Dear Friends,

In recent days, addressing people by their chosen name has become a problem for some, and it's been annoying me, especially since some of these individuals seem not to pay any mind when they are told by the other party to address them by that name and no other.  I am asking all of you to respect other posters and address them either by their screen name, or by their real name, if they have revealed it.  The first time may be an honest mistake, but don't make it a habit (as it seems to be in certain instances).  Thank you.
