What kind of snooty name needs an apostrophe right in the middle anyways?! I say don't blame the website, blame your parents! 2/27/2009 11:41 AM | Dylan

what kind of jackass uses apostrophes in their email address? You probably use filenames longer than 8 characters too. 2/27/2009 12:32 PM | Nolan

Dylan - My parents should get a commission from every place I worked at where my name caught similar issues in testing. :P

Nolan - It's my NAME! Why are you so racist against people with apostrophe's?! You must REALLY hate Irish people.

Justice - I just didn't get around to enabling her comment, its up now. 2/27/2009 2:04 PM | D'Arcy from Winnipeg
