What's in a Name

I wonder if those regular participants that use alias for their user names would mind putting their real names in their signature. Even a first name and last initial would help. Call me old fashioned but I find it hard not knowing who I am responding to. Sometimes I don't even feel like responding to those without real names. How can we come to know each other in this community if we don't even know your name? If you don't know how to create a signature or don't want to, you could always sign the post.

Thanks Bob, Thanks Carroll and to whoever may have gone ahead and made the change to their signature.

That just feels so much more personal!

I think the problem often is that the system won't let you use your actual name as someone else has already used that name. Hence my use of Nickam which is the one it accepted after many tries. But I totally agree, which is why I added my actual name to the signature some time ago. Also it's handy sometimes knowing what part of the world people are from!

I prefer the personal touch too Don, but I imagine some folks do not want their name to become too "searchable".
