Stomp me? You only stomp hippies and I am most certainly not a hippy (now Rhines on the other hand....)

Very nicely, thank you. I've gotten to use my Dillon a lot more because of it too.

I say beatnik ... er ... "beatnik looking" with the all due respect.
Anyway, he seems to fit the definition quite well:
a person who rejects the mores of established society (as by dressing and behaving unconventionally) and indulges in exotic philosophizing and self-expression
*taps out a beatless series of thumps on a set of cheap drums*
Heh.

Someone isn't going to let me shoot their Uzi, are they?

Back to the original topic (although pictures of a hot 16 year old after she's aged for a couple more years are always appreciated :D ), it leaves me scratching my head also. I get responded to as "Greg L" a lot (which is a major portion of my name so it isn't a problem) which seems quite formal as I usually end my posts like this....

Bowlcut
May 2, 2003, 08:06 PM
My problem coming from high school and college was no one ever called my by my real name Kevin. It takes me a few times to get used to the name actualy. Ive been called Bowlcut by most my friends for about 10 or more years now. Dad occasionaly calls me bowl, bowlcut or cut depending on whos around. Most the time everyone calls me Bowl.....

Then the whole issue from college of everyone calling each other by either their screenname or their character's name from the MUD we played

Many years ago, when I really, really didn't know much about the web or bulletin boards, I tripped over the keyboard and saddled myself with JohnBT.

I sign my posts John or JT(a lot of people call me JT), but still see a lot of JohnBT. Oh well.

Funny thing is, my last name is sort of another first name, so my entire life I've heard a lot of T. John. Oh well.

John

JohnBT, has anyone called you JBT? :D

Bowlcut...I HAVE to ask...are you Asian?

Bowlcut
May 2, 2003, 08:31 PM
Nope I am not.. Good old american breed fat white trash redneck. Back in my freshman year football days, dad cut my hair for me, i do it now. But we shaved it down to the skin on the sides and left the top long. But the top was only maybe inch or two long, didnt even lay down for the most part. So Id say more like a platecut than bowlcut. One guy said looked like I used a bowl to cut my hair, cause i didnt fade it just a hard line around my head. But dang it, it kept my head cool under a football helmet

Other than the 'fat' and 'white', me too :D I just had to ask cuz all the Asian kids growing up in the 80s....

well atleast you guys can be called something . If you called me by my screen name I won't answer you . there is 2 names I answer to well actually 3 but the third is not mentionalble on this family website , When mailing me its ok to use Coonan . but in real life its either Scotty ( yes my name ) or Spencer . for the longest time no one knew my first name because they called me by my last for so long . and Mr Flory, get used to it ... It took me awhile, but it's better than being called an obscenity . :D

Dan..

What about people who just call me "blink" and skip the "two" part?

I'm ok with it, I guess... unless someone signs on with a name like "Oneblink" :D

I'm fairly young myself, and I always turn around looking for my dad when someone calls "Mr." at me as well..:p

Hello Dan, This gets most confusing as Ala Dan is also Dan. You are not from Ala I hope. That would make it nearly impossible to call you Dan.

But in any regard you may call me Meek. You will soon see that I am the meekest one on this board. :cool:

I think the same people that have always called you Dan are the same people that call me Tech and the little asian carbon fiber dude Skunk.
