Attention forum members:

I have noticed over the years that my childish (ancient enough to be so literally) handle causes some confusion.

So I thought I'd waste good bits by starting an entire thread about my name, which is Marshall. It's a good name, and I don't spell it wrong.

That will be all.

:)

Oh, and the point of this is, if you want to refer to me by name, you can (should) use my name, rather than my confusing handle.

So would this be a good place for me to come out (and clarify that my handle isn't my name)? :)
(P.S.: that should in no way be taken as a JAB at the LGBTQ community, as I have quite a few friends that identify as one of the categories under that umbrella)

Here goes:

Hello everyone,

My handle is Rusty Young Man and I am a gun enthusiast. A poor, college-student gun enthusiast, but gun enthusiast nonetheless. I am in the same boat as Marshall, and people (on this thread) know me as Rusty or "RYM", but my name is not Rusty...

@Marshall (aka "Marshaul"): I kind of figured you were just using an alternate spelling for your name. Good to know.

Well, that's a let-down.

Based on your handle, I thought you were in interplanetary freight. I was gonna asked if I could hitch a ride.

:p

Sir, I am impressed. That makes you the first person in decades (ever?) who not only guessed that it's a pun, but figured out what the pun was, to boot.

:lol:

My name should be obvious. I don't know where the 77 came from, I've been on here the better part of 7 years and can't remember why. This is the only website that is graced with my participation, lol.

My name is Seth Yale Minter. Parents wanted me to go to a prestigious school, but instead I became a sneaky mall ninja

Sorry, pal. My avatar has been Kirk since before Algore invented the Internet.

As for Marshall, you are lucky in that I read so many of your excellent posts that I remember you well. I will probably remember the correct normal spelling of your name. Normally, I wouldn't bother, and will always use a person's handle instead. Not only for the sake of my own memory, but for easier referencing by newer members reading the posts.

Why, thank you.
