Starr Black wrote:Hey Paul,
PLEASE don't delete my name--Starr Black may sound like a "fake name",
but its actually my birth name (even the passport office gave trouble some time back).
What can I say, my mother was a child of the 60's who was a fan of Ringo Starr....

My own name is rather unique and recognisable. Sure, I can use another fake name, but I'm bound to forget it. I'm one of those name-challenged people *laugh* Is there any way I can keep my name? I'll abide by the rules, but would prefer to stick to what I have if it's at all possible.
I'm not seeing the "why" behind this policy.
Now, we have to change that to participate on this site?
I haven't been able to participate in the discussion of this policy until now.
If we get locked out, will our past posts be deleted/removed?
I do understand that this is "Paul's Site"
And I expect that there will be some people that will choose to leave. I think that what we will gain will be far greater than this loss.
