Word count msn usernames

Correct me if I'm wrong, but messenger programmes are designed with the expressed intention of bringing people together when they couldn't otherwise be brought together due to their slightly concerning habitual internet use. Their purpose is thus largely friendly.

However some people insist on taunting me with smug word count usernames, highlighting their superior ability to skilfully and precisely hit a word count. These people are scum.

Thoughts?

  1. They are scum. Their industriousness placates the dark shame of not being funny. My word count is 0 and my MSN name is "Respect the Critique, and Tame the Kant". That corrolation can't just be an accident.

  2. i use my username a) as a reminder to me and whoever is thankfully interupting my essay that it needs to be done
    b) to let considerate people know when it's safe to talk to me as i won't be stressing about hitting the word limit

  3. Couldn't agree more. Nobody likes a showoff!

  4. My word count username that I had a while back was just to see how long it took me to progress through an essay and so other people could see me falling victim to last minuteness. Not so that people could see me hit the target. We get penalised for writing over the exact word limit. We can't go anymore than a word over, if we do, they ignore the extra words.

  5. I've resolved not to mention work in my MSN names form now on since someone pointed out to me that my MSN names were acting as a window to my soul and I was mentioning work far too often to be healthy…

  6. MSN names don't act as windows to my soul, they're never depressing enough.

    I think your MSN name can reflect on your thoughts and soul and Enlighten other people it is not always bad to use MSN Messenger name!

  8. Yes! It annoys me so much. If it's to show how few words you've done then stop being on MSN and do some work, if it's because you've done lots of words then it's just arrogant. Bah!

    MSN names should be amusing quotes or funny comments to help people see the funny side of life!
    gah!

    What does 'Respect the Critique, and tame the Kant' even mean? It sounds smart and sophisticated so I'm currently using it as my msn name but what does it mean?

  12. Hmm, well the debate may have moved on- but I really don't think wordcount usernames are that bad. As was suggested above, they do at least remind you (me) of the hellish amount of work I always seem to have remaining, something pretty essential given the convenience of MSN for procrastination purposes…

    Besides, they don't completely preclude the use of hi_lar_ious quotes in names, you can just tack the words to the back of the name.

    Hmm, as for Adrienne's name, I assume it was a Magnolia reference; either that, or she's just subconsciously using Tom Cruise's words as a result of all that swooning over Legend

    well you can tell how a person feels by his/her name eg, A broken heart continues to beat it means even thow they have a broken heard they are livin on x

    Um, msn names r meant to be a laugh, or to tell someone; or a group of people, something before they talk to u, e.g. ah broke my fing leg again, or luv ya xyz. so somethin that u otherwise wouldnt necessarily say in a convo. THE WORST MSN NAMES ARE THE DEPRESSING ONES - THEY HAVE TO STOP, AND I MUST SAY, WITHOUT ANY SEXIST VIEW, THAT IT IS THE FEMALES.

    My MSSN username is " PAINT ME AS I AM". It is a constant reminder to be true to myself and also to let other people know , " Don't make assumptions about someone that you don't know".

    i think you'll find that the 'user message' is for writing about pointless cr@p and how you are feeling ;)

    a 'username' is primarily to distinguish between contacts. ;)

    I think that people are entitled use whatever username they wish and usernames like: My imaginary friend thinks you have serious mental problems is just a laugh. I dont know why people can get so offended, its just a small joke.
