Sometime in the next x months or years, if someone turns up outside my house in their new grenadier I'll say come in ....tea, coffee, beer?
Want a sandwich?
As I am sure most here will
I came to this forum last year as Donkadonk. Not badonkadonk, which I have discovered is something entirely different according to the modern urban dictionary. I've been lurking here mostly. Sitting in the wings observing and filtering, as you do.
Out of consideration for @DaveB
's suggestion I have changed my username to @Clark Kent
. It's a real name and not a made up word. It's not my
real name though. Am I being a smarta$$? Maybe, not intentionally. But like @acwiltshire
said: sometimes people do turn up outside your house. Which is what happened to me years ago because of a reader comment I contributed to a national safety magazine. My comment was printed with my real name and location (my permission was not sought or given). It wasn't an inflammatory comment or it would not have been printed. Nevertheless one special dude wanted to be offended and he turned up at my door uninvited one night to set me straight. It wasn't pleasant. So now I apply a little anonimity to my participation in special interest groups like this one. It's not to shed responsibility for my behaviour; I'm a 55yo professional with 35 years in the aviation industry; it's because I cannot reliably predict the behaviour of others online. Respect and civility have been hallmarks of this forum so far and I don't think real names are necessary for that to continue.
