Hello, my fellow readers. With the most recent re-design of the state-journal web page, the code monkeys have offered the word "anonymous"+several numerical digits as a suggested username for people signing up for internet access.
I can understand needing to angrily fire back a retort to someone's post, and quickly accepting the "anonymousXXX" as your username in the heat of passion.
But please, go back and edit your username to something a little more memorable. I miss jaw-jackin' and ****-raisin' with ranger danger, recon marine, ronandlane and a host of others. Some, like bodeen, chazrigz and sellus, have adopted the old "nicknames" we had in the past.
Please give a little thought to your "handle" lest the definition become part of your life, to wit: "Anonymous (adj.) Lacking individuality, unique character, or distinction: an endless row of drab, anonymous houses (or people)."
