I've added an exclamation mark to his username. I believe there are chat admins that can explain why this is a good thing :)

or you could just tell us and save us the trouble (and the chat admins trouble) of everyone having to ask why, now that I'm intrigued =)

Ordinarily, that ! stands for !diot.

Mesoshort May 14 2009 10:15 AM EDT

ID10t error? ;D

But yes, what does the ! mean in a name? Is that like chat banned or something?

He was very abusive in chat, cursing at every opportunity.

That is certainly not allowed.

ahh, thanks Ranger

does the ! affect forums too?

Just curious (and forgetful).

Typing long posts on my Iphone is not my favorite hobby, that's why my initial post was a bit short :)

No, a ! in the name does not affect forum posting, there's a different option for that.

I foresee a new term entering our language, such as it is.

Ipwned.... getting pwned by Bart's Iphone!

I thought Bart was going to step up and take care of the problem... but it turns out he just phoned it in. ::rimshot::

My apologies for the pun...
