Argh

Can we agree on not calling Anthony Towns AJ?

Every time someone refers to AJ in the lists or in Planet Debian, it takes me a few moments to realize it's not me they are talking about. Let's face it, AJ is a fairly obvious nickname for anybody with the (partial) initials A. J. And there are bound to be many of those. I personally discourage people calling me A(-)J, but there still are many people who do so. Since I have been called that by many people since eigth grade (around 1991), I have learned to respond to that name. I personally use it only in the three-letter signature AJK.

It took me some time to realize that Joe Wreschnig wasn't calling my reading of the old SC very strange, and even now I cannot be 100 % sure.

Update: Joe has updated his post to no longer refer to Anthony as AJ.
