What’s in a Name
The 5th anniversary of 9/11 is a reminder that my first name is not welcome in many places (mostly by americans)… do you really think having the same first name as somebody makes me bad? How about all those who carry the first names of sinister characters in human history.
I’m proud of my name, my name identifies me, it’s one of the arabic names of the lion, and I refuse to change it even if only online… in late 2001 I was kicked out of so many IRC chat immediately after entering channels just because I use my name.
Get a life! This is my name, and you’ll have to tolerate it.
