If you could PLEASE change me from Freelance Gynecologist to something more pedestrian, that would be SUPER! Just the standard ranking thing would be cool. I forgot I had asked for such an offensive name 'till just a minute ago.<br><br>Hey, we all get bored at work, you know? <br><br>

Dear Mod,<br><br>As Head Jackass I hope you think long and hard before changing the name of anyone who has put in a request for a name change only to have second thoughts. These names should be like tattoos obtained while on a drunken binge. Regrettable and permanent.<br><br>Reverting the name should be like laser surgery. Long and painful. <br><br><br><br><br><br>

Hey Topper - I suspect I may speak for others than just myself - could you make your sig just a wee bit smaller, please? Like by half, maybe?<br>

Smaller sig images would be nice, plus there's no need for all the dead space between your post and the image. Just use a row of characters if you feel a separation is necessary.<br>&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;&#8800;<br><br>See what I mean? <br>(I AdBlock all those big sig images anyway...I'm just thinking of the children.

So everyone dump on poor lil' ol' me because my sig is too large. <br><br>I am sitting here wondering why that bothers people. <br>Then dawn breaks over Marblehead. <br>All you people must view the threads in "Flat" mode?
