You just reminded me of a little acronym that my friends had a few years back.

CFC: Common F***ing Courtesy.

So the next time you hear some enviro-weenies talking about reducing CFC, let them know you fully support the need in this world for CFC. :)

I find that the best way to let people know that adding an extraneous character onto your name, such as 'y', is to ignore them until they realize that they must not be addressing you.

It's kind of like me saying to mitd, "Say, Lois how are you doing?" He's not going to look at me or even think that I'm addressing him. So in the same vein, if I said, "Say, Pete how are you doing?", I'm not truly addressing mitd since he has never (I presume from the post) gone by the name Pete.

I don't quite understand why people feel compelled to misunderstand why other people choose their most preferred name and then continue to abuse this misunderstanding when addressing them.
