Thankies Tenerife Sun.
I wondered how you did that!
My username was simply: Anne
I have changed my username a couple of times this week but found that I couldn't change it back to the original.... which I never actually chose to begin with.
Now I know why.... it defaulted

If you have your birth or married surname on your Account ............

............ be warned that it WILL be used by GR when they send a confirmatory pm to anyone who has requested an RR on one of your posts.

That occurs even if you have marked the "Board Name to be used in all communications by GR", and it does not show on either the open Board or on the heading of the pm that people send to you.

It happened to me .................. and I was furious, because it had been sent to someone who had been very threatening to me, and who had pm'd at least one other member to warn them to keep away from me.

He was angry with me because he thought I had RR'd one of his posts (I had not, someone else had done it), so he RR'd one of mine in return.

I don't know what he put as his reason for RR'ing, but GR agreed with him and deleted it ........... I thought it was actually an innocuous post, although it disagreed with his point of view.

I found out about it because he was so proud of what he had done that he sent a pm to me, telling me what he had done and c&p'ing the GR pm

The only way that GR could solve the problem was for me to enter a new surname ................... In Canada :-D

They could not promise that they would uphold the promise implied in "Board Name only to be used in all communications.

fortunately I have no idea how to transfer my photographs on here so you will not be seeing me naked on a rug - aged 6 months :-D

I'm so impressed very with some of the new Avatars members are adding to their profiles. There will always be some moaning minnies- thats life but the lovely images are really interesting - some have become a talking point.

Something I never expected that members would pm me with really nice supportive comments - all I can say it is a ginormous thank you because I never expected it.
