It was chosen from a set of supposedly joke names that should have been assigned to the rubbish bin some years ago - no better than school boy sniggerings or some of the other offensive things like the Robinson's Jam mascot.

As for the rest of my comments, I am not sorry. Some of the attitudes/comments displayed on this thread to the female gender are totally outdated, inappropriate and offensive - just like my nom de plume. Maybe some of you could also reflect like I have on what is wrong? Even if you were born in an era when women were banned from soccer and only over-30s were allowed to vote; things change, and they have, for the better.

Finally, there is a very good reason why nicknames, monikers or nom de plumes are used on PPRuNe by those still serving; if you are serving you cannot be seen to publically criticise things whilst actively promoting your full identity. Otherwise, the press would start quoting "Fg Off Snodgrass on PPRuNe said...". I am sure you know that. Maybe in years to come I can buy you a beer and tell you face to face who I am and why I think your position is so very wrong. Until that day comes, and I retire, then it's not an option.

Once again, I apologise to the females on this forum for my childish and inappropriate use of my nom de plume that I chose to use.

Over and out...
Excellent post, Leon. Might I suggest you ask the mods to simply change your user name to say "Leon J"? That way, the displayed name on the posts you have made will change, and will not be "orphaned".

Either that, or "Ivor Biggun", which isn't sexist. Just "sizist"

Ah, was that tall, ginger Dave 'Hunt for Hunters' who was at Leeming '66/'67?
Glad to read he got them.

I am thinking of putting a bid to be the thickest member on PPRuNe!

In all the years I have been on here I must have seen hundreds of posts by Leon Jabachjabicz and never tumbled what the name actually meant

One of my best friends in my youth was a Leon, and he had a Polish surname. Were it not for this thread I would probably thus have carried on thinking that LJ's family was of some unspecified Slavic origin

I'll assure Tanker there's a few thick ones here. And in Leon's defence he has always been a total gentleman on here officer or not.

Yes indeed ... a good mate of mine too. I was fortunate to be 20's "Pet ATCO" as a Secondary Duty, so got to know a lot of them quite well [as far as one could in a Ground Branch ]

Too tall for Gnats, he had to do Valley on the Hunter where he clearly showed ability. FEAF and 20 Sqn for a 1st Tour fg off must have been a treat, as it also was for a young fg off P T Squire

Tankertrashnav (#164),

..."I am thinking of putting a bid to be the thickest member on PPRuNe!"...
"In all the years I have been on here I must have seen hundreds of posts by Leon Jabachjabicz and never tumbled what the name actually meant"...

I must've had a sheltered childhood. Neither do I ! But I don't blush easily. TTN, please PM and whisper it gently into my shell-like ear (but only TTN - I don't want my inbox bunged up with you all crowding in).

Danny.

TTN, regarding your post about Leon J. I have to agree entirely and regrettably feel that things are getting slightly out of hand!

Bill.

OK I've read it repeatedly and I'm still missing something.

What is the double entendre with Leon's alias?

I had a flick through the PPRuNe Forum Rules

We do insist that you abide by the rules and policies detailed below. These rules work in conjunction with any forum-specific rules as well as the site's Terms & Conditions.

(In no particular order)

No advertising or promoting of business/commercial ventures.
No classified ads. (Either offering items or services for sale or 'wanted' items.)
No spamming.
No links to other aviation websites.
No multiple posting. (Duplicate posts in more then one forum)
No flaming/personal attacks. (Play the ball, not the player.)
No libel or defamation of character. (Be careful - libelous/defamatory posts can and have landed members in legal hot water. PPRuNe will not guarantee your anonymity in such situations.)
No racist comments.
No offensive/abusive posts.
No swearing, sexually explicit or vulgar language.
No sexually explicit material, nor links to websites containing such material.
Do not post anyone else's address or telephone number.
Do not 'out' (reveal or attempt to reveal) the identity of another poster.

Do not reveal the contents of Private Messages (PMs) in the forums.
Do not post copyrighted material for which you do not have permission.
Stay on topic.

Posts breaching any of the above will be removed and your posting privileges may be suspended or removed permanently.
My highlight in bold, but I suspect that some have nibbled on the edges of these rules.

Also, when it comes to usernames it would not be possible for LJ to change the username as it says on the registration page (again my bold).

A username is a nickname which will be visible on the forum...
...You will not be able to change your username. Do not use a username that you may need or want to change, for example, do not your current airport or location/airport code or include any part of your real name or email address, etc...
So +1 on LJ's post but who is somewhat snookered by the PPRuNe username rules and the gender-equality conundrum posed with the poor choice of a username chosen some years ago. It's a PPRuNe Catch22!

PS. It would seem that some of the arguments on gender equality are 'front and centre' right now in the news following the BBC's salaries being revealed today.

Jesus Christ on a bike! Your nom de plume Leon was a play on words and obviously a joke. I wouldn't change it just because you've outed a few "Tyranasaurus Mysoginist" on here. The attitudes you have highlighted are anything but a joke.

I'm with TTN, I hadn't realised. But he's one of the posters that i have enjoyed reading. I hope he rejoins under another nom de plume.

My understanding from another post somewhere is that it is Lay-on ya back ya bitch.

Danny - see your PMs, but I see that artee has spilled the beans in any case!

I always thought Dan Winterland was a good one, although it took me years to work that one out as well!

artee

"Dan Win" "ter land"

ie not Cross wind, not turning base three greens, but Dan Win .....

EDIT: BTW TT It's more likely I am thicker than you Sir. Comes with the uniform. Apparently we're all delusional about air power as well, but that's another argument and another thread as luck would have it!

At the risk of giving this thread more oxygen than it deserves, has anyone considered context?
