Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
Oh, grief. There are many people and things you can name your children after, why on Earth choose an internet service? Even if it did bring you and the baby’s father together. Lots of things can bring people together, but you don’t see names like “Joe Hedonism Bloggs” or “Tom Red Lion Smith” do you? So why curse someone with a name like “Lucian Yahoo Dragoman”?
Update: A factual correction to this story has now been posted.
