Username poll

Good morning fellow 'Ducatisti' and especially the T8 appreciation society!

As I post on here the most, though i'd put this one to you all, not strictly an 888 query, but humour me.

It's my username. A couple of years ago, I came across this site. As I wanted to post stuff quickly, I put my user name as 'RightSaidFred', without really giving it much thought. This is because my middle name is Frederick (stop laughing at the back!)

But now, i'm a paid up memebr of the DSC and use this site far more than I ever envisaged. The problem is, gentlemen, I don't like my username. It congures up images of that camp pop group, and makes me feel like some 'Fred Fairbrass' character when I log on. As a practising heterosexual, it bothers me a bit, know what I mean??

So, should I change it or not bother? What would you do? Serious answers only please to the usual address....

Lynds,

I don't like all this weird user name stuff although I understand why it comes about - lots of boards won't allow same names when you register. It makes face to face meets a nightmare and although we knew each other pre DSC, you'd never realise it given the registered user name!

My 0.02 worth, change it.

Rgds, Rob

IMHO its only for light hearted banter, when I first joined I used my e mail user name not knowing that it would become my DSC name. I asked for it to be changed to YMFB not because I am embarrased about my real name or crave anonomity but because its not like work its fun.

Excuse my ignorance but is Fred Fairbrass gay or a gay icon ? if so change it as it could cause you sleep problems

Talking

Heheh some good replies there. And I must say you're all obsessed scary bas**rds to log onto a bl**dy motorbike forum at 9 o'clock on a Saturday morning! Haven't you got families, shopping, DIY and car cleaning to do??!!

Sadly yes, Fred Fairbrass is as bent as a nine bob note i'm afraid. And I just can't help feeling a little bit gay when I log on. Now obviously in this PC world we're all forced to live in these days, there's nothing wrong with being gay, oh no, it's all perfectly acceptable and all that...but, well, i'm not gay am I? So despite the fact that I respect their right to be gay, and yes ok it's refreshing to see that gays can expect the freedom to have a public ceremony to recognise their commitment, and all that, I am trying to carefully and delicately, while observing their human rights, distance myself from such.

PS pulled a crackin dolly last weekend and spent the whole night back scuttling her over her parent's sofa!!

You seem to be in denial here.

You admit that when you log on you feel a bit gay, but then you go on about women a bit too much.

These days it is not unusual to admit to ' swinging both ways '. Don't worry, I'm sure none of us will have a problem with that and I for one will not hold it against you.

Keep the name....or just change it to Fred?

Now just look here one minute... I am definitely *pauses for a second to adjust suspender belt* not Gay in any way ok? Mind you, I wouldn't mind discussing what it's like to go full pelt with a tranny...now come on, don't say you're not at least a bit curious. Aren't you?? Eh Sir? Ooohh imagine that eh Sir? Sampling the unique delights of a 'man - woman - man?'

Heheheh. 'Now Charlie had a think and he said 'here Fred, you know I've got this kind of feeling, that if we remove the ceiling, with a rope or two we could get the blighter through..!'

Oh dear. Tried to be a bit serious with the thread and, as always with people who think they're grown up but in reality are just 'Adult Children', it's all turned into juvenile stupidity. Long may it continue Gentlemen!
