    Yep, just did for the first time today.

    My cynical thought when I signed up in the beginning was that this would be yet another Website with pretenses toward being about one thing but actually being 98% about sex. I've long since happily discovered that there are hundreds and hundreds of men here who not only have lives but have interesting lives and share them. These forums are great too. I'd be at the front of the pitch-a-bitch line if the choice to include "adult" photos in one's profile was taken away, and/or the removal of forums regarding "bedroom activities" occurred. But the overemphasis on getting laid isn't missed for its absence.

    Anyways, after 2+ years I could safely say RJ is a pretty good place on the Web that deals with life beyond the sack as well as in it. So it was time for a screen name switch. "MuslNorganLikr" was an accurate description of only one part of one aspect of my existence. I asked myself, "Would you prefer that this guy you're introducing yourself to know you're doing it because you're both Japanophiles or love wrestling or have the American South in your background? Or would you rather he read your screen name and figure you're just out to try and get his dick in your mouth?" Well, duhhhhhhh.

    No.

    I want to change it from "Slim2010" to "Slim", but I don't want to have to do the verification thing again. The name "Slim" was taken when I first joined.

    Once about 6 months in. But that was because it was my old online name.

    Yeah. My original name was stupid, but this was my first social site, so I didn't really know what to use.

    Yep I left once. But the forum discussions and quality men drew me back in. Plus I gotta help out with the color population around here! icon_biggrin.gif

    There are quite few frequent posters here who seem to change their screennames at least monthly.

    Yes, but it was a long time ago. I can't even remember what names I used to use.

    Yes, a few times, I wanted something new. But I always posted a notice, nothing sneaky with the change, and I've only had this 1 account my entire time here, no socks.

    3 times. I want to change it again but can't decide on what to go with.

    No, I dislike when guys change their names. Even in the cyber world, you develop relationships with others and changing a name is like a sudden death! Well, OK, not quite that dramatic but seriously....why?

    I was gonna say what mine was but I might want it back. This one's stupid. I'm just too lazy to change it. People were getting nasty (shock, I know) so I took a break and when I later looked at the site again there was a crapload of Jesusie threads so I started typing my new screenname as theantichrist but 2nd-thought not.

    And then after using the new name a while I happened to find that antijock referred to a movement of noncompetition which I've always related to so I just kept it. Fuck it. A rose by any other name.

    I have two cousins I probably piss off because they changed their names later in life. One went from a nickname to a real name and the other from a partial name to a full name but I still use the name I knew. I'm bad enough with names all on my own. Don't confuse me.

    Yeah, my original handle here was I'maBigFuckwad(don'tbothertocontactme). But it wasn't getting any responses for some reason....

    Actually, it used to be DrRobert61. Apparently "Dr. Robert" is way too obscure a reference, so a few days ago I updated it to BeatlesForever. Then a day later I remembered my favorite-ever queer handle for myself, XYlover69, and have installed it here.

    I'm sure it will lead, like the previous ones, to no actual meetings (just lots of bullshit and wasted time), but what the hell!

    Yes, twice. The first change was soon after I joined, before I had done that much interacting. Then I put my account in mothballs for about 9 months. When I came back, my chosen sobriquet was no longer apropos to my situation. So I went with something more active and ongoing.

    I'm continually reinventing myself. Like Madonna... Bowie... Sybil...
