    Five 0'clock here. Was staring at the member list aboard at this time of day. 53 folks on here, crazy like me to be up at this time of day. Reading the screen names actually was mind stimulating. (I know it doesn't take much to stimulate me)

    Of the bunch on here now I went through them and mentally arranged in my head the ones I like the best. After some sorting and re-arranging I settled on "THRowSOmeStink" Original and appropriate for a catfish forum. Other good ones and many more that aren't on here yet.

    What is you guys favorite? One you relate to because of his screen name? Does the name match the character? Is the name entirely opposite of the person you know? Who should change their name and what would be a good one for them. This ain't a poll. I am sick of elections just now. (wonder why)

    See it don't take much to get a post one here you new folks, they add up quickly. And you also get a chance to add to your total, the ones who have been here a awhile. We ain't looking for the best looking here. That would be tough. Nobody would win that one.

    One of my favorites----

    True Powderpost beetles are a group of woodboring beetles in the insect subfamily Lyctidae and the false powderpost beetles, the family Bostrichidae. These, and other woodboring beetles Anobiidae (anobiid, Anobium punctatum (common furniture beetles), and deathwatch beetles), all fall in the superfamily Bostrichoidea. The damage caused by the family Cerambicidae (the most common is the Old House Borer) is often confused with that of powder post beetles. However the damage is often very old, and of no consequence.

    i like the screen name "markj". it speaks worlds about this persons personality. blunt, to the point, mostly factual, very much like a calculated and calibrated computer.

    i also like the name "pythonjohn" it sounds like a porno actor.

    there are quite a few personalities on the board that i enjoy. but, i guess this is all about names. i am not too fond of the name "postbeetle". mostly because i work at a plant that pressure treats lumber to protect it from such gruesome enemies as the "powderpost beetle". and even though i agree with "splitshots" statement about these insects being old and of no consequence, one can never be too carefull.

    Lots of names in here with the catfish in them and most are holding cats in their avatar.

    I always admired the name (Tugdodger). I can just see a wiry little fella with missing teeth and scraggly hair smok'n cigs and drink'n beer in a 12 foot jon boat overloaded with poles racing all around the river trying to fish and having to move with nothing but two oars dodging tugboats. lol

    In case you don't know who I am referring to sometimes when I visit with them..

    Baitchunker = Upchunker ( I like that)

    PoisonPits = Mr Pits, Loft keeper, PoisonedPidgeon

    777 = Triple 7's, Triple ought 7

    Splitshot = Spitshoot, splitshorts, Cut Sinker

    223Reload = Reloaded, 223FullMetalJacket, Rewound

    Catgirl = CatscratchFever

    Spoonfish = Spoony, SpoonedDish

    PythonJohn = PJ, SnakeCharmer

    TwDawgNt = TwoDogNight

    SGT Fishslayer (Now SSSGT) = SSGT SomethinsDraggin

    Cheryl = Milena

    Katfshn50 = I'll leave that to your imagination.

    DadeMoss = Mossydade

    Many more but you get the idea. I like some of their tag names better than their screen names. I should have been their Mother and named them.
