Change his nick pffft... how about this nick, "screw u HT". Incase he doesn't want that one, I'll proudly wear it just to give Neg another laugh. Anyways... I was one of the first members with "The" in my name then other people started doing it. Its not his fualt all the cool variations of my name are taken. You yourself have just suggested a book that covers things with the touch of dare I say the phrase... "kiddie-gloves".
One minor thing you may want to consider if you're going to stick around here, which is a good idea, is a nick change... Your name seems very skiddie-ish... and it might not go over well with some members... but that's just a suggestion.. it's not the be all and end all.
