Hi everyone,

I do not really want to create a controversy.  I belong to a number of
groups and it is more common to use just a first name than also a last.
Some groups where professionals coincide amoungst amateurs may have the
professionals (ie teachers who use their school ISP) using their last names
routinely.  When it is apparent that there are more than one person by the
same first name, some may opt to use a last initial.  This is not something
I have ever done.  I stand by my offer to remove myself from the group if it
will be deemed necessary to use a last name (and no a fake last name isn't
an option - I'd just forget what I'd used).

Warmly
Jane - Australia
