Hi there,

Please don't feel that you are not wanted here. I'm not quite sure what user name you had before, but maybe it was just a bit long? We try and preserve space here at HW sometimes!! I'm sure it wasn't a reflection of you, or meant to be negative at all. Please stick with us and share your story, you will find that we really are nice and supportive people here. Kitt is a real sweetheart and she will always take the time to listen to you.

I'm really sorry that your brother passed away last year. That must be tough. My brother calls me Mog. He is the only one that gets away with it! Hope you stick around :-)

Please understand you are welcome. people here are not judgemental, there are just forum rules that we all abide by, and im sure you werent aware- of course you are wanted here, its a place where everyone can feel comfortable. and Kitt is a super kind person. she has a wealth of positive advice and is incredibly caring.

i am truly sorry for the loss you have experienced, i cant imagine grief on that scale. i wont pretend to know exactly what you are feeling, but i will say, this is a place where you can be yourself. ive felt really accepted and im a mess, but i feel support here. i hope you stay.

Please don't be angry with Kitt, I was the one who noticed it.
I have taken medieval religion (history is one of my undergrads) so I did know what it meant. I assumed by your email address you did too. I apologize if you did not know the negative context of the name, as it is associated with the female form of incubus (which we did make that member change his name too, so it is not just you). It sounds like your brother did not know the neg context (since he associated it with fairies) and I am sorry that you have such a terrible loss. Again I apologize.

Believe me it is not that you are not wanted here, it is that the name is just that is it not appropriate for 13 year old's eyes.
If we were all over 18 here I might not said anything about it.
Just to offer a different perspective here can you imagine how a young male sexual assult victim might see that name as offensive?  Especially one who was assualted while sleeping? Just something to think about because obviously we cannot endorse any illegal act (unconscious (sleeping), is unable to give consent) even if it is jokingly referred too.

It is nothing against you as a person, it is just that we need to be considerate of things that maybe offensive to others.
Again I apologize for any hurt that has been caused and I hope you stay.

I am also in agreement that KITT did not set out to hurt you
That name is a name that has been correctly defined by Navy
I am so sorry also for your loss

Please know you are still wanted here and the members and mods are great
Moderators are ill and have problems just like other members
We volunteer hours to keep forums running smoothly

Here are 2 of the rules you skirted
WE DO understand YOU did NOT know at the time you put the other name on here

12. If it shouldn’t be viewed by minors, then it shouldn’t be posted to the forums or chat rooms. This is a public, family-friendly forum. In addition, if something would not be considered “work safe” (to a boss or co-worker), then it shouldn’t be posted.

13. Do not disrespect moderators. Be respectful in both the forums and any private communications with moderators. Moderators are volunteers that donate many, many hours of their own time to help in the forums and chat rooms. .

** Again I am so sorry for the misunderstanding and I DO hope you will stay with us
Kitt is not a mean nor vindictive person at all .......
I know she was only concerned with the first name you used
THE names are let thru until they are seen and if something is needed to be done the moderators or Admin will do it

Tale care and again
PLEASE accept my condolences and hoping you stay
