Help, I'm getting confused!! Kev, Anne, Roy, Simon, Ben; (some of us know Ben, but not everyone does!!)
Starting to see a problem here? We are getting so many new posters, it's kind of hard to keep track of everyone's opinions if you don't add an initial, or nickname, or second name, or something cute, or not so cute. ;)
Usually the chowteam will step in to say something, but I think they're swamped...Pick something good, and let us know what you change it to, so we can follow the stuff you have to say!! Thanks!

  1. Stepping in late, Galleygirl, but no less sincerely. Thanks for pitching in. We need all the help we can get. We do periodically call attention to the difficulty of nondistinctive name tags. Many thousands of posters make the possibility of more than one "Mary" or "Ben", etc. very real. We want to know who *you* are. Please take a moment to think up something more distinctive, or just add an initial or your last name. Let us know your new handle so we can all get used to it. O.K., back to Boston and the chow. Thanks.
