Yes! (Sorry sluice and solving)

But I used to mix those 2 up....but now I don't.

Haha, I just realized something. :oops:

Nick007, and cdfox7....I may have called cdfox007 instead :lol:

Also Tally man and Booyakasha, but they do a pretty good job of being separate if that makes any sense?

Finally, this is really weird...but...do you ever mix up the gender of some people? For instance, I first thought cockneyrebel was a boy, but then I think I looked at their profile and got the impression that they were a girl, but I think I looked again and they are a boy. I forget easily. :roll: :oops:

It confuses me sometimes when people change their avatar. Also I have been a bit mixed up about a couple of people's gender :?

Surprisingly that doesn't mix me up, but it is half annoying/ half interesting when people do that.

Thank you! I am not the only person who gets confused about that! You do not know how happy that makes me. :lol:

I think some people on here are quite fluid about their gender, and do change it on their profiles. Or they are just being deliberately confusing.

I should stop changing my avatar, but I get bored of looking at the same picture.

I don't even recognise those names. Their avatars would probably be familiar though.

^ Well their avatars are both the same :P

I used to confuse some people, a while back, but now I don't really.
Sometimes I am actually surprised when I look at their gender on their profile. And also I seem to instinctually guess the location of some people who don't disclose their location on their profile.

Though I'm usually wrong with that.

i confuse people all the time, especially if they don't use an avatar.

i am terrible at guessing gender, as apparently i am not able to discern much from writing style.

The guys who have a female photo as their avatar really confuse me. I'm halfway through the post when I realise it's a guy and then I remember that I'd worked that out before. Also, sometimes I think it could be a photo of the user, if I'm unfamilar with the famous person in their avatar.
I'm not in my avatar :lol: I'm not sure how popular the IT Crowd is around the globe.

So do I :P

Actually one of us is charming, intelligent and compassionate and the other one is me. :wink:

<-- That is me in the photo. Or is it Booyakasha? I forget. :scratch:

Ah I remember now, Booyakasha has more chin stubble and is built like a lumberjack. :P

The IT Crowd should be compulsory viewing for all. Part of the national curriculum. As should Spaced.

Henbane I really like your current avatar. I should get one myself soon really I just get too indecisive, it's silly.

Mummy_of_Peanut I do that aswell. I like the bits I've seen of the IT Crowd, mmmm I wonder if it's on 4od............

Me too (to the first sentence), and vice versa. Of course, people seem to think I'm a girl regardless. :P
But that reminds me, on another forum I had pictures of Naveen Andrews (from Lost) in my sig for a while, until I got sick of people asking if it was me. Seriously, who hasn't seen Lost? I don't even have a TV and I've seen Lost (and the IT Crowd). :lol:
