Really? Dammit, I must be blind to them these days! We chased millions down for ages.
When the software changed and the 'real-sounding first name-last name' policy came in, all those with a single handle got randomly assigned Hatfield or McCoy, which is a bit of an in-joke of Paul's. (google Hatfield / McCoy...)
As far as I know, I'm not related to any of this lot, and as you're bound to know, NZers are so weighted down with irony, we're drowning

I hardly see any Hatfields or McCoys except in older posts. It used to be hilarious though!
