An end to Johnboy? [With poll]

By johnboy 29 January 2013 53


As some readers have twigged your correspondent has turned 40 today.

At such decrepit and advanced years one has to wonder about posting as “johnboy” (I was 27 when I started posting here under that name and Nik The Pig suggested it).

So should I saw it down to just plain “John” or something else?

Let rip in the comments with suggestions. Remember if you’re a spite filled turd you’ll be advertising the fact.

Time to get rid of the "Johnboy" handle?

I think we should have 3 tax payer funded studies into naming alternatives, and after 12 more years of deliberation you can change it to Johnboy

or a people’s forum

Get rid of the handle. Get rid of the individual. Both are well past their use by date

I could say the same about you.

I was trying to think of something witty to say, but I can’t, so I won’t.

However, I think you need a nemesis.

How about “Quincy d’el la Touche”

Or.. you know… “Spite filled turd” (Takes one to know one, after all)

.. or just leave it as “Johnboy” so as not to confuse future Mully-cup contestants.

Hm, not sure being compared to Telstra Tower is a compliment?

Happy Birthday!! No point changing it now unless you’re really bored of it. You’re a Canberra institution, along with things like Parliament House, Telstra Tower and the Belconnen Owl.

“Johnboy” is cool on this site. For broader professional applications John Griffiths is a pretty cool name. Now is probably the time to change – we’d get used to it.
