Ok, in that case I do owe Shlomi an apology for my default assumption
that the name was fake.

My recommendation for that possibility stands then. Sorry to be blunt,
but the name does sound fake and childish to people not knowledgeable
with Jewish culture and knowledge other many factoids that Rick beats
many of us on.

I really would help to put a small signature "this is my real name,
please see http://.. ".

Usually I give people the benefit of the doubt, but the name looked too
take to me, so sorry for that part.
