Should you ever meet more of them you will see:  Jer is no jerk, even if you did not mean it that way.  Nice guy and thoughtful.  Any orgy with Ory there would be a yawner for sure.  eyebp means it to be read that way, even if he never bps.  MsRob and pompous go together like red beans and rice.  Not sure if he is a Libertarian, or a closet Liberal.  :)

Zeke, when I titled the thread "Names I can't get right", I meant it.  Names I can't get right (due to dyslexia, ADD, stupidity, or whatever), not what the people behind them are like in real life.

I've noticed how nice Jer seems to be.  Would like to meet him someday.  My stupid brain just reads his handle the wrong way.

Orgy and yawn aren't words that typically go together, but somehow that's what my brain sees - no reflection intended on him in any way.

eyebp was intended as a bit of a joke.

As noted, PL is MR's self-description.

I am a substitute teacher who starts every day having to call roll in a district with a large number of Hmong, Mexican and Tolowa students. Getting names wrong does not surprise me but getting them right surprises everyone.

Here on the boards Sarbar I wanted to have both syllables rhyme with bar until she explained it was from Sara and bear

I also knew wycanislatrans but still try to get Wyoming Canada and something about an Island in transit. Instead of the wolf he references. And my name, people just keep repeating it.
