Ditto! The old saying about "change the channel or turn it off" seems to apply to U-Tube Videos also!
I think maybe some folks are taking this little video a little too seriously. Seriously.
And wonder how many Members have noticed your new "Handle" and Avatar Chris?
I've never participated in a forum that allowed display name changes before this one. I think this handle allows newer folks to see where I'm coming from in my posts. Outside of AU I'm generally pro-Amtrak, but since that view is already extremely well represented here I'm willing and able to take the role of the anti-Amtrak contributor. Amtrak is the sort of business that's easy to have a love-hate relationship with. On the one hand Amtrak is chock full of promise and potential, but on the other hand it often fails to live up to other passenger rail systems that came before or since. In any case the signature was left alone. I would think that should be enough to make the connection obvious.
Also, one can go on your profile page, click on "Display Name History" under user tools, and see any former names that you've had.
