Windows 7: User Rename.

25 Feb 2011   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit


to be honest, do you see somewhere in my name, avatar or signature '3rd' or 'Division'? The answer is no. There's no context. You can only assume that based on some further unspecified hunch of yours and the fact that Totenkopf is in German, but nobody denies that. Doing the same, what you do, looking at johnwillyums and based on Karl Marx in his signature, I could say, he's associated with the Marxists and there's of course a connection to Communism, Russia, show trial, executions, etc. But why would I do that? I don't care and I don't know the reason and all the details, while you - based on 2 rather random letters and a German name - show me as some 'Nazi', which is rather a little bit silly. If I told you that the initials actually are meant to link to that 'Nazi' group, than fine, but too bad for you, I've never said anything like that.

And thus it brings us to a conclusion, which is this. Better stay on-topic, this is a support forum for Windows platform and not a discussion club about which letters mean what. I'd personally stick to Shadow Scopes a.k.a. SS. An old on-line game team tag. Believe it or not, we're not members of NSDAP at all. Just to make it clear, so you can finally sleep well, while knowing that you're not stalked by some secret 'Nazi' assassins. And finally, I must agree with johnwillyums. If you don't have anything to say, rather ignore these things, it'll only lead to embarrassing situations like this one.

Thank you for understanding.

Best Regards,
