I didn't notice that either.  I thought some alien had taken over Jack's body.  Should GCT allow to such similar nicknames?

The photo is different but I can understand the confusion with the names.

I didn't see anything sarcastic in the three replies; I thought both Jancie and Ed were trying to be helpful. I guess some people interpret posts differently.

Oh well,  I guess my wife is correct after all---I was mistaken! but honestly, I did not note the difference....now I owe an apology to Jack...Sorry Jack...I will try to be more careful in the future...

Jack, thanks for the chuckle.

By the way, there is an underscore at the end of my profile name because "janice" was already in use. I haven't seen her post in the forum and I rather hope she never does.

Do you mean Centaur has returned?  We should have recognized that nasty tone.  How did you find out?

Janice is sharp; I didn't pick up on that, but now thinking about the attack on Ed, I think she may be correct.

Like Hansel and Gretel, I followed the bread crumbs, one of them being the photo. For a more detailed explanation, you can contact me at

To janice_, I have not used your suggested workaround as I have another Windows 7/IE 9 computer to access GCT.  No need to experiment with another method.

Thank you Michelle for your phone call...The referenced post did not upset me but  I was simply horrified that I may have upset a valued member of this forum not realizing that the names were so similar...Your input and action on suggestions and recommendations on this site is appreciated and valued--I know most forum contributors feel the same way THANKS!

In case nobody noticed, that person deleted one of his posts but not both. 

Ed, did Michelle say anything about the Forum not allowing such similar nicknames in the future?

Hello Wattsed -

I am glad we had the opportunity to chat.  The members of our Community share a lot of great information here.  We want the Forum to be a friendly place where people feel welcome.

Pauline, at the moment, our system only disallows "exact matches" on Forum Member names.  From time to time, different members may have similar names.  The member photos can help differentiate between 2 "not so different" names.

Kind Regards,

Michelle
