I just wanted to reiterate that it is a Forum Rule for everyone to sign their posts with their real name.
However, I will go and relax the "requirement" that both first and last names are required (but still encouraged!) in every post. Both are still required in your Profile (http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/member.php?action=editprofile) but if you feel more comfortable signing off your posts with just your first name (like I've been doing -- Sorry!), please feel free to do so.
Thanks for participating in these Forums, everyone.
