    Anyone else on the boards get their name misspelled alot? Almost everyone calls me "Poly" which means "more than one", whereas "Polly" is a common name.


    Anyone else with names that get spelled wrong? AND I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT YOU SWEDISH elduean mar and Ivar FOO LOO SHAUN...........

    I mean, how the HELL do you expect our (my) tiny american brain to remember a name thats really awesome and beutiful? Phhtttt :spit:

    Give ME "John Black" ANYDAY.....



    *goes to corner, crys*


    EDIT: i'm talking about TB names, if their your real name or not.
     
  2. Some people thought my user name was a reference to Budweiser. It's not my favorite beer, it tastes like water to me. Ombudsman is a real word, open up the dictionary.

    BTW, your avatar looks like a drunk man sleeping on the table. :D
     
  3. Poly, stop whining, go grap yourself a beer, and go watch tv. Mmmkay?

    people call me "Dave Costello" but that's ok because it's the actual translation of my last name and also to have the same last name as Elvis Costello is :cool:

    I have seen Killdar spelled Killar, Kildar, Kiladar, Kildare, or any other combination of that. I know exactly how you feel Polie.

    the best one i ever saw was this one, although it's not really a misspelling:

    other than that i always wonder how you can misspell the name of someone you're "talking" to.
    a lot of times it seems as if people don't even try to get it right, which (in a way) shows lack of respect.

    On my other forums people sometimes spell my name Fijam, idk why, and one guy asked me how to purnnounce "figjam" it hought that was weird.
     


  18. Your name looks like american cocaine, and i ALWAYS think it is, cause your name is too run-together.



    Alot of people call me junior, but thats not what the jr means. It's my initials.
     
  19. eh, defeldus isnt too hard to spell, but it still happens sometimes. no biggie, i usually just hint them about it by purposedly spelling their name wrong. :)

    Well, I prefer just destroying names if I'm going to mis-spell them.
