Wow - it's from France! Could it be real?

What really tickles me is the name - scifiknitter. I have decided that choosing this particular nom de plume is probably one of the most original things I have ever done. Just last night I signed up for a membership at another viral website, and once again scifiknitter was available. I've never been told that someone else is already using the name.

Obviously, though, I have overused it, and it is slipping into the internet-at-large. I fear a barrage of spam is in the offing.
