Pedant?
Moi?

Well, I may be a pedant, but at least I write my name beginning with a capital letter.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

How grammatically correct is it to have an adjective in your name? Anyways that is so last millenium.

My dear boy, a great many names are adjectives.
Besides, if it's good enough for Alexander The Great, it's good enough for me.

I prefer the verbs.

Saffron Burrowes - Does she?

Sorry. TFD, your name is not written here, it is typed or printed.

Besides which, spelling one's online nickname all in lower case is not only allowed and expected, it is quaint and involves the often overlooked geek license of keyboard literature.

So there.

Sorry.
