I'm curious to know the reasons behind user names, here's mine:

I was a fan of Citizen Smith and the Tooting Popular Front and i thought citizen M would make an apt virtual comedy moniker. The M stands for....... umm.....er.....umm....(scratches head, taps foot).....O.....darn and blast I can't remember....... :blink:

I wish I had shown half as much imagination! :D I can't exactly hide behind my moniker to post something provocative or inflammatory! :ph34r:

Just my initials, nothing more, nothing less. I do find it weird though, when people refer to me as "moc" in replies, so in hindsight, I wish I had just used me proper name!

SLR you need to be on some form of register thats sick !

Dazza have been called that as long as I can remember well before the phrase Gazza was coined !

Although i had the same surgeon who did Gazzas Knee surgery when he operated on my knee ( ACL) but thats another story !
Your obviously mistaken me with someone who gives a fig

I thought it was because your real name is Luke and you come onto the IC forums to rail against life in general and vent your spleen about perceived idiocy..... am I warm? :unsure:

My name arose as I understand that CP is the highest point in London - and of course because I love living here!

Power to the people! The Red Flag is going to be stuck in my head now...

Well mine totally lacks imagination. This was my first forum many moons ago, so no clue at the time. In other places I go under the name of Asenath (...!) - an ancestor of Yorkshire origin.

Eek! A woman in America has stolen my alternative pseudonym, including the numbers that follow the Asenath bit. But I am more googlable so there!!! (Sorry.)

Thanks to Moc, Dazza, SLR, SL MP and GillW for telling or not telling all. I'm still keen to hear from others for example is Redbunny23 the 23rd red rabbit in the warren and we all know he's sharp but is Fang also an orthodontist, is Nanazola really Emile's nan and what is Ziwa about??? :blink: :blink: :blink:

Not sure about the bunnies, but I always presumed Nana by Zola was Nanazola's favorite book, but maybe that's a bit too easy, considering her line of work, it might be much cleverer than that. As for Ziwa, I would guess something to do with lakes in Tanszania... :ph34r:

No idea at all about james though.... :rolleyes:
