I learned it years ago too. But there is a difference between me calling myself a moron and someone else doing it: Same rule applies here.

But equally important is the hypocrisy of someone getting their knickers in a twist when someone uses their proper legal first name "without permission" feeling it appropriate to be so familiar with someone he's most likely never met.

I've met Mogens several times at UKOUG and think he'd likely find this thread hilarious and not be at all upset. But given the history and the context it is offensive. Perhaps Mr. Hurley should not have been asked to be treated one way while feeling free to treat others in a different manner.
