Re: Dick

If you want names that predicate bullying, I spent an enormous amount of time in grade school dealing with the Alis ..... in wonderland ... tag. And I can recall at *least* 7 teachers or school officials that tried to convince me to loose the name. Hell no. I like my name.

GIMP is an acronym. Clearly denoted as typed. And oddly, 'a bit of a gimp' is what happens when one turns an ankle up here in canuckistan. Yes, it can be used by less literate types as an insult, but it truely isn't the common meaning up here.
