Topic Subject:Limit of 16 characters in screen name

I am a great and powerful wizard. Previously there passed among you a puny and weak character, a man who only stood behind a flimsy curtain. He used a voice amplifier, smoke and mirrors to try to intimidate all into believing that he had great powers.

I am a great and powerful wizard. I am able to tell you that the puny and weak character will pass among you no more. The reason? A change in policy by the administrators of this board. There is now a limit of 16 characters for your screen name. ManBehindTheCurtain has 19 characters and he therefore has been banished and shall not return.

I am a great and powerful wizard.

Pay no attention to the ManBehindTheCurtain.

Kicks? Kicks!?

With all due respect Your Majesty, a great and powerful wizard takes no actions merely for "kicks".

As a great and powerful wizard I have monitored the activities of the weak and puny creature who previously passed among you. He came here often to read and to ponder. On a recent occasion he attempted to interject a comment into one of your ongoing discussions. It was then that he discovered his banishment.

I am a great and powerful wizard and it was I who was eventually able to discern the reason why the weak and puny one was no longer able to pass among you. It was I who then came forward to pass along the information I have gathered.

I am a great and powerful wizard, Your Majesty and I pronounce myself to be at your service, at any time and in any manner as Your Majesty shall proclaim.

Pay no attention to the ManBehindTheCurtain.

Why not just change your name to ManBehindTheCurt.

Cherub, surely you jest. What exactly is a man behind the curt anyway?

Somewhere in this realm there may exist a man who stands behind a "curt" but that weak and puny being who stood behind the curtain, although only a man, although only a man with mirrors and smoke, that being was a man with an understanding of illusion, a man with the talent of showmanship. From behind the curtain he created and maintained the illusion of a great and powerful wizard. Surely such a man deserves a full rendition of his hiding place in his screen name. Surely a crude shortening mandated only by size of the screen name field is not an appropriate fate for such a moniker.

Heaven must accept the blame. Heaven decided that band width considerations required a 16 character limit to screen names. It was not ManBehindTheCurtain who chose to leave Heaven. It was Heaven who chose to banish ManBehindTheCurtain.

But blame is for lesser beings. Focus on the present, focus not on the past. And so, no, ManBehindTheCurt shall not come forward and pretend to be the ManBehindTheCurtain. ManBehindTheCurtain is gone.

I am a great and powerful wizard. But those who have known me since those previous times may feel free to still refer to me now as they sometimes did then, as MBTC.

I come out from behind the curtain and stand before you as something that puny and weak being could never be. I am a great and powerful wizard.

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

Pay no attention to the ManBehindTheCurtain.
