How did you choose your Daily Paul "handle"?

DP classic unleashed, originally published Apr 30, 2008.
Your thoughts, please ...

I was just curious, looking over the list of "Who's Online" earlier today, about some of the very interesting and sometimes bizarre log-in names that people use here on the Daily Paul. I thought it might be fun to share how those of you with some of the more strange names (Martfuncher, HolyNinja, Mashthegas, etc.) arrived at them, if you don't mind telling.

I am just one among many.

That makes me just anothernobody. Present company included.

Mr Nobody

And now YOU can say, I know...

I decided before the daily paul to use the name JackSchitt. I just really typed it in to see if it would be successful. And it was!
Facebook would not let me have this name at all. Screw Facebook. Twitter is @JaackSchitt. 2 a's. While YouTube let me have Jack Schytt.
Maybe some1 else already had the name.
Whatever.
It's a name.
George Carlin would be proud.

sovereign human

Its an awakining. Its a birthright. Its a declaration. Its a responsibility.

Its a stratigy, Enlightened Disengagment.

sovereign

Irish for little James

Its my childhood nickname. Pronounced Shay-Muh-Sheen. Its the diminutive of the name Seamus(Shamus) and I guess could be directly translated to "Jamesie"

Séamusín

Back when I worked for others...

...most of them turned out to be idiots...one guy really sticks out...I'll quote him now:

"It's self exclamatory"!

Need I exclaim any further?

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

Occupy Wall Street

Think I chose it right at the beginning of that. Boy it really pissed off some YouTube commenters.

I am not afraid to speak.

That why I use my real name. I like pissing off the Nazi Republican Party and the Commi Democrat Party!

I quit hiding behind my user

I quit hiding behind my user name years ago! User name = hiding/living in fear. "Those that would give up thier liberty to secure security, deserve neither". Welcome to the REPUBLIC.

I think your claim is ignorant and insulting.

So the only reason a person would use a name other than the one dictated at them by whoever made claim at birth, usually parents is if they are HIDING? So cowards who are in fear but not you because you proudly display your name. So your superior and brave right.

Lets discover other motives. What if by using a user name one is sending a message of freedom and bravery, still hiding behing a user name?

Your logic is flawed and supremist in nature. First you claim your superior and everyone else is cowardly then you disrespect. Then you can justify any and every injustice. Afterall they are the cowards who hide behind a user name while you are out in the open honest and brave with your birth certificate name right?

WAKE UP

I found it.

on a shelf,
way in the back of my mind.
And it dusted off,
and shines real bright,
on Daily Paul for all time.

Lol, forgive the stupidity, I'm working on a song right now.

Are you big?

your a dude and your name is Mike correct

freedumb is not free!

bigmikedude's picture

Actually the 'big' in bigmikedude

came from me being referred to as 'big mike' by everyone to distinguish between myself and my stepson who was referred to as 'little mike' back then. So I took bigmike, and added "dude" on the end because I thought bigmike was a little dry, and mikedude just didn't cut it.

And so it was - "bigmikedude".

But I'm still big enough to kick everyone's ass from behind this keyboard, so don't make me use all caps on you bro. Remember, I wear two cowboy hats.

Lol

I am also known sometimes as POL POT...

no, not the grimy dictator. It's short for 'Power Of Love, Power Of Truth,' which is the English translation of the Indian word 'Satyagraha,' which is the philosophy of Gandhi that Martin Luther King Jr. learned about when he visited India.
