Finally, someone who likes my first name . . .
David Lindsay Barch over at the Marmot's Hole recently urged posters (but didn't 'insist' on commentators) to use their real, full names:
I'm gonna (again) suggest that ANYONE who's invited to post on MH -- Korean or not -- agree to dispense with their anonymity, man-up (or woman-up), and use their real names when posting.Note that "given up asking" doesn't mean given up expecting . . . so I complained:
(I've long since given up asking commentators to do the same.)
Dammit! You mean I got to start manning up that I'm really "Horace"? Well, does that sound like a name to 'man' up to? Nuh-uh! No way! Just manning up to "Jeffery" is embarrassment enough!D. L. Barch -- he prefers D. L. (maybe he's "Divine Light") -- assured me that "Horace" is a grand name:
"Horace" is an awesome name, man! (Though, truth be told, I'd probably go with "Horatius," but that's just how I roll.)I acknowledged the compliment:
'Tis true I am a poet . . .And I've got proof!
