Hi Maddog,

There was nothing 'hot' or 'combustible' in what you wrote. I
certainly didn't take is as any form of harassment or unpleasantness.
Seemed rather civil actually.

Names carry such cache and meaning and we all develop attachments of
varying strengths to them.

Even though I'm not certain of the need for a name change, if we
eventually do change someone needs an award for coming up with the
name :)
