    @Kittypaws, that's just an automatic message that appears when someone enters chat. It used to just say "such-and-such entered the chatroom" but you can customise it, and we cycle through themes. The current theme seems to be "insults", so anyone who enters the room gets called a knobhead. But it's just the chatroom software printing it automatically. It's absolutely nothing personal, and everyone else gets exactly the same message when they enter, only with their name in it instead of yours :-)

    EDIT: To be clear, it wasn't Underdunn who said it. It just appeared immediately below his message because he was the last person who'd said anything.

    @jmc2000, I get that, but it doesn't matter - I'm not going in there ever again. :-(

    And as the only person who knows the admin password, @jmc2000 is clearly responsible for that vile entrance message! Shame on him!

    Apart from that I don't have that much to say anymore, to be called names is something else. I don't call anyone else names.

    No one called you names though. Unless you count the automated message who calls everyone names. Do you want us to tell off the entrance bot for you?

    But no one called you a name. No one was expecting anyone except the regulars to come in. No one set it up to call *you* a name. It just automatically insults anyone who walks in, with the exact same wording. When I enter chat it prints the exact same message, but with "jmc2000" instead of "Kittypaws".

    :-)

    We always change the automatic messages to silly things... if you'd come in on Hallowe'en it might have said "Eek! It's the ghost of Kittypaws" or something. On Christmas: "Kittypaws runs down the stairs to open her presents." But it's always the exact same message for anyone who comes in, printed automatically, with just the name changing :-)

    Now seriously. When I imagine @Kittypaws being angry at automatic welcome message, I can't stop laughing. :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:
