Response to I hate to disagree with you,MsJellicle,but.....
It's also indicative of troll behaviour and it just makes sense to keep the same name.
It may seem fun to change you name weekly, but it's confusing. It's hard to follow posts if one week you're posting as Fluffimabub and the next week you change to Sillajerry, and the next you change to Rumplestoffelees.
By reading the posts of the same person you generally get a sense of how much they know on the topic...you develop a level of trust in their replies.. With a new name it seems the person is new and you treat their posts with a suspicion because you really don't know the poster's level of knowlege on the topic.
If you change you name once every six months or so and announce it..it's better. (Changing the name every week and announcing it will make you a very annoying person.)
Also, if you put spaces after punctuation your message is easier to read. The [s p a c e b a r] is your friend.
