    What's in a username- how'd you get yours?

    I don't know if this has already been done, but I've done this on other forums...your choice whether to participate, of course.

    When you registered here, you chose a username. Maybe you chose one you use elsewhere, maybe this is the only place. Sometimes your choice is at least semi-obvious, sometimes not...sometimes it's on the silly side, sometimes a deeper meaning.

    In my case, somewhat on the silly side...I used to build web sites as a sideline, and I like wolves.
    ...and I've become 'known' by it on the sports site I own, so have used it here (even tho I may not elsewhere)

    Why did you choose yours?

    I lurked around the forums for a bit before finally registering a name. I was in a phase where I was reading about serial killers a lot and thought it would be a humorous allusion to the anonymity of posting on an Internet forum. I rather dislike the name now, but I'm kind of stuck with it.

    Had mine since I was like 14. Had some beef jerky in the fridge and was eating it. Figured a K instead of a C was cooler. Probably was listening to Korn at the time since this was in the 99-2003 time.

    Mixed two things I greatly enjoy: music and weed

    PSD: where the moderators consistently cave to crybaby tattletales and it's a lot safer to be openly racist, hateful, and ignorant than to be a little rude to the racist, hateful, and ignorant

    About 25 years ago when I first signed up somewhere they asked for a user name with Joe Domain as an example so I picked Joe Domain and went and locked up joedomain @ a bunch of free email sites before they wanted to know who you were. Somewhere along the way I lost my buddy Joe but used JD in user names and I am a Giants fan.
    "He's getting the best job in baseball."

    Bruce Bochy sent a clear message to whoever will be the Giants' next manager

    I have had cats in my house nearly every day of my adult life. My late wife was a cat-hoarder. There were no neighborhood cats that were not accepted in our house.
