I have Google set up to ping me on mentions of my name (which is, unlike some, unique enough that I can be pretty sure that any such ping will be for me personally). This evening I got one from a forum where the message name was "Arggghhh -- No, no, Ryk Spoor!". Given that this echoed the "No, John Ringo, No", I had to go see what horrible crime I'd committed. Was it sexism? Insensitivity to racial issues? Exploitation?
No, it was the fact that I'd used the word "octopi" as a plural of "Octopus".
Amazing what things push different people's buttons. :)
