No. You can call me Nate or you can call me kneedownnate, but do not call me k. Sorry to rant, but this is just lazy or trendy, and I don't need competition in either!
OK, Nate it is....
Yes, I use just the first letter of the forum name not because I'm lazy or have any need to be "trendy", but just to shorten my keyboard strokes and not spell it wrong. Textual communications and conceptual semantics is an interesting topic, but I always respect how someone likes to be addressed.
