I accept your request. However, have you seen anywhere in this thread that a member's user ID has been shortened as an animal or any other species. I have addressed Partha Kansabanik as 'Partha'. I searched with my eagle eye to find any animal name spelt in this thread, but failed. Please reconsider it. Your statement has no relevance to this thread.
Partha Kansabanik as Partha,
Jebaprincy as Jeba,
Venkiteswaran as Venki,
Saroja as Saro,
Pattabhi Ramachandran as Pattabhi.
Ramakrishna as Ramu
Kailash Kumar as Kailash
Jagdish Patro as Jagdish or Patro
Saji Ganesh as Saji or Ganesh
Tony John as Tony
Jose Mathew as Jose
Timmy M John as Timmy
They never objected to it. Even I myself shortened my name as Sun. If a member has an animal name, or if the first/part name suggests an animal, whose mistake is that? The member should not feel offended. Else the member should change his/her profile name. This is my special request. What 's wrong if Bulldozer is addressed as Mr. Bull. Don't we address the great Mr. Billgates as Mr. Bill. Mr. Bull should feel proud. Bull thy name is Nandi, the Vehicle of Lord Siva. And also the Ambassador to Lord Shiva. Why to get offended. According to me, Like Mr. Sun, Ms Van too sounds good as a beautiful English name. You may not like it as experienced by me once.
In anycase, this thread deserves an indirect reference as the author has raised a general thread without any reference to any member. The netizens won't understand this. They will read it with some interest. We at ISC are not stooping to the low level, but improving our sense of creativity.
@ Vandana, While addressing, we cannot use the user ID of a member. User ID is different that is not generally seen by the other members. Hope it is the profile name that has been shortened - you mean.
No life without Sun
