Eunuchs_Jedi, Revenge of the Gunloon
Ever notice how gunloons have such macho pseudonyms? Exhibit one, I give you unix_jedi. With that kind of handle, I'd expect the guy to be at least a Computer Science prof at MIT or, perhaps, CTO at Oracle or Sun Microsystems. Certainly, this person would be someone on Linus Torvald's speed dial.
Of course, such high expectations fall far short. And by "far short," I'm being very, very kind.
After all, if you create a psedonym like NFL_HOFer--you really should, at the very least, have: a.) played in the NFL and b.) be on someone's Hall of Fame shortlist.
For a good many gunloons, however, pseudonyms are like Enzyte. IOW, if they clap hard enough--Tinkerbell will live!
Let's looks at just a few gunloon examples:
New Jovian Thunderbolt
45 Caliber Justice
The list goes on and, drearily on.
