Yeah Muddy's good - did you muddy the waters when you bodged it up then? Or are you a fan of Muddy Waters?

Just don't call me late for tea.
I no, I can't call you Poo, that's almost as bad as BS

I think I can bear to call you Bear though, that sounds much friendlier. Cuddly even

I hope no one does this with my username

Are there any others out there that could be a bit iffy, or even offensive, if abbreviated in this way?

Re: I have noticed

My name is already abbreviated. It's actually Judderman and still is on some sites. Everyone on A. N. Other site started calling me Judd and so I decided to use that name when I joined here.

Oh of course. Fancy me not knowing that.

Probably because it's a word that doesn't come into my vocabulary.

Re: I have noticed

My username, other than the '46' is already an abbreviation of my name so cannot be shortened much further. It was a username from two previous forums (fora?) and when they closed I migrated to the same new sites as others, keeping the username to be recognised. As on here, we were not allowed to mention names of previous sites, other members names or any forum usernames, so that was that problem easily solved without breaking any rules or offending or upsetting anyone.

Re: I have noticed

My physics teacher called me Ginge short for Ginger. A long time ago. Now I'm Besoeker. I used that rather than my own name for business purposes.
