What, using a first name is a big deal? I suppose all the hackers will now desend on him and wipe out his bank account, steal his identity, and give him painful boils? Get a grip people.
No and i didn't suggest anything like that, but a person makes an effort to not use their name as their nick for whatever reason they choose. Having that choice taken from you is/was poor form, especailly when a PM would have worked just as well.
Some people just simply prefer their names not to be used in this type of enviroment. I'm only suggesting that that privacy should have been respected, especailly from a Stardockian.
And yes Motti, the rest of the OP's posting is very poor, we all know what a great job support/mods/devs will do with a simple please and thankyou.
