Re: What the reason behind your username?

nice thread idea.

I'm a footie fan first and foremost, and trequartista is the Italian word for my favorite position on the field. A trequartista plays behind the two forwards, and is the driving creative force behind the team. The most exciting players to watch - Kaka, Totti, Deco, Del Piero, Ronaldinho, Pirlo (when he was younger) - are trequartistas. Plus I just like the word.

Re: What the reason behind your username?

I wish I had an exciting story behind the name but it's just my school username... Very interesting to read other people's reasons though - good thread idea!

Re: What the reason behind your username?

Carlita is my nickname given to me by my friend from Barcelona. She found it difficult to pronounce my real name (who doesnt ) and because I'm a huge Moya fan she decided to call me Carlita.

Re: Whats the reason behind your username?

I was reading a couple of papers by Robert C. Merton at the time I joined the board, so I decided to honour the great man.

Salvor Hardin: "Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent"

From Isaac Asimov's "Foundation".
