This place used to be full of name changes, in-jokes, characters who'd posted on RAWK for years. It was part of the culture of the site and formed its own little society. I'm quite happy to admit that I changed Al's username (not his photo mind). It was a light hearted bit of fun that I've not heard Al himself complain about? If he had, I'd have changed it back instantly. I didn't change it to anything rude, disrespectful or offensive. Al is one of the site's most established posters and I would hope he'd take the change in the spirit with which it was intended.

I have absolutely no idea why people on this thread are complaining about something that has nothing to do with them. Bore off, and Al please let me know if you want to chat about it.

Well thatís reassuring. Itís being used as a stick to beat him with in pretty unpleasant ways mind. And Iím asking the question because the personal attacks and insults on here are lowering the tone, you neednít be defensive about it.

Speaking of name changes I don't think I need the 87 in my name anymore.

The other 86 Amir's that were here when I first joined have all left now.

The mis-spelling change in mine was/is funny. I won't change it back. :wave
Iíve never noticed that spelling before!

In one of Alís response he describes himself as a mule so obviously not offended by the Eeyore renaming.

And Iím sure if he was unhappy he let you know , in detail, many, may times. :D

Again, if Al is remotely concerned about it, he's welcome to post me and if I've upset or offended him then I will be happy to apologise.

Changing someone's name to a beloved Disney character is probably, on balance, neither a personal attack nor an insult. I'd say at worst I would put it in the category of "gentle ribbing". But as the opinions of the target of the joke are important, I'm happy to be persuaded otherwise by Al.

The toxicity on this site, where it exists, comes from aggression, relentlessly baiting people, and ultimately taking some things far too seriously.

Yeah I remember when Jim changed my name/CT once became a pea flew off his plate and he thought of me. (Hope heís okay btw if anyone has been in touch with him?)

From what Iíve seen, Al finds the name change funny.
