Glad to see a new quality site dedicated to HazMat information! We need these to help educate the public and gain valuable information from. I hope to be a regular contributor at this site, in my area of expertise, and learn from others.
Hey this is a great site for all of us to train and learn from. May I suggest that you change your name like everyone else has done. If you do not feel comfortable with this maybe you should try another site. There is no need to give anyone a hard time over it, follow the rules like everyone else or leave. We allow one person to do it for any reason we must allow others . It is like rules at the firehouse you may not like them but you have to a bide by them. This is our firehouse and these are our rules, again please change to your real name. Please forgive me for being blunt but we follow the rules and so should you. We are all family here and we all use our real names! Todd McKee

It appears you are disgruntled by your treatment of being asked to fix your name. I am only doing my job as an appointed administrator by policing this site by the rights given to me by Chief Halton and FE. I go by what the policy is and if you say Chief Halton says it's okay to allow it, then it's done. I sent him an email so I will wait to see what he says.
It's not an issue of posting, it's an issue that you are not complying with forum policy. We (the admin) are asking everyone to put their full name and no exceptions. You can put hazmatnerd in parentheses between your names or at the end. Unless Chief Halton tells me otherwise you need to follow the policy of using your full name.

Please allow me to introduce myself my name is Bobby Halton. I am writing to you to request that you update your profile to include both your first and last name. When we created this community we decided that in order to have professional honest and open indications we would require of all of our members that they use their true first and last names. So far it has worked out very well, if you have a specific reason for not wanting to do so please contact me directly. Thanks for joining your brother Bobby
Thank you for taking the time to post your love for HazMat on this site. This is the greatest site in the world and is for the serious trainers that want to learn and grow from each other. Your knowledge for HazMat is awesome, but you MUST use your real name in this group. This is a tradition here that EVERYONE must follow. Could you please update your profile with your real name and title and rank. Again, thank you for what you have shared so far. Remember be safe & keeping training! Todd McKee
