I need a new name...

I was attempting to join Digital Grin, which is ADV's owner, Baldy's photography forum.. I tried and tried to join, only to get the "you're a spammer" after registering.. I tried at both work and home, on 4 different computers..

I finally found out through the smugbug help desk, (yeah, it's tied directly to it) that reason I can't join is:

Quote:
Okay, I talked to the forum gurus on Dgrin. Seems the problem is not your IP address, it's the user name you are trying to register. Apparently, the word "paper" is in the spam filter database, and cannot be used as a forum user name. If you pick another name, you'll be fine,
Well crap.. I've been paper on forums for over 10 years.. I'm a moderator on one, and a SuperMod on another with admin rights.. I'm paper on at least a dozen forums..

So, I thought I'd try my fake noob name, Skeeter, and some other jerk's got it..

So, I'm in need of suggestions.. (oh, this should be entertaining)...

I'll pitch in some "about me" crap, and toss some suggestions my way..

BMW rider for 25 years, shooting and gun nut for for 40, worked in the paper industry for 20+, and I like bacon..

I'm seriously kicking around using the name 257 Roberts.. The majority of my photography is gun related, anyway..

So, out of boredom, and the fact that I can laugh at myself, feel free to toss some user name suggestions my way..

When I first saw the title of your post what immediately went though my head was "The Dread Pirate Roberts".

Bacon has GOT to be taken (double score for the rhyme).
