I thought Sesquipedalian was well... Sesquipedalian. Or is this somekind of sick joke on the n00b?
Well, Sesquipedalian and I are never around at the same time, are we?
No, actually, shortly before I joined HLP, I had to pick an internet handle and I picked "Sesquipedalian", for exactly the same reasons that our Sesquipedalian did. And then Sesquipedalian and I registered here and at the VWBB at almost exactly the same time -- three days apart to be exact (check our registration dates). The funny thing was, Sesquipedalian registered here first, and I registered at the VWBB first, so there were two different Sesquipedalians in the FreeSpace community. Then Sesquipedalian registered at the VWBB as Sesquipedalian!, causing even more confusion.
Apparently Sesquipedalian had been using his handle for longer than I had, maybe at the VBB or somewhere, so he and I had a chat and I decided to change my username to Goober5000, both here and at the VWBB. I've been Goober5000 ever since.
