Shimbo Darktree BS: Why did you choose your nickname? (175* d) RE: BS: Why did you choose your nickname? 02 Jan 00


What's wrong with my name?
Actually, this thread has made me think. You are a good mob
so I'll be honest. I chose a nick because I was not sure
what I might be letting myself in for when I started on the
web, so caution suggested a nickname, which I also use on my
home page. We don't all want to be identified ... and I
didn't mention the Gar ... whoops.
On the other hand, I do not have a problem with attaching my
name to my opinions when appropriate (that is, when it is time
to stand up and be counted. In fact, my name is on an earlier
thread, and also somewhere on the personal profiles (I think
... I've forgotten where to look.
I am a sci-fi fan, and Shimbo Darktree was a god in one of
Roger Zelazny's novels. I have found I am not the only
Shimbo on the net, but there are a hell of a lot more Ian Clarkes.
