I would prefer the moderators to insist that everybody uses a nom de plume because I think it would make things a bit safer for some of our less experienced forum users.
Definitely no offence intended to anyone - but there are, occasionally, some very naive postings - often, I suspect, from older Forum members - who could become prey to advertising & scams.
It can be quite good fun working out whether a poster is male or female and how they came to choose their name (I think there was a thread on this very subject a while ago).
On the subject of Avatars - I might change mine & become a leggy size 12 blonde overnight (I wish...)
