Get a Handle
Posted by mule train (+1055) 13 years ago
I know there are a few of you that perfer using your own name. I understand. But this is the internet, and I think that people should have some fun. Did you old timers use your real name on the CB back in the day? If so, you were probably laughed at then on the CB as you are laughed at today on the internet. I started my long and lustrious career as the "Little Grey Squirrel" in 1979 on the CB at the age of 5. I have never once in all my years of trucker lingo heard people bitch about using a handle as I have on this website. I know people named "Snakebite", "J-Lew", "Browneye" and such. Who here knows who the "Bandit", "Snowman" or "Rubber Ducky" are?

Now I know that you good people are not as much as a bunch of lame arsses as most people would think you are...so I suggest that before you die...get yourself a handle like "poison spaghetti" or "helenahandbasket" or "sod buster" and blab away! It'll change your life for the better.

By the way, my name john emilsson, i.e. sod buster, emilsson_2000, el swede, arctic swede, deer-slayer, and mtgrizfan. Go Cowboys! Go Griz!

PS...I expect to see a 500% increase in handles on mc.com in the next few weeks. Happy Thanksgiving.

Instead of a "handle" you need a "grip".

Cheerio!

...PS...Sorry about changing your handle from "Mule Train" to "You Idiot". One time when I bumped into the back bumper of an older driver in Miles City, he called me a knucklehead. Should have hit him harder.

As one who was previously hiding behind a very clever handle, and then revealed himself with a name that no one knows is really accurate....

It seems that I, the know nothing computer guy, has a suggestion for Larry.

Is it possible to change our handle by managing our accounts? Can it be done without hasseling you with an email? Well, durnit, it should be possible.

Make it so!!!!!

Not sure about going undercover or not, but if "incognito ergo sum" shows up some dark and stormy night, you'll know I've crossed over to the Dark Side.

LMAO I guess I missed this thread when it started. I can't say I've EVER laughed at someone for using their real name on the internet. I also think the paranoia about getting your identity stolen on the internet simply by putting your first and last name somewhere is absurd. But that's just me.

I use my name but not my "real" name. I am a woman of many names.

To each his own I guess.
