Okay. I'll play along.
Batenswytch (NOT picked for SH btw) Sounds like 'bait n switch'.
I use my Bate email acct to troll Nigerian email scammers, you know, the guys that email you about that uncle you never knew of who's African Royalty and wants you to inherit all his fortune and title, you just need to give them all your passwords, bank rounting number, etc?
Anyway. Bait n switch. Already had the yahoo acct, got tired of getting targeted in the Green Servers (WH) for being a girl when I played because my old id was obviously feminine. Didn't realize its because I was a REAL rookie. So I wanted a gender ambiguous ID.
So I went with Batenswytch. Its now my alter ego. If you ran into me on the street and called me Bates or Switch, I'd answer to it without thinking.
I was just wondering how or why everyone picked their name. I'll start first:
"Bill, go see Bob."
After Bill was in trouble, I'd tell him to go see Bob.
(I was a leadman in the company and Bob was the owner)
This happened quite often so everyone started to call me
Bill was Bob's son and it was an ongoing joke.
we got this thread in BHD but I`ll post here aswell
Shouper is how I pronounced my name when I was a baby-toddler (Joshua... yea its ways off...) and my momk kepted that nickname, so I choose to choose it. 2273 is just something I`ve put behind all my user names and I`m going to keep that going.
sadly as many of mentioned on the mic, in the Urben dictineary Shouper means shower pooper
