What's in a name?

..or in this case, handle?

Where to start, given some of the heinous handles that proliferate here, and sadly even reach my mailbox (where they're deleted immediately).

I really would never be interested in anyone self-christened in homage to their genitals. In life, we live with the names our parents bestow on us; here, we can name ourselves and be anything we want to be and to see that chance wasted is irritating. An interesting handle suggests an interesting person and I'm not drawn to the mundane in any context. I like people with wit, imagination and creativity, not drones with no other stimulus in life than that of cheap sweaty porn.

As this is a sex site, by all means choose an erotic name but be original. When I see any handle with horny, 69, cock, dick, pussy, fanny, sexy, yadda yadda yadda it puts me into a coma because it suggests terminal dullness. A name that suggests something about the creator's personality is much more appealing than one letting you know they have genitals. Everyone has genitals, unless they've been victim of some terrible accident, so it's hardly a bloody novelty. When I chat, there are some names I simply won't type because they strike me as utterly braindead so the owners waste their time even posting to me.

I think it's a matter of what we all choose to accept. There's a lowest common denominator to everything but I can't and won't live at that level and I don't respect anyone who does, or who is prepared to compromise. Wit, humour, style..they count here as much as anywhere - to me anyway. Choice of handle had better be right when it's the only means by which we represent ourselves.

I've used different handles over the past year or so that I've been here... I usually get the 3-month deal on a Silver Membership, so that if I get bored with the handle I picked, then I have an out. Also, I think it keeps me off "the list" because each time I get a new one, I start over with a new blog. There's many who still recognize me by my writing and that's okay... they're the real friends.

Anyway... the name I use now is the name I'll be keeping. (Got the 12-month deal this time). Certain few had tried to drag me into a drama, then thought it was such news and "MUST READS" when I emerged as a new identity... like I was some kind of fraud or stalker, which I'm not. (I explain all that in my first post under this name.) So, the name I use now is probably unique... it is my real name... because it represents my real me! (The "ZZ" part was an after-thought when I discovered that A.F.F. added some weird number series after it. In a way, it reminded me of that old rock and roll band, "ZZ Top" ... so, I guess I could say that like them, I'm a classic!

It's easy to sift the loons from the normal ones here, beardything, and nothing wrong with a change of handle as long as the people that count know who you are. It's like a new outfit in case your butt looked big in the old one

You mean, you'd think less of me if I were called monster_pocket_rocket_69 or humungous_assfucker?
