Ok that's it !!
This is a high-traffic forum and I'm kind of getting sick teaching people how to read. When you register you have to read the naming policy which is not that long and requires you to register with a first name, a space and a last name.
From now on I'll adopt a slightly modified version of the Mark Herschberg's tactic which consists of closing the discussions initiated by anyone who does not comply with our naming policy, that is our unique rule BUT unlike Mark I won't give any reason or explanation, this message being one. I'll try and resurrect this post soon enough...
I'm sorry guys, but this is getting out of hand and I don't have time to teach people how to read, my job is to teach people Java.
Any comments are welcome of course, although I'd prefer not discussing this matter in this forum

I'm new to this forum and so far so good. But i had one problem when trying to sign up. I entered my name and it did not accept it as there was already someone with the same name. I'm just a little confused. Why can't two people have the same name?

You can use a middle initial

That would be a good idea if i had one, lol.
I'm not sure the reason behind it but mainly just curious
I agree. Here's the link:
