    Change of heart Caius? You shouldn't let those bullies in the Frontroom bother you.

    Yes, considering that I was just picking on him...

    Garcilaso de la Vega el Inca is probably too long a name IMHO. I avoid long names in forums as it gets annoying having to type in the long username time and again when you log in from work or elsewhere. A good compromise would be simply Garcilaso perhaps (it sounds better), or simply revert to Caius Flaminius.

    I thought you can just change your name in the CP without admin help?

    That's a NO! then.....
    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.

    “Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy.”

    To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticise.

    "The purpose of a university education for Left / Liberals is to attain all the politically correct attitudes towards minorties, and the financial means to live as far away from them as possible."

    Hmmm maybe I should go by Caius Flaminus for a while just to confuse people? Too bad it would have to be for 60 days.

    Well you didn't chose the easiest of names, but Garcilaso de la Vega el Inca is a much more beautiful name than Caius Flaminius imho. It has more class and style

    If you like it, keep it. Don't mind those slackers like me who want you to change it back to Caius just because they are too lazy to get familiar with the new name.

    In time, people will get used to it. After a while I myself will probably start calling you "Garci" or "GVI" or something, just like Caius Flaminius got abbreviated to Caius after a while.

    Yes... you know us oldiens can't bother with long names.
    That's probably why I and others called you CF from time to time. Even Andres changed his name after being repeatedly called just Andres.
    This new name is going to take time getting used to, but Andr is on to something... GvI it will be.

    I never do that, because I can't be bothered to
    No seriously I don't do it, because imo it's not worth it to do it everytime, sometimes do it tho, to clear up things.

    Im convinced Adrian II is Tosa. No one is that stoic.
    There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.
