My dad gave me the book The Fan Man by William Kotzwinkle when I was younger. The protagonists is named Horse Badorties. I resonated with that dude... and took his name, without the horse part.

That's pretty sad. Badorties comes back to post after several years of inaction and the only one to notice is silly little me. We do still love you, Bado!

Haha, I'm sure most noticed!
Bado, thanks for everything here at MajCom.......and for not making all users have the name "Horse_xyz".......Horse Sebrim doesn't quite have the same ring to it.

Username - a nickname given to me, based on my surname, by my close friend who was later my best man. In my mind it was particularly associated with one late night where a disposable plastic cup was absentmindedly ripped into a piece of modern art sculpture which I kept for the next 20 years in a tin box with a label ''Tangles" by Clarkenfeld. That has no relevance whatsoever but it's always nice tripping back 25 years to random memories.

The nickname didn't stick, apart from here.

I was reading the last posts from this forum and must inspiring stuff about the usernames a read below. For me 'bilsi' at start was a character from a book called 'DarkMarket' where the hacking mob is written with interviews and wars between criminal clans. 'Bilsi' was the username of an indian hacker that used to wear a pen drive as a necklace with alot of hijacked credidcards accounts to steal money eventualy he lost the pen drive nowhere. d-flat i always related to music but intuitively to bass playing flat notes kinda stick as that. I bought a bass just knowing some stuff about playing guitar with two fingers like in a bass, somebody wanted to form a band and invite me to the bass i accepted with that knowledge after i started to enjoy as younger i had a bad with friends suposedly i was the guitarist it confuses a little bit guitar to bass like your not so good or the bassist friend just got mad just without knowing if it's true :flute:. clankerfeld and why not calvin i guess!? they work out as image and text it is cool, the avatar interacts kinda directly to the text written. ndrm31 for me was like i would call nd! now writting this stuff because it sounds like an UNIX command close to rm31 lol... badorties it recalled me like bad-or-ties it felt like portuguese somehow it was like not bad - ôr - ties but bad-or-ties like mau(bad)-ou(or)-empates(ties) it might be lame it seems cool... anyway as an efect writting this to the site creator badorties not my lame interact with the username... it is a good work it goes far from just a site i feel it like a puzzle glued... with good good taste/complexity... it's very good what it is made... congratulations... :rock:

What's funny is how you read names that are hard to say as a word (ndrm31, looking at you) - I was recently playing with riskyone, ericjkline and brianstheman. At one point Brian says "I think they are trying to lure us into a trap Mr. Kline". I thought that Brian must know him outside of the site, or at least knew his surname. It was only then that I saw that it's in his username, I'd been reading it as just: ericjfkdsjfkdsfjksfdsdf :s:

legionbuck comes from being in the American Legion for over 2 decades. Also ties into the effective methods of the Roman legions and the " March or Die " outlook of the French Legion Etrangere.

This subject just came up in a game I am in. So why not restart this thread?

My username came from a character I created when I played an RPG called Dragon Wars.
I had a buddy in the army who was exceptionally pugnacious, so I shortened the name, and brought the
attitude. 😡

Back in the mid-seventies, my 2 brothers and some of their high school and college friends would come over to my house to play RISK. I had the real RISK board along with the wooden armies and they all loved playing on that board. We would play for hours, real knock down competitive games which lasted for hours and days and which sometimes would literally get violent. More about that later.

We always played singles and it was blood and guts. When I would get on a somewhat winning streak over a few days, I noticed that the game changed. Me, being a trusting soul, took many games to realize those SOBs were slyly teaming up on me. They were very good and sneaky.

Believe it or not, playing on the board 40 years ago is a lot like playing online today. Today we have suicide plays and suicide attacks. Back then, many times, when things did not go your way, someone in the game would stand up and furiously flip the board scattering everything everywhere, and players would almost come to blows.

So, after my discovery of their “team cheating”. I would play the game until I suspect their nefarious actions and then with a knowing cadence just state “genghisknows”. To this day I have used that name on a number of game sites. And, sometimes when those players and I cross paths they will bring it up and we remember those days.
