With the recent move to the CPF's new home, many of the members adopted new names. It's hard to know who your "talking" to sometimes. So I devised this little cheat sheet in order to keep track of the members and their various personnas.

As the title of the thread indicates, this is far from a complete and comprehensive list. However it is the best that I could do with minimal research and my feeble memory. I hope that this list is helpful to others.

I invite members to add names that I may have overlooked or simply forgot over the years to this thread so that I can update the list..

There are some names that I believe are simply another personna of better known members (Purveyor of Pomposity !V and Bunt the First Two for instance). A few others that I do know the identity (Carnac the Metnificent and Fran X Healey) of, I have not divulged because I'm not sure that the member desires to have their identity known.

Once again, I encourage others to add to this thread so that I can update this post in order to make it more complete and accurate

It kind of ruined the mystery when I was outed as GSLC.

I was Willets Point, Othemts, and Monsieur Metropolitan at Metsonline, just for clarification.

I appreciate the feedback from everyone. I will update the original post as corrections and additions come in.

I kept drawing a blank on Willets name from the MOFO. I could only remember his less used tag in which he responded in French. Thanks for jarring my memory for Othemets.

Great to have you with us again Sandgnat. I immediately recognize old handles when people point them out to me, but I just couldn't come up with all of them on my own.

The missing MOFo name for Kasey is "Mezzman," but he used a lot of his CPF handles.

Archie Griffin/Jim Rockford/McGarett/Higgins also seems to be among the missing.

the first step is admitting you're a runner.

running is a mental sport, and we're all insane.

Why is this such a hot issue?

Remember "be the ball, see the ball, hit the ball"?

Well, IMO, you see the post and respond to the post (or thread topic).

Why would someone have a different opinion about, or version of, a response depending on who they reply to?

I realize its nice to know, but wasn't this already the topic of another thread?

That said, nice job, Doc.

I think that's a bit of a stretch of the underlying intent or spirit of the post.

It's putting a name with a 'face'.

That, and we are elitist swine. It's in the original by-laws somewheres.

The cynic in me thinks he knows where MFS is coming from and I
ain't even going there because it's nonsense.

And the basically good person in me meant that I really was curious about the answer.
Gnat's comment makes sense.

And the more that I think about it, some of the CPF-ers like numbers, others like to "see" a picture through words. It makes sense to know who you're replying to.
But we basically have our own styles.

Thanks,

Comments come in context. Knowing who the poster is or has been, and what they have previously written, helps frame their comments in a greater context.

Context aids clarity. Clarity aids understanding. Wisdom aids wisdom. Yadda.
