in thread [Culture] brian d foy name is allways lower case: why?

For the record, Monsieur Champs is a literal translation of my last name ("Campos") to french, prefixed with the equivalent treatment for the english mister (i.e., Monsieur) - a pun on my name as I explained previously.

I believe that if one is to chose a "unique identifier" for oneself, and have it respected - something you, as an author, correctly insist upon - one should really be ready to respect other's choices on this matter.

You will notice that at no point did I say your choice is "strange" - I was only curious about it because of my friend's question, and because it doesn't follow the usual conventions for name writing.

I just asked something I don't know, taking care of not offending anyone while doing so. This is the Seekers of Perl Wisdom section purpose, it isn't? If I'm wrong, or did something you have a good enough motivation to think is disrespectful or evil, or just not as nice and polite as I am supposed to be, please downvote me to death.
